The erosion of Rivera Maya and Caribbean beaches has worsened and climate change continues to impact trade winds and ocean currents. As a result, beaches have suffered a loss of sand and beach corrosion.
Luckily, Mayakoba Tourism Development has a plan to rehabilitate its coastal ecosystems. Their innovative and comprehensive plan will ideally increase sea level not only in the Caribbean, but worldwide.
A strategic alliance was made with expert scientists from the School of Engineering at the National Autonomous University of Mexico as well as local technical, environmental and legal partners.
Mayakoba will use sustainable technology to rebuild the coastal dunes, place barriers as protection against erosion and waves, recover sand on the beach and reefs and create new coral barriers.
Mayakoba Tourism Development seeks to act as a pioneer by adopting this plan.
