When i first came to Boca de iguanas in 1992.... the south wing of Hotel Tenacatita was starting to disintegrate. The central spiral staircase was still standing...Beautiful.. All the windows and doors had been taken out...
In 1993 Francois (Sepillin for the ones who knew him in LM) kind of managed the hotel as a backpackers hang out.... The 1995 earthquake and tsunami gave it further damage.(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1995_Colima%E2%80%93Jalisco_earthquake)
The original abandonment came from a gas explosion, one dead, no insurance.... owners ran away from responsibilities. In 2010 we witnessed the hotel, now in ruins, being used for a search and rescue site for earthquake victims.
Many bomberos from all over mexico came for that "conference"...
2 or 3 years ago someone made an experimental video, which was shown at Casa Luz....
