Session suspended for council members

Most of the City Council members did not attend a meeting on Tuesday because the advance notification procedure did not take place and they were unaware of the content of the program for the government changeover. The meeting between the Mayor and the Mayor elect that was to follow on Wednesday was cancelled. The meeting of Council members has been rescheduled for Thursday at 10am. Councilman Julio Osorio said the lack of attendance was not an attempt to pressure the mayor regarding payment of salary bonuses, and was due to the lack of notification and lack of awareness about content.

Aguakan assurances:  Operating at 100%

    0 17 de julio de 2013

    Por Carlos Gasca.-

  • The manager of Aguakan denied that there is any problem or that there is work going on in the hydraulic system that is reducing pressure in the pipes of customers in Isla Mujeres.  He said they are operating at 100 percent, and providing assistance this holiday season by having water pumping at each one of the strategic points of the isle.
        "We have personally reviewed this, and the water is flowing with good pressure. If there are some cases where it is not reaching the second or third story, then this is some other, individual problem."  He extended an invitation to each of the users to report their problem so they can verify the complaint, because otherwise it will be impossible to determine the cause.
          The local office manager emphasized that service is guaranteed throughout the island and more so now during the holiday season.   Regarding the amount of pressure currently in the pipes, he said there is more than a kilogram of pressure and to increase it could damage pipes.

Golf Cart Runs Wild

Carrito de golf se desboca+] Ver mas
Foreign tourists Jason and Ross Schneid were uninjured when they lost control of their golf cart and ran into a parked truck yesterday. The accident occurred around 2:30 pm when they were on the main street of Rueda Medina, in front of the Naval base. There was minor damage to both the cart, which was #18 from GoMar, and the red Dakota truck.. The tourists were frightened, so witnesses called Red Cross paramedics, who arrived immediately. The foreigners were unhurt. Staff from the rental shop arrived, as well as the police, who reviewed everyone's documentation and moved the vehicles to the impound yard while responsibilities and settlements between the victims are being determined. When you rent a golf cart with insurance, that insurance is generally for liability, so therefore addresses damages caused to other parties, and not damages to your cart.

Bus tours arriving

Llegando el turismo de circuito [+] Ver mas

The president of the Chamber of Commerce, Juan Carrillo says with the summer holidays, the number of tourists arriving in Isla Mujeres has increased by 30 percent. He said those benefiting the most are the souvenir shops and boaters. He said the restaurants don't benefit when people are on all inclusive packages. He commented about the economic benefits of bus tours, which are characterized by having patrons who bring their whole families. He said they usually travel for 5 to 7 days, visiting different locations such as Chichen Itza, Playa del Carmen, Bacalar, and Isla Mujeres.

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 usually start around the end of July & are 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.

The Super full moon will be rising over the Caribbean at ~6:30 on Sunday and about an hour later nightly link

Susan Bienvenuposted toIsla Mujeres Scholarship GroupHola a todos. I just posted a picture of Fabi, who is attending high school here in Isla mujeres. One of her sponsors had to stop this year and we are needing a sponsor for Fabi's high school costs for the year. We need someone who can contribute $25.00/month for the year, preferably in one payment of $300.00.her older sister, Sugely, just graduated from college after going through the scholarship program. Fabiola is a wonderful person and student. Her family is very special and have become part of my family after the seven years that we have been involved. Knowing them and being part of their lives has been one of the greatest gifts that we have known and makes our trips to Isla even more meaningful and special.If anyone is interested, please email me at and thank you
Daily Update: I love this girl. She lives in the Guatalupana. She’s tied up 24/7 but she’s well fed and we had her spayed and we go by all the time and give her tons of loving. This picture is the best. I’m actually cleaning her ears. Look at her face, doesn’t she look like she’s in heaven. These dogs are amazing. She greets us with a total body wag and loves everything that we do for her. Doug and Eileen built her a better dog shelter and we make sure that she gets tick and flea meds, de-worming and most things that she needs. I say most because what she needs more than anything is some “free” time. I’m heading back to Mexico on Monday and can’t wait to visit her. I’m sure she’ll need another ear cleaning by now. I’m also sure that the neighbors think that we’re crazy - cleaning someone else’s dogs ears? I’m also taking a suitcase full of supplies down. Wow, the sorting has begun. I swear I spend my life sorting and counting. The supplies that are donated to Isla Animals make a huge difference.

Potential To Radically Reduce Dengue Worldwide
Last month, results were released from research done in Brazil that reduced the population of the mosquito that causes dengue by 96%.  This was done by releasing sterilized male mosquitoes. The company behind it, Moscamed, is starting more trials this month. Read more about it HERE. Photo by CDC
