Xcaret submits plans for new He’Elel Riviera Maya theme park

Riviera Maya, Q.R. — Grupo Experiencias Xcaret is looking to add another theme park to the region with the submission of an environmental plan for a new ecopark for Riviera Maya.

The company submitted their application October 2 to the Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources. If approved, Xcaret would be authorized to build He’Elel on land located south of the municipality of Solidaridad.

Through information on the Environmental Impact Statement, the proposed park would revolve around ecotourism and provide a nature park of underground rivers and cenotes where visitors can also participate in hiking and biking.

The theme park would consist of the necessary buildings as well as palapas, ziplines, kayak area and a railway line for inside travel around the park.

He’Elel is being proposed on 55 hectares with an estimated investment of 80 million peso.

Last month, the company announced the opening date for its most recent park, Xavage, which is scheduled for December 10, 2018. During that announcement, they also said they are planning to construct a new park Xibalbá (meaning underworld in Mayan), near Valladolid, Yucatan.
