Isla Mujeres History on Facebook & Website  

 The first civic ceremony honoring Mexico's flag was held last Monday at the primary school "Julio Sauri Espinoza". These monthly civic events were suspended for the past two years due to the pandemic.

Families enjoying Isla's beaches last Sunday, on Family Day.

Police operation "Cuidando a las familias" / Taking care of the families with foot patrols on the main downtown beaches to ensure order and to be available for any incidents that arise between islander families and tourists while Dia de la Family was being celebrated on Sunday.

 Last weekend, speed bumps and crosswalks around the isle got a fresh coat of paint. 

 Last Sunday, Islander families enjoyed spending time together and exercising during this skating-biking event organized by DIF Isla Mujeres (social service agency) for Dia de la Familia.

 On Tuesday, municipal police on the mainland part of the Isla Mujeres assisted three undocumented Cubans who had arrived in a small boat near the Palladium Hotel beach.  It was around 8:45am, after the police had received notification of the three men walking along the beach thru the emergency number. They believed the men had characteristics of Cuban refugees and transported them to their facilites, where they were given medical care and food. All three had signs of dehydration. They are all from Cuba and described as: Raidel G, 26, whose occupation is Computer teacher; Osmel C, 28, who is single and a fisherman; and Rosniel R, 26, who is an assistant fisherman and married. After they received medical attention, they were turned over to the Immigration agents. Their green boat was secured by the Harbor Master.

On Wednesday, the  Committee for the 17th edition of the “Cosme Alberto Martinez MagaƱa International Fishing Tournament was installed, which was attended by the mayor, officials with the Navy, City Council members and the municipal  chief of police.

 The Mayor and police officials toured the "Caseta" buidlings of the municipal police which are located in the colonias La Gloria and Salina Grande and at the mercado "Audomaro Magana". The Director of Public Works accompanied them and explained the improvements that have been made to the buildings, which had been closed for many years. They will be used as bases for the officers to perform their work and thereby strengthen security for the islanders.

 Municipal police were present at the primary schools Julio Saurio Espinoza and Cesar Mendoz Santana this week to prevent traffic accidents and ensure everyone's safety. School are returning to 100% in-person operations on Monday.

A reminder from the municipal government to throw your trash in a trash receptacle and don't litter. Let's continue caring for the beautiful white-sand beaches and crystal clear blue waters of our Pueblo Magico, which is one of the most popular destinations in the Mexican Caribbean.

 Today's post by the city government says Good cloudy days~~Isla Mujeres! Don't forget to take precautions for Cold Front #35 (which arrived yesterday with some gusty wind that blew around some of our plastic patio furniture. 

Last week, 30 young islanders began their (mandatory) military service, who were born in 2003, and the 'stragglers' (remisos). For more information about this weekend training and conscription determined by lottery for 18 year-old males....LINK

 First Aid classes for First Responders were held last week at CENDI (daycare). This year, the First Aid course required for municipal business licenses (required for all tourism rentals) are taking place at Civil Protection (Fire Station), as well as the Fire Safety classes. This year you need to bring your own extinguisher to the fire safety class.

 On Tuesday, the municipal government conducted a junk-removal campaign in the colonias of Miraflores and Lol Be as part of the program to eliminate mosquito-breeding areas. 

 Tomorrow a Motor Skills Workshop for children 4-6 will begin at the Community Center (in colonia La Gloria) on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at noon.

 Young citizens between the ages of 18 and 29 are invited to participate in the 6th state Youth Congress and should present their application by March 15th, on topics including justice, society, youth, the environment and open parliament.

 The teachers and staff at the "Isla Mujeres" kindergarten were given a workshop "Listen, Identify, and Relax" to combat stress, provided by the Education Department in coordination with DIF, social service agency.
