 Like every year in this summer holiday period, 70 percent of the tourists who come to this destination are of domestic origin and 30 percent come from the United States and Canada. The municipal tourism director,  Isaac Sulu Martinez, explained that Isla Mujeres is a classic traditional destination for residents of Mexico City and surrounding states, as well as for the neighboring state of Yucatán, whose residents arrive en masse to enjoy the beaches and other attractions. A majority of of them are picnickers. The island benefits from the foreign tourists who come to swim with the whale sharks, but to a lesser degree because many businesses attract customers via social networks and depart from Punta Sam, on the mainland. At this time the turtles are nesting on the beaches and spawning, and overnight tourists have the possibility of watching these natural wonders and unforgettable experiences. In the months of July and August, according to annual reports, hotel occupancy barely reaches 50 to 60 percent, which it is expected to reach during this time which is recognized as a low season.
 Agapito won with 5300 votes and Carrillo with 9690 votes
According to preliminary figures:  Tomorrow the validity of the election by the majority will be presented to members City Government 

Agapito gana con 5 mil 3 votos: Carrillo con 9 mil 690 sufragios

    Urged to remove election propaganda

    Exhortan a retirar propaganda electoral 0 09 de julio de 2013

    Por Carlos Gasca.


    The Secretary General of the City Council called on the political parties to comply with the agreed upon guidelines of the Electoral Institute of Quintana Roo (IEQRoo) and remove political propaganda from the public roadways. He will meet with their representatives to encourage them to comply. If they do not act responsibly and accordingly, the city will remove the banners, signs, and placards, whose visual pollution is not pleasant for visitors at this tourist destination. In the past the cleanup was done approximately 24 hours after the election. Then the NGO "Amigos de Isla Contoy" recycled the materials, and it is hoped that will happen again this time, which is independent of the fact that citizens use them to cover items such as vehicles (There is already a golf cart with a campaign sign as its roof). In the case of the NGO, the recycled materials are sold to tourists as handbags at small businesses, which has been very successful.

Decreased production and demand for lobster
Baja la producción y demanda de langosta[+] Ver mas
Fishermen report a slow start at 9 days into the lobster season, citing low demand and weather that stirred up the sea, causing some poor fishing conditions. Since the season began the Social Justicial cooperative has harvested a ton of live lobsters and 300 kilos of lobster tails. The minimum price for live lobster is between 200 and 220 per kilo and 400 pesos per kilo of lobster tail.Demand is expected to improve, and the fishermen are hoping for consistently good weather with the start of the summer holiday tourism season. Using an exchange rate of 12.5, 400 pesos is $32usd, which is $14.50/lb for fresh lobster tails. Live lobster costs about half that much.

Considerable rebound of tourism

Inicia repunte turístico considerable[+] Ver mas

The head of the Chamber of Commerce (CANACO), Juan Carrillo Figueroa said tourism has increased significantly and he estimates that hotel occupancy is at 70 percent. He expects it to increase to 80 percent at the end of the month. He said the island does not benefit significantly from increased domestic holiday tourism because many people stay at hotels in Cancun and visit for the day, and therefore the best season for the municipality is in December. He said national tourists seek a destination like Cancun that includes shopping malls, theaters, clubs, and services not found in Isla Mujeres, which is known as a destination for relaxation, where people come to enjoy the beaches. He said, "This is one of the strongest seasons we have, but without a doubt, in December we do better."
