  Isla Mujeres is being represented at World Travel Market convention in London.  LINK  

Five individual municipalities, including Isla Mujeres, once had their own promotional departments, which were eliminated, and there have been some objections. The state Secretary of Tourism spoke about the advantages of the new system, which allows each destination to have its own  'brand', while allowing savings and 'verticalization'.
  Isla Mujeres was present at the World Travel Market Tourism convention in London, where the official made his remarks.

 About 20-25 guilds are expected to participate in the annual festivities in honor the town's patron saint, Our Lady of Immaculate Conception, which will take place Nov. 28-Dec. 8, with events taking place on the premises of each of the guilds, as well as downtown at the church. The specifics will soon be announced. This is an opportunity to respect traditions while spreading the Catholic faith.

Everything is ready for the Diabetic Clinic  

Todo listo para atender a diab├ęticos

  Everything is ready for the free Diabetic Clinic to be held tomorrow, Wednesday, at the CAVI (Center for Support in Domestic Violence) facility, in colonia La Gloria. Registration begins at 7am, and the clinic takes place from 9a to noon. The clinic is provided by the civil organization "Club Pro-Paciente Diab├ętico” , (with cooperation from the City, providing facilities and equipment. For glucose testing, you should avoid eating or drinking, except water, after midnight.)
   Health professionals will provide glucose testing and distribute glucometers and supplies, as well as offering education about nutrition and managing diabetes. Attendees will be taught to use the meters (and reading glasses will be distributed). Those who already have meters are asked to bring them in to receive more supplies (strips and lancets).
  The clinic is completely free, financed by the generosity of people who live on the island or visit and residents are encouraged to share this information with their families, friends, neighbors, and coworkers, said one of the organizers, Karen Rosenberg.

Merchants at the downtown Mercado also want increased security  

Piden vigilar mercado municipal

 A week after the Police casita was reactivated at the Mercado in colonia Canotal, the tenants of the downtown Mercado are requesting increased nighttime surveillance also. They haven't been having burglaries, tho someone tried to open the back doors, unsuccessfully. At the Canotal Mercado, there had been two burglaries, and as a result the abandoned police booth at the side of the building was renovated and staffed at night, monitoring the market and the surrounding streets in the colonia.

Another victory for the Isla Mujeres Cahuameros

Cahuameros con paso perfecto en Liga Mayor

  The Isla Mujeres Cahuameros remain undefeated so far this season in the Major Basketball League, following their two victories over the Chetumal Manaties, giving them a total of four wins. Their next rival will be the champion team, the Dorados of Playa del Carmen. The Dorados and the Universidad Modelo team of Merida both have two wins apiece. The bottom is shared by the Manaties and the Islenos of Cozumel, who both have zero victories this season.
   The game was held in Chetumal and Saturday night's score was 105 to 74 while Sunday's was 95 to 66.
