Guerrero's health officials report 4 confirmed active cases of Covid-19 in Zihuatanejo, NO cases in La Unión, NO cases in Petatlán, NO cases in Técpan, 40 in Acapulco, and 142 in the entire state.

The Marina has taken over command of the Policía Municipal in Zihuatanejo. A move I hope will be temporary. But when I first lived here in '74 everyone had more trust in the Sector Naval than the local almost nonexistent police force, a situation that remains similar today.

For some odd reason the Capitanía del Puerto decided that even though the port of Zihuatanejo is open to navigation, the old pier at Las Gatas that we've used forever cannot be used and that the transport of passengers by lancha to Las Gatas remains suspended until the floating pier that was damaged by the waves from Huracán Kay can be repaired. A truly strange decision that unnecessarily causes harm to the folks at Las Gatas when easy alternatives are available. That's the military for ya!
:wtf:

The pier at Playa Linda to get to Isla Ixtapa has been closed for a week now.

There are few places more peaceful and relaxing than these beachfront bungalows in Troncones appropriately called Casa Escondida. Easy walking to the village and many excellent restaurants.

No different than the USCG taking over any operation on the water away from a county or state authority. Not that they know better, but they are supposed to know better.

This has to do with corruption at the local level. Not the application of laws. The formal announcement hasn't been made, but it's known that Marinos will be added to the Policía Municipal and that a change of command is going to be announced by the Gobernadora, which sounds like the federal government stepping in to clean up what our local government has been unable to do.
