IGY Marinas announces the welcoming of the newest addition to its international network of marinas, La Amada Marina in Cancun, Mexico.

The marina lies within one of the most exclusive and private communities in the region, and is located just minutes from the world’s second largest coral reef and an abundance of sport fish and sea life. La Amada is just a 10-minute drive from the center of Cancun with many restaurants, bars, clubs and nearby golf courses.
