Businesses: To tighten their belts more
0 06 de octubre de 2013
Por Carlos Gasca > Quequi.-
The leader of the Chamber of Commerce in Isla Mujeres, Juan Carrillo Figueroa said this slump occurs every year, and owners cope by having agreements with workers for 'solidarity days' of volunteer vacations so the employer does not have to fire workers. Some businesses close temporarily and make improvements. He noted that it is still hurricane season and it is unknown if there will be severe weather before it ends, and that everyone should be prepared.

In October there are releases of baby turtles that were incubated at the Tortugranja, at dusk on the eastern beaches of Media Luna or Guadalupana. The Blue Crabs migrate with the full moons, and there are usually organized groups to help them safely across the roads. Watch out for them in Sac Bajo and along the southeastern part of the island. The American holiday of Halloween is observed by the expats & a few candy loving kids, while the whole community observes Day of the Dead on November 1st & 2nd. Special foods are available in the weeks before, and Hanal Pixan altars appear in mid or late October.
October is Breast Cancer Month. There are usually benefits and events, including by Siempre por Vida. The Artist's fair will be the third Thursday in October due to the change of government & will resume being the first Thursday in November.
