Arturo Delfín, the organizer of the International Photography Contest "Ramon Bravo", encouraged entrepreneurs and municipal authorities to support the event, and to avoid a repeat of last year when it was unexpectedly cancelled due to a lack of municipal resources. It was previously held in October. He encouraged business owners to take responsibility for supporting this event, which commemorates Ramon Bravo, an important conservationist, who is well known outside the country and whose memory should be taught to the new generations.

The Mayor-elect Agapito Magana instructed party workers to remove political campaign materials immediately, to preserve an image of cleanliness, order, and respect for the electoral law. Although the law allows 30 days after the election for the political parties to remove of these materials, PRI members have begun taking them down. The election was held Sunday, and the politician noted the materials no longer serve any purpose and now represent a negative image.

 Always plenty to eat! I generally order Ropa Vieja, which most of the others had also. It is made with shredded beef, onions & green peppers. Also on the plate are salad, fried plantains, a sauteed platano macho (banana), rice & beans, and yucca. It was all very tasty!

Critter events...
It is currently the season for swimming with the whale sharks, and turtles are mating offshore & nesting on the eastern beaches. The mating is visible by day, especially off Punta Sur, the South Point. The nesting happens in the wee hours, and there are Tortugranja personnel, volunteers, and Naval staff monitoring the beaches to prevent people from disrupting them, and to gather and transport the eggs for incubation.
       By far, most of the turtles nesting in Isla Mujeres are Green turtles (called Blancas in Spanish), and the second most common are the huge Loggerheads, and there are some Hawksbills.  The Green turtles take ~60 days to hatch and the hatchlings are released by the public at events at dusk on Media Luna or Guadalupana beaches. The releases will begin in about a month & be held periodically until early October.
    Lately the water has been very calm and there have been many manta rays, with many swimming upside down, in addition to many whale sharks. Offshore from MVC, we have been seeing dolphins & turtles from the balcony, and lotsa big fish while snorkeling. 

 There are small red crabs that migrate to & from the sea in July, watch out for them at night on the coastal road at the southeastern part of the isle.
  Lobster season began July 1 and continues until the end of February.

Isla Mujeres, Quintana Roo.- La dirección municipal de Obras Públicas informó que ya se cuenta con un 98 por ciento de avance en las obras de repavimentación de las colonias populares de Isla Mujeres, así como la ampliación de la avenida Paseo de los Peces y la carretera Sac-Bajo. Oscar Noé Gómez Martínez, titular de la dependencia, destacó que con una inversión total de 25 millones de pesos, se llevaron a cabo los trabajos de atención y remodelación de calles y avenidas así como la zona de Sac-Bajo.

Explicó que estos 25 millones de pesos se enfocaron a tres acciones, la primera fue la atención de calles en las diferentes colonias populares de la localidad, después se construyó l...a avenida Paseo de los Peces con cuatro carriles, y por último, la atención a la carretera de Sac-Bajo, todas ellas ubicadas en la ínsula. Es importante mencionar que los trabajos benefician a toda la población, ya que se repavimentaron casi en su totalidad las carreteras y avenidas de la isla, con lo que se ofrece una mejor imagen del municipio tanto para turistas como para locales. En este sentido, Gómez Martínez indicó que aunado a los trabajos de repavimentación, en la avenida Sac-Bajo también se construyeron 4 kilómetros de guarniciones y banquetas, además de que toda la avenida Paseo de los Peces también cuenta con sus guarniciones y banquetas. Cabe recordar que la avenida de cuatro carriles servirá como acceso para el hospital de segundo nivel, para el Servicio Médico Forense (SEMEFO) y el Cementerio, entre otros servicios que se encuentran en las cercanías como la Cruz Roja. De igual forma, expresó que se abrieron nuevos accesos carreteros en colonias como la Electricistas, en la que se encontraban dichas brechas de terracería que fueron pavimentadas para el uso de los habitantes de estas zonas del municipio. Para finalizar, mencionó que se encuentran concluyendo los últimos detalles de las avenidas Paseo de los Peces y Sac-Bajo, para dar por finalizados estos trabajos que ofrecen mejores vías de transporte y acceso a las diversas zonas del municipio.See More

Isla Mujeres, Quintana Roo. - The Municipal Public Works reported that already has a 98 percent improvement in the resurfacing of the neighborhoods of Isla Mujeres, and the extension of Paseo Fish and Sac-Bajo road. Noah Oscar Gomez Martinez, head of the agency, said that with a total investment of 25 million pesos, were carried out care work and remodeling of streets and avenues and the Sac-Bajo area. He explained that these works was given the solution to the problem of potholes affecting several colonies of the town, such as the Gloria, Electricians, Meteorological, Charity and Caribbean, in which all roads repaved. He explained that these 25 million focused on three measures, the first was the attention of streets in different neighborhoods of the town, then built the Fish Paseo with four lanes, and finally, attention to the Sac-Bajo road, all located on the island. It is noteworthy that the work benefits the entire population, as it almost completely repaved roads and avenues of the island, which provides a better image of the city for tourists and locals. In this sense, Gómez Martínez said coupled with resurfacing work on Avenue Sac-Bajo also built four miles of curbs and sidewalks, as well as the entire Fish Paseo also has its curbs and sidewalks. Recall that the four-lane avenue serve as access to the secondary hospital for the Medical Examiner (SEMEFO) and Cemetery, among other services that are in the vicinity as the Red Cross. Similarly, said opening new road access in colonies as Electricians, where these gaps were dirt that were paved for the use of the inhabitants of these areas of the municipality. Finally, he mentioned that they are finalizing the last details of the avenues Paseo Fish and Sac-Bajo, to terminate these jobs that offer better transport links and access to the various areas of the municipality.
