Cancun, Q.R. – A main street in central Cancun is being converted into a pedestrian-only street.
With Cancun’s Hotel Zone at full capacity, city officials have decided to transform a large section of Avenue Nader into a pedestrian shopping street.
Carlos Gosselin Maurel, president of the Hotel Association of Cancun and Puerto Morelos (AHC) says, “One of the streets that should become a pedestrian corridor is Nader as this would return it to its origins when Cancun began and had little restaurants and the park located behind the town hall.”
He said a pending primary issue is that the downtown restaurants in central Cancun are reactivated, as the hotel zone is beyond their quota. He added that tourists venturing into Cancun’s center will see it’s attraction and know it beyond a sun and beach place.
Avenue Nader and Avenue Bonampak, which are east of Tulum Avenue and the bus station, have always had a great reputation for their boutique shops and higher-end restaurants. The popular streets run near Puerto Cancun and Malecon, which are two examples of the luxury housing developments in the area.
The streets are lined with quality commercial businesses such as high-end shopping malls, entertainment, boutique shopping, discos and restaurants. The area is also within close proximity to the Hotel Zone, making it easy for tourists to access.
