However, many locals and environmentalists were unhappy with the opening of this water park in Cancun. They believe it will cause major damage to the seabed beneath. There is also the fear that it will result in the privatization of Langosta beach.
These concerns led to the inflatable water park being temporarily closed until 15 July. Nonetheless, Wibit Sports has received all the permits and environmental impact assessments needed to install equipment on the beach. The inflatable park is said to be made of a low-impact system designed to leave the seabed and the animal life undisturbed.
Wibit Sports was initially planning to open parks ar 13 different sites in Cancún. However, only four were approved by the federal authority due to environmental concerns. Two will be located at Chac Mool beach and Plaza Forum, while more will open at Playa del Carmen and Tulum.
