I’m interested to hear what the general consensus is about the construction of the new Tulum International Airport. My understanding is that it has been given the go ahead and they are just trying to decide between three companies as to who is going to construct it. I thought about the pros and cons, and wonder if it was inevitable that this would happen with Tulum being in such a central part of the Quintana Roo coast.
The cons, for anyone who has been to Tulum, are obvious. The destruction of more jungle, more pollution, displacement of wildlife, more traffic etc etc. In effect Tulum could become the new Cancun, as each year more and more people come through Cancun airport, but less stay for a Cancun Vacation.
Pros could be less traffic into Cancun, easier access to the big resorts in the Riviera Maya, it would allow for the development of Bacalar and Majahual, provide a lot of jobs, more money to the area, etc etc.
One thing is for sure Tulum as we know it, would also definitely change!
What do you think?
