Discover the natural and historical wealth of Sisal, Yucatan: a destination that combines traditional charm and ecological preservation, with Daniela Parra and Fernando Méndez.
Located on the northwest coast of Yucatan, Sisal is a hidden treasure that captivates with its history and its natural environment. This picturesque port has a fascinating history, from its origins as an important fishing center and exporter of henequen to its recent appointment as a Magical Town in 2020.
However, uncontrolled real estate growth has generated an imbalance in the area, putting its ecological fragility at risk. The presence of clandestine garbage dumps on beaches and mangroves is a threat to the marine and terrestrial life that inhabits these areas.
It is crucial to promote and participate in beach and mangrove cleanups to preserve these unique ecosystems. “Campamentos Tortugueros” works tirelessly to protect sea turtle nests and guarantee their survival.
Furthermore, Sisal is home to a great diversity of species, such as flamingos, crocodiles and many others. Care and respect for these creatures is essential to maintain the balance of biodiversity in the region.
We cannot forget the importance of sustainable fishing in Sisal. It is essential to promote responsible practices that ensure the conservation of marine resources and the subsistence of local communities.
An urgent call: the sheltered port of Sisal is in a difficult situation. It is vital to join efforts to protect it and guarantee its preservation as a historical and tourist heritage.
Explore Sisal, connect with its past and marvel at its natural beauty. Together we can promote responsible and conscious tourism, preserving the cultural heritage and ecological richness of this wonderful place.
