CANCUN, on the road to self-destruction. FONATUR is accountable to no-one.

CANCÚN, on the road to self-destruction. "Cancún of all places… a hostage of its own, the place is trapped in the vicious circle of tourism development, which both feeds it and kills it, no regrets" by Giedre Steikunaite:


Cancún, Mexico’s suicide capital, is already facing the consequences of its ‘development’

COMMENTARIO de Giedre Steikunaite:

Alianza de la Costa Verde:

thank you very much for your comment and the link you provided. Indeed, there is a myth, a fantasy, and the reality - and these two, sadly, are very contradictory.

The Myth: all is good in the tourism sector managed by FONATUR.

Translation of the original document from the link above for our English language readers:

The Reality: little or no economic development for local settlers, instead, the interests of land/property developers are prioritized; environmental crisis generated by the development; sustainability, the core principle of tourism development, only exists on paper and has never been taken into consideration by FONATUR.

How about efforts to fight back?
