The Mayor spoke about the moral obligation the Mexicans must assume to honor and remember the men and women who contributed their best efforts to create a nation like ours, with liberties and opportunities; a nation in which, as a society, we enjoy rights and obligations. He said this is not not just a civic tradition, it is a moral obligation. He talked about the lawyer and political insurgent Andrés Quintana Roo, who was born in 1787. It is noted that the Isla Mujeres primary school "Andres Quintana Roo" is the oldest in the state, having opened its doors fifty years ago, and this is the original building and campus, as is noted on a plaque. Several of the mayors who have governed the island went to school there, including the present mayor, Agapito Magana Sanchez.

It has become official that the island will no longer have its own tourism promotional agency, and these responsibilities will be taken over by the Tourism Promotional Agency of the municipality of Benito Juarez (Cancun). This news that Isla Mujeres will no longer have its own direct representation for national and international campaigns was not well accepted among local entrepreneurs, particularly those that have been working with the local Tourism Promotional Agency in recent years. It is anticipated that the owners of the smaller hotels will be the most affected, since they have few resources for promotional campaigns or representation at the various tourism fairs, and even less on an international level. This also affects the diving shops,as well as those who do whale shark tours, who are now responsible for the costs of promotion individually.
