Puerto Morelos, Q.R. – In a recent inauguration, the Yum Ki’n centoe along the popular route of cenotes was reopened to the public.
Puerto Morelos municipal president Laura Fernández Piña, reopened cenote Yum Ki’n as a family recreation park, located a few kilometers from the town of Leona Vicario. The reopening of the cenote offers locals a new recreation attraction as well as a place for tourists.
The cenote was reopened after an investment by Grupo Turquesa turned it into a family recreation center offering sport fields, swimming, cabanas, mini-golf and green space for relaxing.
“Thank you for believing in Puerto Morelos and Leona Vicario. Today, believing in our state and municipalities is very important,” she says.
Yum Ki’n is located along the federal Mérida-Cancun highway on the well-known Route of the Cenotes.
Laura Fernández cut the inaugural ribbon. She was accompanied by deputy general manager of Grupo Turquesa, Luis Alegre Salazar, as well as the company’s general director, Don Gastón Alegre López.
Laura Fernández said that the new park will positively impact the tourist influx to Leona Vicario where there are approximately 3,500 foreign visitors a month arriving mostly from Europe.
“Leona Vicario has a lot to offer. The fact that they visit the cenotes is complemented by a walk through the town, to learn the gastronomy and the daily life of the inhabitants,” she added.
In a speech, she emphasized that there is a synergy with the private initiative to continue strengthening the tourism industry and that currently, Puerto Morelos has more than 5,400 hotel rooms with potential growth of 3,000 more over the next two years.
