ISLA MUJERES, Q.Roo — A new bungalow project for Isla Mujeres has been approved by one government body and rejected by another.
A new Bungalows Reef Club project, initiated by Creative Circle Villahermosa, S.A. de C.V., was given permission to move ahead with construction by the director general of Urban Development, José Nivardo Fernández Martínez. The project would see the construction of cabanas built in the waters at Playa Norte, one of the most utilized beach areas on the island.
However Isla Mujeres mayor, Juan Carrillo Soberanis, says that not only does the project go against the wishes of the population, the license for construction of the cabanas was granted on September 20, 2016, nine days before the state’s government changeover.
The island’s mayor expressed his concerns, saying, “I am on the side of the law but will not allow projects that do not comply with existing laws and regulations such as the construction of “cottages” on Playa Norte…These permits were flawed in its conception, are invalid and will be revoked.”
The bungalows are to be constructed in the vicinity of Hotel MIA at Playa Norte with an estimated investment of 18 million peso.
Last month, 30 sea bungalows were unveiled in the Riviera Maya as part of an expansion project by El Darado Maramo near Playa del Carmen.
