Cozumel, Q.R. — Nearly one million peso is being invested into the rehabilitation of three of the island’s lookouts. In a statement, Cozumel mayor Juanita Alonso Marrufo says just over 916,000 peso is being spent to repair the island’s three busy viewpoints.
The money, she reported, is coming from the Directorate of Public Works who have already launched the rehabilitation of the first of the three lookouts, all of which are located on the eastern side of Cozumel.
Marrufo says the structures date back to 2010 and are in much need of updating due to natural wear and tear and also the passing of at least three major storms.
Carlos Daniel Pomol Gómez, the Director of Public Works for Cozumel, says Zofemat (Zona Federal Marítimo Terrestre) began the work on Monday. The three viewpoints being rehabilitated are on the beaches of Chumul, Chen Río and San Martín.
They decided to start with the San Martín beach viewpoint first since it is the busiest. When it is complete, they will move on to the Chumul viewpoint and then Chen Rio.
