CANCUN, Q. Roo — “Playa Corales” beach , better known as “Mirador II”, stands as the only candidate in all Latin America to be granted with official “Pet Friendly” service and seeking the “Blue Flag” certification.
The Blue Flag is a certification by the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE) that a beach, marina or sustainable boating tourism operator meets its stringent standards.
“Playa Corales has a good chance to obtain this important certification, and this will be an extra feature that will attract the attention of tourists,” said Jose Eduardo Mariscal de la Selva, director of the Federal Maritime Terrestrial Zone (Zona federal marítima terrestre).
This year, Quintana Roo aims to have 10 blue flags out of 27 candidates in the whole country.
However, Benito Juarez municipality continues as the leader to collect the largest number of certified beaches, as currently there are six: Corales, Ballenas, Marlin, Chac Mool, La Perla y Delfines. These sites must go through a recertification process, because this award is granted annually.
The fact that Corales beach is “Pet Friendly” gives it a plus and this is one of the reasons why it was selected.
Area for pets
As part of the strategy, an area for pets has been contemplated, where games will be included.
For this service, the municipality will create an exclusive regulation for the owners while visiting the site with their pets, besides the hours will be from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. This beach is currently under an adaptation process in order to provide an adequate space for visitors and their pets.
Animal and Plant Inspection Department at the Cancun International Airport reported that more than eight thousand tourists choose to travel with their pets each year , especially dogs and cats.
The sectors that support the Pet Friendly code are increasing in the state of Quintana Roo, as more and more sites are offering people the chance to enter their premises accompanied by their pets, either at recreational centers, parks, beaches, restaurants, cafes and hotels.
