Hola, newbie here, but an occasional reader/ lurker if you would.

Any ole hoot, the linked material sourced above is indeed from my blog CancunCasa (often paraphrased, often not) which of course is gathered from at least a dozen or so news sites, Mexican government agencies and the private company Jan de Nul and their Mexican subsidiary Dragados. What it is not, is from the link above in the quote, and it most certainly is my writing being, shall we say borrowed w/o attribution in the linked source above. I've left a message for the site owner linked in the quote.

In any case, and I loathe making a first post with the above "correction", the beach restoration has been recently stalled due to poor weather/ surf conditions, including a missed official send off ceremony by the Mex Pres., and mainly, legal wranglings by environmentalists (CityMar) of Coz.

The long and short of it for the unaware is that "CityMar" filed a series of court papers attempting to halt the mining of sand well offshore of Coz at an area known as the North Bank. CityMar was successful in gaining a Fed Court injunction to halt the process at the North Bank provided they put up 15 Million Pesos Cash or secured bond that was due this afternoon, they failed to do so.

Depending on the court's reaction, sand mining and subsequent beach replenishment could start as soon as tomorrow in Cancun... and hopefully soon thereafter in Playa.

Hopefully... ;-)

well, great
after the court declared that my accuser had to put up three times my fianza, he did nothing
the case continued for several more years
pretty arbitrary these court mandated things here in mexico
depends a lot on who is more friendly with da judge
just sayin'

Hopefully something starts soon. Have friends staying at Riu Palace Mexico right now and he posted a few pics of the beach. The crappy weather has started eroding the beach again and bit of a ledge forming, nothing close to what it was like in '07 though. They're moving sand around by wheelbarrow but that won't accomplish much.

Thank You...

The strange thing is, if they (the site) had asked or provided attribution, they would have been granted permission by myself or under our Commercial Commons License.

Okay...but his corrected link has nothing to do with the legal issues (arrests, closed beach) that was described in your link.

But alrighty then

I added the link to my earlier post to give him credit as the source of the information I found.

Would that be equivalent to "laundering money"? I think that it would flush (one bill at a time) but eventually would clog up the system. Beach restoration looks great when it is initally completed, but...............
IT DOES NOT WORK in the long run. I saw it when I lived in Ocean City, MD and saw it when I lived in Boca Raton, FL. The sand, sooner or later, will be washed back out to sea.
I agree, for the first time, with snappysammy. Might as well flush the money down the "toilet".........
