Riviera Maya, Q.R. — A visit by federal environmental officers has resulted in the temporary partial closure of the construction of a hotel.
Officers from la Procuraduría Federal de Protección al Ambiente were on site in the municipality of Bacalar to inspect the construction of a hotel. Officers went to the site to ensure builders were complying with the current environmental regulations.
After a review of the construction and paperwork, Profepa officers learned that the builders of the hotel were not in compliance with environmental building practices and were without Environmental Impact authorization issued by the Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources.
The construction project Hotel la Albarina located on Boulevard Costero de Bacalar Sur in the municipality of Bacalar, has been temporarily shut down for violations that span across 2,138 square meters of a coastal lagoon ecosystem.
