In the Mayor's speech he said, "Today we send a message to the entire world: Isla Mujeres is more beautiful than ever, whose of us who live here have been given the responsibility to respect, care for, protect and love it as the cuna/cradle it is." 
    Awards were given to the descendents of founders and the Tourism Merit award and Citizenship Merit award were given, with the names listed in the article. A Distinguished Guest award was given to the Ambassador of the Republic of Ukraine, and awards were given to the members of the Committee for Twinning of Mission Texas and of the Sister Cities Association of America.

ISLA MUJERES, 17 de agosto.-
     A very moving Mass was celebrated in the Isla Mujeres Bay on Monday morning commemorating the 21st anniversary of the immersion of the Cruz de la Bahia on the occasion of the anniversary of the founding of the town of Dolores, now Isla Mujeres. Dozens of Catholics participated aboard the ferry "Sergio Aguilar Gracia" for the Mass which was officiated by Raul Sanchez Alonso, and there were a least a half dozen small boats.  Before the event, there was a procession from the church of the Immaculate Conception, and the boats departed around 10am. There were divers laying a wreath under the sea, while one was placed on the waters above.
   The Cross is a wrought iron sculpture that weighs more than 10 tons, which is now covered in coral and is visited daily by hundreds of domestic and foreign tourists.

On Monday morning, mayor Agapito Magana Sanchez led one of the traditions most representative of Isla Mujeres, offering a wreath at the Cross in the Bay, celebrating 21 years of immersion.

Options for renovation of dock and kitchen
Maquetas para renovar muelle y cocinaVer mas

Now that SEMARNAT has ruled and the Isla Blanca cooperative have recovered their entire area in the Federal Zone, there are plans to renovate the dock and the area of the kitchen to rent (para arrendar). It would cost an estimated 10 million pesos to renovate the pier, including a palapa to rent and to incorporate this into part of the construction 'en tierra' (on land) in order to function as a restaurant.
