Good news in Playa Palmilla

Today, the mayor of Los Cabos Armida Castro Guzman freed up access to Playa Palmilla by demolishing the bar that restricted the passage of local families with a welding machine.

This was a struggle denounced by activists and local businessmen, since restricting access to this traditional beach is an abuse by hoteliers.

The privatization of beaches is a “serious problem,” according to Hermelinda Vargas Espino, a well known social activist and journalist, who said that authorities are already working to open up access to all Los Cabos coasts.

Vargas Espino, owner of the Colectivo Pericu blog, told that resort cities of Baja California Sur are the destinations that have been most affected by coastline privatization.

Local authorities are already taking action to open access to beaches that have effectively been privatized and to prevent future privatization, she added.

Hotel owners cannot continue to confuse a concession with privatization, preventing free beach access to the public.

“No beach in Los Cabos will restrict the way to what is owned by all Mexicans. Free public beach access. The beaches of Mexico belong to everyone,” she stressed.
