For 15 years, the Historic Center of the Yucatecan capital has been changing from being a residential area to being a commercial area and housing for foreigners, where noise pollution is a reality, and the authorities have already detected the noisiest areas in Mérida, and most of them are located in downtown.

The Mérida City Council already has a regulation to avoid noise and seeks to comply with it, from January to date it has carried out 106 verifications of excessive noise reports.

Likewise, 56 visits and 16 suspensions have been generated between workshops, restaurants, bars, etc., in various parts of the city.

The reports arrive on “Citizen Wednesdays” or by Ayuntatel and are dealt with in a maximum time of 15 days.

It should be noted that any establishment that violates the limit established by the Official Mexican Standard could receive sanctions such as the temporary suspension of activities or a fine ranging from 27,000 to 150,000 pesos, depending on the degree of recidivism.
