21/12/2009This New Year, Cancun Is Better Than Ever!

Recognized around the world for their unique beauty, the beaches of Cancun, investing USD $71 Million ($957 millones pesos), have initiated a recovery project whose results are already visibly astounding.

The project continues to progress and in a timely manner.
Sponsored by the state and federal government, local municipalities and private investors, the project’s purpose is to replenish more than 6.8 miles of sand between Punta Cancun and Punta Nizuc within a 70 to 80 day period of time. As a result, a spectacular beach oasis of more than 131 feet (40 meters) in width is expected.

The project, setting forth on September 4, 2009, began with the arrival of more than a thousand tons of specialized equipment. The project is expected to be completed in February 2010.

About Cancun:

Cancun, the gateway to Mexico and the Mayan world, offers luxurious hotel infrastructure with more than 28,000 rooms, and is Mexico’s most beautiful and stylish destination. Opportunities for new experiences are everywhere, as the setting brings you into contact with both nature and Mayan culture like nowhere else.

Top-level gastronomy and nightlife; warm beaches with soft, white sand; crystal-clear, turquoise seas; and a location opposite the Great Mesoamerican Reef System, in tandem with Mexico’s world-famous hospitality, make Cancun an entirely unique tourist destination.
