The place is really packed but will probably thin out a lot tomorrow. Kids don't go back to school for another week but adults have to work. Not quite sure why the Aquarium is popular for swimming because you dodge coral, it's shallow and too many sting rays. Still very few facilities and no restaurants or stores.
Please come and enjoy the beaches of Tenacatita. Bring your shade umbrellas and tents for camping. The road is open for access and you will not be bothered by private security guards as in the past.The governor of Jalisco, Aristotles Sandoval has guaranteed you a safe visit and has provided security by state police. If you encounter any problems from the few private security guards, please inform the state police. At this time construction of any type even palapas are not allowed. This may change in the new year. Also, bring your own sanitation and toilets as these are limited.
It's open and still very pretty. Only two State Police and no hired guns like the last 4-5 years. People are camping across the hill by the Aquarium. It's still bring your own everything and bathroom facilities are basic.
With a campaign promise the governor of Jalisco sent in his troops today to liberate Tenacatita beaches and provide free access and open camping. The state police remain to ensure the safety of citizens and tourists. The last three years have provided proof of allegations against Rodenas Corporation and hired security. Controlling public use by intimidation with guns and riot dogs including the blatant attempts of restricting beach access, limitations of camping and road closures were all cited.
The liberation breathes an air of hope for the recently ravaged community from hurricane Patricia. Slowly aid helps to rebuild. But it is a process of wait and see.
Tenacatita has always provided the life blood to this community with tourism and the employment for many . As with this struggle, the road back is a slow uphill climb.
Those of you that have recently contributed will help to rebuild for many hardest hit.Ann helping schools where needed and in lost supplies. Donations have come in for helping the children and mothers. We plan on a Christmas celebration where every child will receive a gift bag from Santa.
If you would like to donate to restructuring Tenacatita and or El Rebalsito or would like to designate to a specific cause;
