Tourism in Quintana Roo generates around 75% of the region’s GDP and supports thousands of jobs and businesses. For Mayan communities, employment opportunities are typically low-skilled, poorly-paid and often require long-distance travel to resorts.

Our aim is to facilitate the development of sustainable tourism products and services that benefit rural communities, as well as protecting environmental and cultural heritage.
