Parque La Ceiba Opens its Doors in Playa del Carmen

More and more sustainable spaces are being added in Quintana Roo that also offer a friendly place for families to enjoy nature and learn how to take care of it.

La Ceiba park, located in Playa del Carmen, Quintana Roo, has opened after being closed for almost 2 years due to the pandemic. Activities have resumed and the park is welcoming inhabitants of Playa del Carmen and all those who want to visit a natural and safe environment with their family once again.

Parque La Ceiba is an ecological and cultural space that is home to lush vegetation and local wildlife, which is why it is considered to be a “little lung” for the city.

The park was inaugurated on March 19, 2008 by the non-profit civil association Flora, Fauna and Culture of Mexico in order to promote cultural, environmental and artistic activities for the public’s well-being and promoting sustainability.

Before closing its doors, it offered a wide variety of activities for the whole family, including vacation courses for children, yoga classes for adolescents and adults, environmental tours to promote caring for the environment to children in a playful and fun way, aerial dancing, reading clubs, a cinema club, during which movies, documentaries and short films were shown, a book exchange, the sale of handicrafts made by community artisans and a special day when people were invited to help with park maintenance.

The park also promotes important programs like the Sea Turtle Program, the Community Spaces Program and programs for the conservation of green areas and environmental practices. The park reuses materials and makes them part of its decoration.

The park will celebrate its 14th anniversary and eco-cultural activities and workshops are expected to resume soon.
