Vandals damage tourist photo sign in Isla Mujeres

“Vandals destroyed the photo backdrop located at the tourist corridor of Isla Mujeres in the east end of the malecón,” informed the municipal government.

In this regard, the director of the municipal tourism office, José Castillo Magaña, said that one of the letters of the touristic ornamental sign of “Isla Mujeres” was detached from its base.

Faced with this situation, he asked the citizens to report any vandalism against the islanders’ heritage, in order to avoid repeating this type of acts that affect the image of this tourist destination.

He said that the tourist police are safeguarding this point now, while the work is carried out for its rehabilitation so the missing letter can be replaced as soon as possible.

Castillo Magaña, reiterated that the island’s municipal government is committed  to consolidate Isla Mujeres as a world-class tourist destination and therefore will continue working with the continuous improvement of this important town, that has the recognition of “Magical Town” (Pueblo Magico).
