CANCUN – Federal Maritime officials are reminding Cancun beachgoers not to give money for use of the facilities at Playa Delfines and other public beaches.
José Eduardo Mariscal de la Selva, director of the Federal Maritime Zone (Zofemat), says they have received complaints of people being asked for money in exchange for umbrella and chair use.
The facilities at Playa Delfines are free to everyone. If people are being approached and asked for money to use the free facilities, they need to report it to the lifeguard or security who will pass the complaint to Zofemat.
Hotel beach clubs and other concessions along Cancun beaches are permitted to rent chairs and umbrellas to patrons, but only for a set amount. All blue flag beaches in Cancun offer free facilities.
There are 100 umbrellas and 200 chairs distributed among the blue flag beaches for free beachgoer use. Cancun beaches where chair and umbrella use is free include Playa Delfines, Playa Del Niño, Marlín, Chac Mool, Las Perlas, Coral and Ballenas.
The director says many people are confused as to which chairs are free and which need to be paid for. He explains to understand the difference, chairs and umbrellas with the City Council logo are free because the city sponsors them.
Mariscal de la Selva says, “We are against people asking for money. It is unacceptable that employees want to abuse the visitors because these employees are paid to perform certain work, not to collect”.
