Planeta.com is announcing a major revision to the popular online guide to Cancún.

One of the goals this year is a complete revision of the Yucatán Guide, one of the most popular sections on the site. "We are launching the Cancún Wiki to provide real-time coverage of the events. This will help us greatly as we relaunch our Cancún City Guide as well as the essay on the history of Cancún," said Planeta.com founder Ron Mader.

Exploring responsible tourism in Cancún will be the focal point of a city tour scheduled for October 17 organized by Ecocolors. Participants are encouraged to reserve a room at the Hotel Rey del Caribe.

"In October we are participating in the Responsible Tourism Conference that takes place in neighboring Belize.As the travel hub of the region, Cancún is of particular interest as we review how mass tourism can be more hospitable for everyone," said Mader.

INDIGENOUS PEOPLES

The Maya people live in Mexico and Central America. To help travelers better understand the region and its people, Planeta.com is hosting the Maya Wiki with updates, RSS feeds and links to relevant Web 2.0 sites. Maya-owned tourism operations are encouraged to apply for the Indigenous Tourism and Biodiversity Website Award.

ECO URBAN

Planeta.com reviews ways in which urban tourism can be more ecological and brainstorm about alternatives to urban sprawl. As proposed in our review of City Environments, we encourage cities to show us how they serve as gateways to parks, protected areas and rural communities. The spotlight on Cancún is similar to issues faced in other megatourism destinations, including Queenstown, New Zealand and Las Vegas, Nevada.
