According to the municipal Tourism agency, the Isla Mujeres Hotel Association (HIM) has an occupancy rate of 36% while other hotels reported a rate of 40%, with an increase over the weekend, when it reached 50% . There is a lack of reservations for August, but in the winter season there are visitors who return annually. And every year there are thousands of visitors who come for the day to picnic on the beautiful, tranquil beaches, hence the importance of promoting the various attractions of this destination where people can have a fun vacation in total security.

Fri-Sun June 21-23: Whale Shark Festival See below for events
Sat & Sun June 22 & 23 : Super Full Moon (6:50, 7:50, & ~hour later nightly)
Summer Solstice is the longest day of the year. BTW the serpent shadow moving on the steps of Chichen Itza occurs with the Equinoxes.
Super Moon of June: The biggest brightest moon of the year
This year the Supermoon will be up to 14% larger and 30% brighter than a typical Full Moon is. This is a result of the Moon reaching its perigree — the closest that it gets to the Earth during the course of its orbit. During perigree on June 23 the Moon will be “only” about 221,824 miles away, as compared to the 252,581 miles away that it is at its furthest distance from the Earth (apogee). Source link

Both blogs always have links to the original articles.
Usually if there is a headline, but no translation, it was probably published in another paper recently, and the information was translated.in a previous post, usually in the past couple days.
