About Amikoo- Dreamworks Riviera Maya

The production company has its sights set on a property just north of Playa for a theme park based on its famous and highly successful animated movies

Dreamworks is coming to the Riviera Maya with plans to open up a Disneyland-style theme park. This project will generate more employment opportunities, increased options for tourists and a strong economic impact.

Jesús Martín Medina, president of the local tourism association, said this project will benefit everyone, but especially tourism aimed at families, which is one of the most important.

“The park will be around 10 hectares in the Punta Maroma zone. It will have villas themed like its most famous characters from movies such as Kung Fu Panda, Penguins of Madagascar, and Shrek and will provide at least 2,000 jobs.”

The well-known animation studio will be working with Mexican investors to develop the project. Martín Medina says these high quality developments will help tourists plan a longer stay in the area and promote economic development.

However, there is still no formal arrangement with the local government to request permissions to build, confirmed Eduardo Morentin Ocejo, general director of Environmental and Urban Planning.

To guarantee the protection of the environment, Guadalupe de la Rosa, president of the environmental organization Moce Yax Cuxtal, reiterated the importance that the developers present documents detailing the environmental impact and the report be made public.

The initial investment will be $800 million USD and will include more than 30 attractions, villas, theaters, restaurants and commercial spaces. The park is estimated to receive at least 4 million visitors during the first four years it is open, and at least half of those visitors in the first 12 months. A later addition of an aquatic park is planned.

Dreamworks is not only a successful production company, it has also worked in the television sector, invested in videogames and most recently began working on its entertainment complexes, becoming a franchise.
