Censoring the video

I think it was removed to protect the interests of the local inns and beach establishments. Heard reports that reservations were canceled after viewing. We have been here a while swimming and surfing - no worries & no sharks!

I sure as hell am disappointed that lodging and tourist service operators at Troncones put their pocketbooks before public safety.

If there is nothing to worry about then THAT'S WHAT THIS FORUM IS FOR! Information, not censorship, builds trust and confidence. Potential visitors should have the right to be informed and make informed decisions about their safety.

If lodging and tourist service operators in Troncones believe sharks in the shallows of Playa Manzanillo do not represent any additional risk for their potential clients then they should have the decency and good sense to explain their point of view. But to pressure Ernie to remove the video looks a lot like they value their money more than they value public safety, and I find that an irresponsible and despicable attitude to take.
