Demolish ecohotels, destroy the reserve

Here’s another good one for Tulum…while Profepa is considering demolishing a series of small ecohotels along the coast, the nearby biosphere reserve is being wiped out. What can be done here?!

Sian Ka’an’s destruction goes unpunished. While the Reserve is being destroyed, Profepa continues its crusade in Tulum. Constructions within the Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, continue unpunished due to Profepa’s ineffectiveness. Areas of mangrove forest and protected species like the chit palm tree have been wiped out in order to raise concrete masses, with the consent of environmental authorities. Mansions like Casa Palancar, once Casa Rubi, owned by Hollywood actress Yvette Mimieux Montemayor, or Casa David were projects allowed in the protected area. Por Esto.
