Mexico's environmental department closes 5 small hotels south of Cancun

 

MEXICO CITY (AP) -- Mexico's Environmental Department is closing down at least five small, upscale hotels and three other developments south of Cancun.

 

Officials say the businesses don't have permission to operate in the protected area near the Tulum Ruins.

 

Inspectors and soldiers arrived Monday to post closed signs. They say they will be back on Friday to permanently close the businesses and begin clearing out guests.

 

The closures were officially announced Wednesday.

 

Hotel owners say their papers are in order and the government can't shut them down.

 

Federal environmental prosecutor Patricio Patron says the hotels could eventually be demolished if the owners can't prove their legal right to the land. But he says that will take a year or more.

I read some of the local newspapers and here's what I got from them.

I've never heard of these hotels so I'm not sure how popular they are but they apparently are located within the archaelogical site of Tulum.

One of the hotels is owned by a famous Mexican soap opera actor.

Hotel Diamante K, Tankah-I, Rancho El Jaguar and Caleta Tankah.

 

The article also mentioned Dreams Tulum and Azul Blue were NOT closed. whew!

Oh wow. That's so good to know!

 

Sounds scary... if I was on vacation and soliders showed up... uh... I'd be freaked out.

Oooh for some reason I thought I remember seeing someone in this forum mention Caleta Tankah as their wedding site!! I hope I'm wrong and if not, I hope their day comes before it shuts down so it won't affect their plans smile41.gif
