A “Camino del Mayab” will allow hikers and bikers to explore a 100-kilometer walking circuit that runs through 13 localities in Yucatan.

The project is being created by the eco-tourism group EcoGuerreros (Eco Warriors) Yucatán and is expected to be completed in December 2020.

In addition to enjoying the attractions of the municipalities, communities can have tourism that is sustainable, high quality and safe, said Ulyses Huesca Tercero, general director of Ecoguerreros.

The route will cover Abalá, Tecoh, Sacalum, Mérida and Umán, starting from the archaeological zone of Mayapán and will end at the Dzoyaxché estate, in the Cuxtal Ecological Reserve.

During the tour, there will be a region of biological connectivity between two important protected natural areas of the State of Yucatán: the Geohydrological Reserve at the cenote ring and the Cuxtal conservation area, where haciendas, cenotes, Mayan roads and farms will be visited.

Signposts will help guide the eco-tourists, who can stay overnight at any of the destinations.

The project is made possible by the Yucatan Peninsula Climate Fund, the United Nations Development Program, and more than 10 other institutions and organizations.
