That is just friggin GROSS! Not an inch of land left for anything to grow in (or to absorb water). I wonder what the payoff was to get the environmental impact study approved. I can't believe SEMARNAT would approve such an obscenity to nature without a hefty payoff.

So much for building codes.

Maybe the runoff from the parking lot can go through the pools? Then to drains.


See, that's just one of the problems with this. Now I sure as hell can't cite building code and I don't pretend to know jack, but I certainly seem to recall that after Paulina hit Acapulco arroyos are no longer places where permits are ever granted for construction. And that whole deal there in the photo is one big arroyo that I've seen in action a time or two. Also the beach area there should still have a few mangroves on it that are a protected species, but that oversized pool and sundeck seem to be sitting right on top of them. I believe we've lost some mangroves. Oh dear.
