Improvements with Pueblo Magico designation


Mejorará como Pueblo Mágico

0 01 de octubre de 2015  By Carlos Gasca

 The Mayor, Agapito Magana Sanchez said that they are awaiting the manual about the operation of the Pueblo Magico program, which will give access to an improved image, promotion, and funds, as will as transforming infrastructure and services. 
      When a tourism location is included in the Pueblo Magico federal program, there are various benefits including state and federal funds, in addition to public works done at no cost. He said that for this transformation and the success of this project, the participation of the private sector is necessary.
    He said that in Quintana Roo, there are now three municipalities with this distinction, with Tulum and Bacalar receiving the benefits of this federal program. He did not mention specifics about the benefits to Isla Mujeres, but he said there will be an important change, because they are obligated to resuming the underground wiring project downtown, which has been not been completed on some of the streets.

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!
