President Fox congratulated Cozumel Islanders once again on their speedy recovery after Hurricane Wilma passed last October. He described the recovery as "a triumph of collective determination over adversity" that set an example for other Mexicans.

More than 50 million pesos ($4.7 million) has been spent on reconstructing the pier and its buildings, footways and security systems. The pier is now ready to dock two ships alongside and can receive a greater number of passengers than before.
