Isla Mujeres, Q.R. — Beaches of the municipality of Isla Mujeres outside the city of Cancun have been given the go-ahead for a rescue project.
Desarrolladora Inmobiliaria Hotelera Playa Mujeres, SA de CV has been given the green light to move forward with a beach rescue project at mainland Isla Mujeres. The project will see the Playa Mujeres area in front of the residential building, Marina 1 and 2, restored to prevent further erosion.
The company has received approval from environmental authorities to begin adding beach filler, two breakwaters and an artificial dune that will not only see the restoration of the beach, but also prevent further deterioration.
Part of the project will include an artificial dune that will be nearly 357 meters in length as well as 400 meters of beach fill that will bring the beach back to its near-original state.
The general directorate of the Secretariat of Environment and Natural Resources authorized the Environmental Impact Statement (MIA), noting the company will invest nearly 32 million peso for the beach restoration and that the company must comply with all environmental regulations to keep their authorization.
