ISLA MUJERES, 2 noviembre.-Leer más...
The Mayor met with the assistant Director of the INAH in Cancun, Carlos Esperon yesterday to discuss several issues relating to the cultural heritage of the municipality, both on the island and in the Continental Zone. This includes the church at Boca Iglesias which is the site of the first Mass in Mexico said Spanish, building from colonial times, and buildings from pre-Hispanic times. There is tourism potential and it is noted that in a few months construction of large hotels will begin on the mainland area of Isla Mujeres, which will house thousands of tourists yearly, hence the importance of this meeting with the INAH. The mayor spoke about his support for culture and history, and talked about the importance of these projects and keeping our island cultural identity intact between the generations before us and the next generations. Also attending the meeting was Fidel Villanueva, who is a lifetime historian of Isla Mujeres, and archeologists Luis Leyra and Enrique Terrones.

Tragedy at "El Farito"
Muerte0 02 de noviembre de 2013
Por Carlos Gasca-Quequi.- A tourist from New York died while swimming near the little lighthouse & islet known as "El Farito" located about 500 meters offshore from the wooden municipal pier. She had been aboard the boat "Lupita" of the coop "Adolfo Lopez Mateos" and was snorkeling, when she had cardiac problems. Little could be done to revive Ann H Rawlings, 56, who was traveling with a friend. Her body was taken to the island, where Red Cross paramedics arrived, but she was deceased. The body was taken to Cancun for an autopsy and corresponding procedures.
Good response from Islanders

The incident occurred around 1pm, when the 56 year old tourist was snorkeling the reef near El Farito and apparently suffered a heart attack. The boaters noted the subject had drowned and immediately rescued her, pulling her from the water and giving her first aid, but to no avail and there was no response. At press time no other details were known, and the body was being taken to the Medical Examiners for autopsy, as required by law. The PGJE, Attorney General's office attested to the facts and will file the relevant report. No family members were present. Paramedics from a private clinic were present, but unable do anything since the body arrived with no vital signs, and they stated that a heart attack may have been the cause of death.
