Get ready for a jungle adventure!
The new water park in Mahahual, named “Mayá, Lost Mayan Kingdom”, opened its doors to locals on October 24 so they could experience this impressive new attraction, and is tentatively set for a grand opening to the general public on November 12, 2015. Park admission will range between 90 and 100 US dollars for tourists, with preferential rates available to residents of the state of Quintana Roo.
The style of Mayá, Lost Mayan Kingdom make visitors feel as if they’re on a jungle expedition, with the theme of an abandoned excavation site. It covers about 20 acres with everything you’d expect to see at a water park. Here, tourists and locals will find two zipline circuits with several ziplines each (ranging from 100 to 350 meters long) as well as a hanging bridge, restaurants, a lazy river, pools, shopping, an impressive kids splash area with smaller water slides, and a large Mayan pyramid in the center of it all. The park will feature nine water slides: six body slides, two inner tube slides, and a four-lane mat slide ranging from 12 to 24 meters high.
This new attraction is the result of 20 million pesos of investment, with a capacity of at least 1000 visitors per day and immediately creating 150 direct jobs. The goal of Mayá is to diversify the tourist attractions available in the Mahahual / Costa Maya region and hopefully at least double the area’s current number of visitors.
