The municipal president of Progreso, José Isabel Cortés Góngora said that the holiday season in the port of Progreso and its surrounding communities, such as Chelem, Yucalpetén, Chicxulub, or Uaymitún has been very good so far this summer, and that he expects that there are no setbacks due to the effects of nature that put the holidays at risk.
In regard to the rumors of presence of red tide detected by fishermen on the west coast; the mayor said he does not have any official information about the presence of spots that could end the holiday season in advance.
He pointed out that on Sunday 22, there were thousands of people enjoying the beaches of the Progreso Municipality, and that the “best of the season is yet to come”, during the final week of July and the first three weeks of August.
Cortés Góngora acknowledged that the summer holidays bring significant benefits to the local economy, including restaurants, bars, artisans, massageurs, shops and providers of tourist services, hoteliers, and of course the merchants at the municipal markets.
He stressed that the fishermen of Progreso are already preparing for the upoming fishing season of octopus, which is one of the most important fisheries of the year, hoping that there really is no red tide that would collapse the lobster and mollusc catch.
