PLAYA DEL CARMEN, Q. Roo – During the second half of 2017, the Quintana Roo office of the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) will conduct an inspection at the new DreamWorks recreation park and tourist development in the Riviera Maya, to supervise the possible discoveries of archaeological remains.

Adriana Velázquez Morlet, director of this institution, urged developers that operate in the municipality of Solidaridad to take into consideration the participation of this institute, as it’s important to conduct research aimed at the preservation of any Mayan constructions in the property where the park is projected.

“We are doing an intense work; at the moment we are supervising all new developments such as Mayakoba City, and we will inspect the development project at DreamWorks in Punta Maroma along with other subdivisions within the area of ​​Playa del Carmen”, said the archaeologist.

As previously reported by, DreamWorks Animation Studios will operate two theme parks in the Riviera Maya: Dream Park and Thrill Park.

Both will be developed in two different properties with a space of almost 120 hectares or 1.2 million square meters, at kilometer 307, Federal Highway Reforma Agraria-Puerto Juárez, municipality of Solidaridad, Quintana Roo.

Three hotels plan to open their doors inside these amusement parks.

The whole area will be visited by a team of archaeologists and specialized workers for the tracing of pre-Hispanic sites, and if traces are detected they will be integrated into the updated database of archaeological sites in the state of Quintana Roo. After that, if the project called “Plan Amikoo” is approved, at least three hotels with 1,140 rooms, a shopping center, museum and even an anthropology school will be built onsite, with an investment of $3.1 billion pesos ($174 million USD).

In addition, Velázquez Morlet reported that the State’s INAH Center is currently operating fieldwork in at least five points within the municipality of Solidaridad, aiming at the conservation of any pre-Hispanic vestiges in the area.

According to INAH, the database of archaeological areas of Quintana Roo shows more than a thousand points with archaeological remains throughout the state, but as investigations carry on, this figure may increase during the next months of the year .
