ISLA MUJERES, 16 de octubre.-
  Hundreds of fishing and tour boats were unable to work after the port was closed for small boats due to the prevailing weather conditions. The Harbor Master, Ismael Gonzalez Gil, confirmed that the port was closed for small boats since 8pm on Thursday due to waves and wind. This was continued on Friday and is expected to continue on Saturday, since more rain is forecast for this weekend.
      The ferries have continued to run, and there are no plans to cancel the service, although an accident occurred regarding the navigation of one of the ferries on Thursday night due to weather conditions.

From Sally MargolisHi 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!
