Playa Blanca public access

The lots in question run from Lot 1(where the road from the airport straitens out) to Lot # 64 on the Northern outskirts of La Barra de Potosi. Las Palmas is on Lot # 4, El Excondite is on Lot # 14. These lots were surveyed and sold by the MX government a number of years ago. Each lot is 100 meters by 100 meters and is bordered on the West by the beach and on the East by the beach access road. When the government surveyed and sold these lots they left a 10 meter public access lot every ten lots (i.e., between Lots 10 and 11 then between Lots 20 and 21 and so on.

Today I was told by a usually reliable source that the public access lots were "sold" off to private owners a few years ago. Of course, I will look up the public records to confirm this.

However, just wondering if anyone has further information on this subject.

If true, it means virtually the entire of Playa Blanca does not have public access and is, in effect, private beach.

Does your concern extend to the north along Playa Larga as well? A group of us spent an afternoon at Marbella on Playa Largo (north of Las Palmas) and the beach had a lot of access points.

I was reminded by a friend that the public access is every five lots (500 meters) not every ten lots.

I don't know about Playa Larga. I seem to recall there have been a lot of posts about the Ixtapa beach and how the hotels have simply ignored the law and platted lots and built on the public accesses and refused entry to the beach by locals.

I know the public access lots are on Playa Blanca as I have seen the actual government plat.

I think the same rule for public access is supposed to be in effect for all of the Mexico beaches but, as usual all over the world, justice goes to those with the deepest pockets.

I will eventually get to the place where the official public records are kept (Aduana?) and check it out for myself. Although the official public records are often ignored, they are I am assured, what an attorney can defend in a court of law.

Too bad there are no active title companies in the area.
