There is demand. Sadly the demand has nothing to do with tourism. The industry involved here is the same one causing the demise of tourism. The need of this industry is cleansing - not of the health oriented kind.

Though it is true that many steps along the way in this thing have opportunities to line pockets and this can partly explain such a plan, this connects eventually to a solid funding source. It is so ironic that at the same time that the cruise ship companies are canceling routes to Mexico due to the violence caused by 'we know who' that there would be this movement toward building a cruise ship pier. It's kind of laughable if you can maintain a sense of humor.

Sad news...and sadly not surprising. Here is my opportunity to say 'I told you so' - not that it gives me joy. I've believed all along (even during the protests about the building of the pier in Zihua) that the true plan has always been to put it in La Barra. I was hoping that the economic downturn would at least delay this significantly but perhaps there is no economic downturn in a certain industry. My humble opinion of course.

So if I'm right and if everyone in the States would give up buying those illicit things that come from or through Mexico...maybe that could help us stop the cruise ship pier. That would be an interesting boycott (chances of this are....???...what, nil?). Meanwhile... as Rob says, we'll see what kind of response the local people give to these unfortunate movements.

Hasta pronto,
