At the end of August 2017, I travelled in the Yucatán Peninsula on the Caribbean side of Mexico. Due to its many natural assets – its beautiful beaches, freshwater cenotes and Mayan culture – the Yucatán Peninsula attracts many overseas visitors. In fact, its airport at Cancun is Mexico’s second busiest international airport after Mexico City. I didn’t make it to Cancun, but I did take a short visit to the Peninsula’s other tourist hot spot – La Playa Del Carmen.
There I met with Eco-Tourism businessman Antonio Fernandez to find out more about some of the challenges and green opportunities for tourism on the Yucatán Peninsula.
