Creation of "Fraternity Isla Mujeres" group

 Crean agrupación “Fraternidad Isla Mujeres”

ISLA MUJERES, 26 de septiembre.-.
  The group “Fraternidad Isla Mujeres”is being formed on the mainland part of the municipality in Rancho Viejo, for more than 600 members of the taxi union "Gustavo Diaz Ordaz". It is intended to help them economically by providing loans and savings accounts; to help them socially by providing health fairs, haircuts, legal and social assistance, and other benefits; and to help the workers and their families politically. 
     The leader of the municipal union, Eduardo Peniche Rodriguez, was a guest at the inauguration of the group and spoke about their close relationship with their counterparts in Cancun and the need to work closely with the people of the community. He noted that the municipality of Isla Mujeres has an area that is five times that of Benito Juarez (Cancun's municipality), giving the residents opportunities for a good life and for growth within the township.

Rain didn't stop tourists from enjoying themselves & touring in golf carts 

Mal tiempo no impidió que intrépidos turistas pasearan en carritos de golf

ISLA MUJERES, 26 de septiembre.- .
   The rains that fell throughout the day on Saturday interrupted the activities of hundreds of tourist who came to the island and caused flooding on several streets, especially Hidalgo avenue, a main shopping area. Many residents and visitors donned rain gear in order to continue with their scheduled activities. Some tourists who came to the island in the morning appeared visibly angry when they asked if the rain was going to continue all day, preventing them for carrying out any activities. However despite the rain, dozens of visitors chose to rent golf cars and tour around the entire island, even though they were drenched when they finished the journey.

“Es importante resaltar que este logro es colectivo y que ciertamente lo encabezó el Ayuntamiento, pero la participación de los hoteleros, restauranteros, cooperativas pesqueras, comerciantes, funcionarios y otros actores de la comunidad, fue fundamental para que a partir de hoy, nuestra Isla Mujeres sea Pueblo Mágico”. Agapito Magaña Sanchez

    Delivery delayed of property titles


    Retrasan entrega de títulos de prediosRetrasan entrega de títulos de predios

    0 27 de septiembre de 2015  By Carlos Gasca

    The meeting that took place yesterday annoyed the members of the Nueva Tierra Association because the delivery of land titles from CORETT (Commission for the Regularization of Land Tenure) is still delayed. Many attendees had traveled to Cancun, after waiting from 10am to 2pm, in crowded conditions which led to general discomfort about the lack of organization, and some chose to leave and reschedule. 
         It appears that the delays resulted from the changes within the CORETT program, due to the changing of the name of the agency that is generating the subsidies for the deeding of the properties. Now the program will be administered under PASPRAH, the Program of Support for Residents Living in Conditions of Poverty to Regularize Irregular Settlements. This change has made it necessary to generate more documentation.

Legislator Edgar Gasca Arceo tweeted that he was accompanied by the Mayor of Isla Mujeres, Agapito Magana Sanches, and his wife, Marthy Vargas for the delivery of wheel chairs (which are specially made for athletes.)

Piece of sculpture fell off
Se caen a pedazos las esculturas urbanas de IM [+] Ver mas
      At the monument to the sea turtles, located at the intersection of Calle Bravo and Guerrero Avenue, along the Caribbean Sea, one of the two turtles has fallen off. The monument was installed six years ago, and lack of maintenance is blamed. There are three species of turtles who visit Isla Mujeres to nest, which are Green, Loggerhead, and Hawksbill, and their eggs are rescued and protected.

Eastern malecon seawalk in semi darkness

   There is a lack of lighting for nearly a kilometer along the eastern malecon, and there is a risk for injuries from the left over bases of the former light poles, which longer exist due to corrosion. There are new lights and posts along the 200 meter stretch near the Casa de Cultura, which were installed last year, by this government. It is suggested that Alderwoman Miriam Trejo Leon, who lives in the area, should bring this issue to the City Council, to request that lighting be installed for the security of the neighborhood and for the benefit of those who use the malecon.

Hi all!! We (Isla Animals) are gearing up for a HUGE Spay/Neuter, Vaccination, Wellness campaign for the animals in Rancho Viejo Nov 17-22. This is a very poor area in the municipality of Isla Mujeres. Most are living without electricity and running water. The situation for the animals there is dire right now with parvo & distemper running rampant, and heavy overpopulation. We expect to treat/vaccinate/spay/neuter 1000 cats & dogs with the cost of surgery at just $10us per dog. This may be the only time any of these animals see a vet. We can treat the existing animals, vaccinate others against disease, curb the population growth, and educate pet owners on proper animal care and make a HUGE DIFFERENCE!! We have the knowledge, experience, volunteers, and heart to make it happen. We are asking for all of your help to raise funds to make the campaign a reality. (We can also accept Paypal donations via our site - just add RANCHO VIEJO in message, and cash in person on Isla Mujeres. Please, please share the link on your social media. It helps us so much. If you are not in a position to donate PLEASE do read the campaign & share, there is lots of excellent info in it about the work we do-There is always so much to do! Thank you for your time!
