Storm drains: Road Hazard
Infraestructura0 13 de octubre de 2013 There have been delays in the final stage of the renovation of the main street downtown, Rueda Medina, which is being done by the company Edificación y Vivienda, who are awaiting state resources. The final stage is the moving of the streetlights and electric wires underground. With the passage of years and the delay in construction, the drain grates have begun to break, so this part of the road has been cordoned off.

.In October there are occasional releases of baby turtles that were incubated at the Tortugranja, at dusk on the eastern beaches of Media Luna or Guadalupana. (Last year the last public release was Oct. 7). 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. The Orianid meteor shower due on the 18th & 19th will be affected by light from the full moon.
