Protected areas in Quintana Roo

Three new areas were designated as “protected” this past April in Quintana Roo: The Cozumel Wetland and Jungle State Reserve, with 19,846.450 hectares; the Chichankanab Lagoon System State Reserve, with 11,609.732 hectares; and the Bacalar Lagoon State Ecologic Park, with approximately 5 hectares.

The destination continues to generate projects that integrate environmental conservation, sustainable development, and institutional coordination, one of the most important in Mexico.
