Maya Ka'an

(May 2014)

Amigos de Sian Ka'an proudly announces the recent launch of Maya Ka'an, the new ecotourism destination of Quintana Roo, and first of its kind in Mexico. This event took place in the frame of the Mexican Tourism Tianguis in Cancun. Maya Ka'an is designed to facilitate the conservation of Sian Ka'an Biosphere Reserve, a World Heritage Site, while promoting the sustainable development of local communities of central Quintana Roo. Maya Ka'an improves the commercial viability of local ecotourism projects already operating, and represents a model to demonstrate that low-density, nature- and culture-oriented tourism is a real alternative of environmental-friendly development. Maya Ka'an diversifies Quintana Roo's tourism options and offers a unique experience to the rest of Mexico and the world.
Maya Ka'an, a destination that opens infinite opportunities in the future, is a concept promoted by Amigos de Sian Ka'an, the Mesoamerican Reef Tourism Initiative (MARTI), and the Riviera Maya Promotion Trust. It was made possible with the generous funding provided by The Multilateral Investment Fund of the Interamerican Development Bank (IDB - MIF), UNDP Small Grants Program, Fundemex, Microsoft, Fundación ADO
