 Maintenance and cleaning work were done at the Green sports dome in colonia Salina Chica by the municipal Department of Sports & Physical Culture.

 About 50 young islanders and municipal officials participated in the webinar via Zoom entitled "Young Successes" (“Éxito Joven”) featuring radio personality Alex Yáñez, who shared his success stories and urged the participants to keep working toward fulfilling their dreams.


The DIF social service agency says if you are 60 years of age or older, you are invited to send a non-vulnerable family member, such as a child or grandchild, to the Senior Citizens (Adulto Mayor) facility between 10a and 2p, Monday thru Friday, with your documentation to obtain an INAPAM card (see graphic). The card will be delivered to your home by a DIF staff member. (This card allows seniors to take advantage of discounts on transportation & other benefits.)

 TVIM reports that the CFE (Federal Electrical Commission) began installing a 10 MVA (Mega Volt Amperes) transformer on Friday morning, to replace a 3 MVA transformer. The CFE workers said this new equipment aims to guarantee adequate energy capacity in Isla Mujeres, where the number of hotels and businesses are growing. The team arrived on the island a couple days ago, and the maneuvers with forklifts and cranes began on Friday, which caused the closure of streets during the early hours of the morning. The CFE officials said the equipment weighs about 20 tons. The work will take several more days, with the process of installation and connection to begin after the current work of placement is completed. (photos) LINK

Turtles continue hatching out at the Tortugranja in November

The mamas nest along the eastern beaches from May thru October. Tortugranja staff and volunteers gather the eggs and incubate them in the sand in a pen outside the facility. Three species nest annually in Isla Mujeres, Greens, Loggerheads, and Hawksbills.  Photos of nest hatching out at MaraVilla Caribe Bed & Beach, that was missed by the Tortugranja patrols, by Bruce.
