The Green Yucatan Peninsula

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

The Yucatan Peninsula, a place full of natural beauty and ancient culture, is home to the popular vacation destinations, Cancun, Riviera Maya and Cozumel. With the birth of Cancun in the early 1970s there was a great boom in tourism causing the region to grow at a rapid rate that may have been too fast for its own good. It was in this era of the 1970s that not many places throughout the world were actively concerned with environmental protection, perseveration or sustainable living. However, in retrospect, like many other vacation destinations, the Yucatan Peninsula has seen the light and has become very active in these missions.
