The Maya Mahahual Theme Park, carries an estimated 60% advance in its construction that takes place in an area of 1.71 hectares, will have a maximum capacity or capacity of up to a thousand people a day.

The work includes extensive remodeling in Cruise dock which includes the upcoming opening of three themed restaurants, including a river, zip lines, a roller coaster, water games, slides, pools, solarium areas, shopping, administrative offices and a Mayan pyramid 24 meters high with a set of parachute drop, which will be the main attraction

The work started in November 2014 and is expected to be inaugurated in December this year.



I have been telling people for quite a while now that the park was going to open this year, but they did not believe me.  I also warned people if they wanted to buy a lot or a house in Mahahual, this summer was the time to do it before the news of the water park opening went public.  Now prices are going to go up because of the demand for housing and land now in Mahahual.

The new water park will also attract bigger and better cruise ships to Costa Maya, along with Mexican tourists from Mexico City and other large cities.  I think Mahahual is on the verge of a land and housing boom, don’t say I did not warn you.
