Akumal, Q.R. — As of Monday morning, the road used to access the beach at Club Akumal Caribe will be ordered permanently closed by the municipality mayor.
A judicial order to close the road and reinstall the fence that was torn down with machinery last year was defied by the mayor until a February judgement left Tulum’s mayor with an ultimatum. To restore the property or risk contempt.
Romalda Dzul Caamal, mayor of Tulum, has ordered the restoration of the property with assistance from security personnel who will see the vendors removed and the road closed as of 8:00 a.m. March 5.
Staff from the General Directorate of Public Safety and Transit of Tulum, in addition to officials of the Directorate of Revenues, will arrive at the property to ensure complete compliance.
The order to close the beach access road was given to the director of municipal Public Safety, Commander Gabriel González Ornelas, via a letter signed by mayor Romalda Dzul Caama.
Last month, the lawyer representing Club Akumal Caribe warned Romalda Dzul Caamal that she is not in a judicial position and that by refusing to close the road used to access the beach, could put her job in jeopardy.
Last year, a judge ruled that the road used to access the beach by the public was on private property belonging to Hotel Club Akumal Caribe, SA de CV and the Ukana I Akumal Center, AC.
