GigNet to provide high speed Internet and managed services to Aquaworld marina in Cancun

Cancun, Mexico. 15 August, 2022 – GigNet, a digital infrastructure company with an extensive regional fibre optic broadband network from Costa Mujeres, North of Cancun, through the Hotel Zone of Tulum, announced it has signed an agreement to provide high speed Internet and managed services to Aquaworld marina located in Cancun’s Hotel Zone. Aquaworld claims to be the “Fun Leader” for water activities in Cancun since 1986 and is a 2022 Tripadvisor “Travelers’ Choice” award recipient.

Aquaworld’s main facilities are a marina in the Hotel Zone of Cancun, with the capacity to receive hundreds of boats, wave runners, and aquatic equipment. The facility also features the only pool to teach diving courses and training at the PADI certification level. Popular tours include an Isla Mujeres cruise and snorkeling trip and the “Paradise Subsee” – a cross between a yellow submarine and a glass bottomed boat – found only at Aquaworld, with tours of the Punta Nizuc Reef and the Cancun underwater museum.

“As the ‘Fun Experts’ in Cancun, our Mission is to offer our guests an exciting, entertaining, and safe experience,” says Andrea Orozco, general manager. “Our customers’ experience begins at the Marina before they leave the dock, and this includes allowing them to stay connected to friends and family. Once their adventure begins, capturing the experience in a digital photograph to share and keep for years to come is an important part of the Aquaworld encounter. High-speed Internet helps us deliver this keepsake in a timely, high-quality fashion.”

Mark Carney, OBE and president of GigNet Mexico, comments, “The incredible blue waters of the Caribbean Sea are at the centre of the Cancun travel experience. Whether it is a relaxing and interesting boat tour or an exhilarating hands-on activity, Aquaworld helps travelers of all ages enjoy a water adventure while visiting the Cancun region. Our fibre-optic network and strong Wi-Fi services in the Cancun Hotel Zone help leading businesses such as Aquaworld earn top ratings from clients and from travel websites. The best ocean activities and the best Internet are a powerful combination. Together, Aquaworld and GigNet are a reason Cancun is the best destination in the world for travelers, adventurers, families, conferences, and digital nomads.”
