Cancun, Q.R. — After the reopening of Cancun’s fourth beach, Playa El Niño Friday, the mayor of Cancun has announced the reopening of all beach as of Monday. Cancun mayor Mara Lezama announced the opening of all beaches as of this Monday, September 14, noting that health protocols must be followed.
Lezama said that September 7, Playas Delfines, Chac Mool and Las Perlas beaches reopened to the public, followed by Playa El Niño that Friday. She says that as of September 14, Playas Ballenas, Coral and Marlin will also open with all the preventive health measures.
Regarding the opening of Playa Marlin, she is asking citizens to use the beach with extreme care since there are approximately 9,000 sea turtle eggs along the beach. She added that the city did not anticipate as many nests as they currently have, all of which, she adds, are protected.
Lezama noted that a joint operation with Zofemat, the Directorate of Ecology, Cancun firefighters and the Tourist Police, will have authorities on the lookout, constantly protecting the nests.
Mayor Mara explained that due to good behavior and the following of procols during the first week, the remainder of the beaches will open. She said that during the first reopening week, there were no reports of incidences, adding that Cancun beachgoers complied with the established protocols and requirements, which translates into confidence in the reopening of the remaining beaches, which she reminds residents, are open from 9:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.
