ZIHguen Las Estupideces

More people are getting tested for Covid-19 at the Clínica de El Embalse, and no surprise, there are currently 144 active cases confirmed in Zihuatanejo, which means the real number may be as much as 3 times that. Thank goodness people are getting vaccinated. Hopefully the process will speed up now as more vaccines are available and the people responsible for administering them streamline their administration. Still seeing too many tourists not respecting sanitary conditions.

Now the government wants to "Blue Flag" Playa La Madera, meaning banning pets and not allowing people to bring their own food and drinks or chairs and umbrellas. The government is apparently trying really hard to run off a significant portion of tourists while catering to a very few influyentes. They offer lies and excuses such as a large portion of international tourists seek destinations with Blue Flag beaches. Maybe in Europe, but not our traditional tourists who have sustained us and allowed many of our local families to prosper for the past 50 years or so, while also contributing much to the well being of our community. Never mind they are reneging on an agreement made by around a hundred folks during the administration of Eric Fernández B. including restaurant and lodging owners, turisteros and property owners who all voted NOT to ban pets from the beaches at that time, and who to my knowledge have not changed their position. We don't have enough tourism to be running a significant portion of them off. Some La Madera residents have already expressed their opposition to the proposal. This local government appears determined to ruin our local tourism industry and instead pretend Zihuatanejo is some other destination. A recipe for disaster when we pretend to be something we aren't.

The new waterfront "highway" requires a lot more sweeping to keep it clean.
