Central shopping areas of Playa del Carmen to be remodeled says mayor

Playa del Carmen, Q.R. — The mayor of Playa del Carmen says that by March, work will begin on transforming the city’s popular central shopping avenues.

The announcement came after her meeting with the state delegate of the National Institute of Migration. Laura Beristain Navarrete explained that the city of Playa del Carmen is home to more than 25 nationalities as well as people from all states of the country.

“We are forming a committee, which I think, will be complete next Wednesday. We have already done several tours of the avenues. We have to achieve an integral beauty of this municipality that we love so much and which receives so many people around the world,” said Laura Beristain Navarrete.

During a tour that began at six in the morning, she analyzed Fifth and 10th Avenues along with the beach area, confirming the remodeling of the popular shopping districts.

“Putting order or entering a transformation is going out of the comfort zone, but that’s what people voted for and what they’ve earned, to live in a better place where we can take a walk with a grandmother without any problems,” she said.

Specific details about the remodeling of the areas have not yet been released, only that members of city council have been taking photographs for the past two weeks and that they anticipate beginning work in March.

Beristain Navarrete noted that her directors and officers have until the first of December to gather all the information needed to improve Fifth Avenue, 10th Avenue and the beach area. She says that when they begin, the work will take four or five months to complete.
