I don't think news has failed to reach them but you picked an extreme example due to its isolation i.e. who would want to walk to that beach. |
Closer to home, just North of the Lagoon there are a few malicons (passage ways) for the public to access the beach (very limited parking though) between here and Boca de Iguanas. Recently one of those malicons just disappeared due to the property owner blocking it (you can still see the structure on the beach, just no way to get there).
This new law says that people now have the right to use anyone's land to access the beach, so I would imagine there will be pressure from the other "owners" on the beach to re open that passage way.
"Property owners in Mexico are being required to allow access through their land for the public to reach beaches that do not have access roads, under a law enacted Wednesday.
The Environment Department said land owners would be compensated for access.
The law also establishes fines of up to $49,000 for hotels, restaurants or other property owners that restrict access to the country’s beaches".
Love the part about the Mexican's getting arrested, the Rosa Parks of Mexico beach access. I wouldn't be surprised to see that kind of protest increase to not only using "service isles" but using the table and chairs that are on public beach without paying, or just moving them out of the space that is legally theirs to use.
There is also this "Federal law already states the public cannot be denied access to a space 20 meters (65 feet) inland from the high tide line"
In my other post on this thread I expressed confusion and then clarification on the benefits of that 20 meters being changed to 10 meters. I think I am back to the confused category. How can it be beneficial to the people for that 20 meters to become 10 meters? Arghhh.
