CANCÚN — In order to continue positioning Cancun as a world-class destination, with its beaches and natural beauty as its main tourist engine, Pronatura México staff will inspect this week the seven public beaches that have the “Blue Flag” International emblem, in the process of achieving their recertification in July, announced Federal Zone director Manuel Linss de la Peña.
According to a statement, he explained that the staff of this international organization began with the supervision visit of the beaches that currently have this award, in order to verify that they meet the 33 criteria encompassed in four categories, such as environmental information and education; quality of water; environmental management; security, and basic services such as water, sanitation, public areas, cleaning, access to facilitate the entry of swimmers, as well as ramps for people with disabilities, among others.
To that end, he pointed out that two weeks ago the rehabilitation and maintenance works of the facilities started, as well as reforestation actions in the green areas.
The beaches that will be inspected are “Las Perlas”, “Marlín”, “El Niño”, “Coral”, “Ballenas”, “Delfines” and “Chac Mool”. Work is expected to culminate on Thursday, March 30, when the judges will issue the result corresponding to this audit and, if favorable, the recertification will be carried out in July.
He pointed out that for the accomplishment of these works, the municipality of Benito Juárez, through the Management of Zofemat, applied an investment of 400,000 pesos for the rehabilitation and maintenance of all common areas.
Manuel Linss said that these actions make it possible for public areas to be in optimal conditions for the massive arrival of visitors, due to the entry of the holiday period of Easter, for which there is a workforce of 110 people assigned to this area.
Finally, Manuel Linss estimated that the arrival of thousands of tourists is expected for this coming season, reaching figures similar to those obtained during the holiday period of last December where “Playa Ballenas” was the most crowded since it recorded the arrival of more than 2,500 visitors per day.
