New 'Luxury Marina Complex'

 

Work started on the construction of a new 'luxury marina complex' in Cozumel earlier this month.

The Mexican Secretary for Tourism, Rodolfo Elizondo Torres, and the head of the National Fund for Tourism Promotion, Miguel Gómez Mont, visited the island to lay the first stone.

The project, called Marina Cozumel, will have space for 330 boats, hotels, residential properties, shops, a pier, pathes, cycle ways and public spaces.

Mexicans remembered the Battle of Puebla last week, on May 5th.

Celebrated widely by Mexicans in the United States, the day is not an obligatory federal holiday in Mexico, but voluntary.
