   According to personnel with the municipal Tourism Department, there is a problem related to invasion of assigned spaces and a lack of respect among the comisionista agents who are offering tourism services at the Maritime Terminal.
      On Friday, two groups clashed, and staff with the Tourism Department intervened. One of the Tourism Department employees commented, "There would be no problems if they would respect their assigned spaces. However the moment the ferry arrives, they all approach the tourists, attempting to sell them some product or service, and it all becomes a disaster."
    The comisionistas say the situation has gotten worse since the City now allows the taxi drivers to carry out this same activity, since in addition to offering their services, they are selling all kinds of service, which is allegedly not within their authorization, and they don't respect the assigned areas.

The  Orquesta Típica “Tumben K’ai” performed on the Town Square, which consists of 50 students from Chetumal's middle school "Othon P Blanco".

In the first half of the year, Isla Mujeres is experiencing tourism growth of 15 percent, compared to the same period in 2016, according to Mayor Juan Carrillo Soberanis. . He said it is no accident that more visitors are arriving to enjoy our excellent certified beaches and optimal level of safety, which are part of the requirements met to attain the distinction of being a Pueblo Magico.
       The Continental Area of Punta Sam is experiencing an exponential growth of new hotel rooms, where there are 3599 rooms under construction. These include new construction of the Hotel Luxury with 498 rooms; Hotel Riu, with 743; Hotel Gran Palladium, with 753; and Hotel Atelier, with 593.  Hotels undergoing expansion include Hotel Fines with 500 more rooms and Villas del Palmar with 105 additional rooms being built.
    If all the construction is completed by December, that will almost double the current number of rooms to a total of 7683. Regulations in Punta Sam and Isla Mujeres authorize the construction of 27,000 rooms in the next 30 years, if full development is reached at areas including  Playa Mujeres, Paraíso Mujeres, Costa Mujeres and Sololindo
