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.

Great Local Grub

FEATURE: There it was, parked on the side of the cobblestone street just off the downtown square of Cozumel.

Nearly camouflaged by hordes of passing tourists carrying bags stuffed with tacky puca shell necklaces and coconut heads, and gigantic fluorescent sombreros hanging from their necks

'5 De Mayo' Remembered

 

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

The 5 de Mayo marks the defeat of the French army in the Mexican city of Puebla in 1862.

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