The National Commission of Natural Protected Areas (CONANP) will restrict the entry of vehicles to the park every holiday season (including Semana Santa and Easter Week), warned the director of the Tulum national park, Fernando Orozco Ojeda.

“The admission fee applies since December to tourism and is 34 pesos per person. The local population does not pay and the beaches remain open to everyone”, he said.

Last year during this holiday season, the number of units that entered the Tulum National Park was 800, causing damage to dunes and coastal vegetation, that is why, from now on, the entry of motor vehicles will be restricted. The decision was made according to the national park guidelines.

Orozco Ojeda said that the same regulations apply to service providers and taxi drivers.

“The entrance to the national park is free for anyone, the beaches are still public and will remain that way. Until the services are occupied is that the collection becomes effective”, he clarified.

The entrance of cars is restricted, but people can enter by foot, bicycle, motorcycle, skateboard, there will be free transit for those type of vehicles, he added.

The restriction of vehicles entering the park was also agreed with the municipal transit authorities to collaborate on this issue at the time it is necessary to restrict the passage of motor vehicles, mostly for environmental reasons.

Each holiday season, the Cobá Sur highway and the Tulum-Boca Paila highway become crowded and conflictive. During the last holiday season the entry of vehicles had to be suspended several times during the peak hours.
