It's 2:30 a.m. on a Monday morning and the noise is so loud from one of the downtown bars that my house is vibrating and I can't sleep. Welcome to the new lawless Zihuatanejo courtesy of the mayor Gustavo García Bello, who is running for re-election.

Son las 2:30 horas de la madrugada de lunes y el ruido de unos de los bares en El Centro de Zihuatanejo es tan fuerte que hace vibrar mi casa y no puedo dormir. Bienvenido al nuevo Zihuatanejo sin ley cortesía del presidente municipal Gustavo García Bello, quien busca la re-elección.

That's really disgusting. I fail to see how that kind of racket can attract customers and how they can carry on a conversation once inside.

Oh to be young again and party like that, don't remember thinking about disturbing anyone in the wee hours of the morning either :ponder:

You have my sympathy. In my life I have on occasion run into a similar situation-being in Motel with RACKET all night. No action from the authorities or the Motel.

We are seeing a somewhat similar situation here in La Barra de Potosi. Besides the ATvs racing up and beach at all hours the Hotels are attracting busloads of packaged tours from the inland cities. It is fun to watch the young folks playing on the beach, even organized games, and the beach can be cleaned up after summer vacation BUT the noisy parties and drunks screaming at 2 a.m. are more than a little much.

If this situation it will lead to the Perfect Paradise turning into a Party Place that attracts all kinds of problems. Think U.SA. and Mexican beach resorts during Easter/Spring break. Think havens for mass drug usage and all that brings.

I imagine La Barra locals are divided over the issue because some are profiting from it.

But the worst part is there is NO ONE to call at the moment the offensive action is taking place. We have no functional municipal police force in Zihuatanejo, and the mayor seems to turn a blind eye to almost anything that isn't about him getting a photo op for his re-election campaign. I'm a member of the Citizen's Advisory Committee on Public Security and there is literally nothing for us to do because our most important recommendation from the moment the mayor formed the committee has been to simply APPLY THE LAWS, and he has ignored us as well as the general public in this respect. While many of us have influential friends in City Hall, it makes no difference as long as the mayor must approve everything, and the one minor achievement local residents made convincing the mayor to ban tour buses from La Ropa was overturned by the cabildo (city council) thanks to their political ambitions placing the interests of a handful of mostly illegal wandering vendors above the interests of La Ropa's residents and its hospitality industry that has millions of dollars invested in their respective businesses. I guess they should've simply offered a hefty bribe to the cabildo.

Record the noise and then Play it back at City Hall over some loud speakers !
That would surly get some attention !
