icardo del Valle Prieto, secretary general of the Association of Bars and Clubs, said the new casino project would have a positive impact on the local entertainment industry as it will draw more attention to the Riviera Maya and will also help boost the economy.

However, opponents of the casino development said the project may affect the "essence" of the local industry focused on gastronomy and the Mayan Culture.

"This type of business does not go with the essence of the destination, which is sun, beach gastronomy and Mayan culture. Fun and play in all its aspects should not be the only attraction of our destination, we have much more to offer, "said Andrea Lotito, vice president of the Riviera Maya Hotel Association.
