Tenacatita Libre

Hola Amigos de Tenacatita,

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; 


checks mailed to

Jalisco beaches only for the rich

No hay playas para ti, mexicano jodido

No beaches for you, Mexican fucked

Playa Mazunte

On the beaches around the country they began to place apocalyptic signs: "Private property, no trespassing". Fishermen, villagers, shopkeepers and families begin to be displaced from their own land. They are treated as foreigners in their country, undesirable strangers, visual pollution unbearable for exclusive international hotels.

Since 1986 Mayan descendants of the indigenous rebels of the Caste War ran out of beach in the biosphere reserve of Sian Ka'an, marginalized of the tourist project of the Riviera Maya driven by the then Governor Pedro Joaquin Coldwell, now secretary Energy of the federal administration. In Jalisco, a study by the National Regeneration Movement warned that 82 percent of the 280 kilometers of coastline is being privatized. In October 2010, the rightful owners of 42 acres of beachfront Tenacatita, in that state, were stripped of their land because a judge granted a particular area. And last August, fishermen from the town of La Huerta, in that entity, were cast from the beach by private guards of a resort. And what of Guerrero, where the ejidatarios Revolcadero, Copacabana and La Zanja were faded to give way to Punta Diamante complex. Five stamps National exodus ahead.


Public goods are not trinkets to be offered to the highest bidder. The privatization of the beaches is a continuation of the course of the country: an elite with excessive ambitions malbaratar able to change an entire nation to live like Hollywood stars.

Instead of remaining as spectators of looting more than the rest of Mexico, it is essential that at least we join the campaign to not become foreigners in our own country.

The dream of Rodenas and Villalobos

Where do land grabbing developers in Mexico get off with Photoshop versions of their resorts and promising they will be open in a few months. Saxaa A3 resorts has been doing it for four years while knowing full well there is a legal dispute over most of the property in Tenacacita. I've seen the Photoshopping on other developments in our area but this one is especially important due to Rodenas and Villalobos stealing the land, destroying businesses and very possibly the lives of the people of Rebalsito and Tenacatita. I hope this POS never happens

Rent-a-Goon's are back

Private goon police problems again at Tenacatita -- Armed and intimidating, guards surround Chitos construction of new restaurant . There are at least a dozen of them all in this small area

Tenactita ...... Rent-a-Goon policia otra ves molestando gente

Posted by DobieEmail User on May 16, 2015, 12:13 am, in reply to "Re: Tenacatita"

Today the goons told Chely she couldn't go to work in her restaurant because they own the sidewalk and she can't cross it. Politics are everywhere right now, before the elections on June 7. It didn't make me feel very good to see Emilio Marquez (ex-governador of Jalisco, best buddies with Villalobos) supporting Enrique Alfaro. And here I thought Movimiento Ciudadano was going to be different. How naive....

Stop work order by PROFEPA

Stop work order by PROFEPA . Restaurant remains open

Chely's Restaurant is open but has a stop work order
Evidently Chito was building it for Chely

Note from Dobie -- Chito's construction was stopped by SEMARNAT because he needs an environmental impact report. Chely's is fine because it's only palapa - no bricks or concrete.

Chito's new restaurant

Chito's new restaurant will be open in time for summer vacation

Anything new will be across the road rather than the beach side because the Federal concession is yet to be decided by the Municipio of La Huerta. The restaurant will have bathrooms and there are primitive bathrooms down by the lagoon. Cleaning of the lagoon area is looking real nice. Poco a poco but it looks like finally the people have Tenacatita back.

Tenacatita really open?

Lots of excitement over Semana Santa with the Military and Federales telling the "rent-a-cops" to take a hike and don't bother anyone using the beach or area for the vacation weeks. Upwards of three thousand people were reported on the beach the first week of Semana Santa. Not sure how sanitary it is with no facilities but nobody seemed worried. We'll see next week if the rent-a-cops come back like before but the rumor is the beach will remain open.

Tenacatita not quite open

Posted by dobie on January 1, 2015, 5:13 pm, in reply to "Re: Tenacatita"

Unfortunately last night the gate to Playa Mora went up again and people who were planning to have a campfire on the beach to bring in the New Year were not allowed. But the marina will be back (if they haven't been already)and right now Villalobos' security guards are in violation of a federal order. Due to the holidays, there are less personnel in government offices and less police available, so it may take a few days. By the time I left around noon, some cars were able to drive over to Playa Mora, unload people, ice chests, etc. and then bring the vehicle back over to the other side to park. 

Although some people have won their lawsuits and have been given their property back, they haven't been able to take possession. These are all outside of the 42 hectares. 

Until the issue of the concession is settled, nothing can happen on the beach in terms of restaurants, businesses, etc. Hopefully that will be resolved soon. 

A representative of PROFEPA (the judicial arm of SEMARNAT - the "environmental protection agency") went to the beach a week or so ago, undercover, and experienced first hand how the security guards try to intimidate people. They reported back that there in fact wasn't free access to the zona federal, that the beach wasn't open 24 hours a day, and that the guards were very disrespectful and were overstepping their bounds. 

One of the first things the marina did was take all the weapons from the guards except for two who have legal permits for their pistols. 

Having PROFEPA step up for real, finally, is very heartening. A positive way to start the new year. 

Stay tuned....

Tenacatita update
Yesterday Bette and I asked someone in the know if there was any new news on the situation in Tena as I heard the president of the municipio was around, and he doesn't come around very often. The person winked at me and said "banate ahi en Tenacatia alredador de las 11 en la mañana." I was pretty sure something good was going to happen, but not quite sure what. When Bette and I arrived at the beach, about 11:15, we met with Chile, Norm and Vi. We had given Chile a heads up about what we heard and he had gotten there on time, and at that time there was nothing new. We arrived a little late and when we arrived there were armed soldiers present from the Marina. Anyway, I said Bette and I are going to see if we can't take a walk down the 4 year closed road and see what they say. I asked one of the corporate guards if we could take a walk down the road and he told me as always that I couldn't, only on the beach. I ignored him and asked one of the Marina (federal Mexican Navy guys) if I could take a walk down the road, and he said "Si señor, todo la playa y el camino es libre, es zona Federal y es abierto al publico". Well my feet, that had know every pebble on that road for 35 years and hadn't been allowed to stub a toe on any of those rocks for the last five said "Please give a good stubbing." The five of us took a walk down the road and let me tell you, it was sabrosisimo. When we were walking, some ejido members were driving down in a truck, another first. Upon return some members of the Ejido informed us that they opened the gate to playa Mora and had sent someone for hacksaws and wrecking bars to remove it permanently and suggested that as tourists, it would be a good idea to drive over to Mora in my truck. The five of us loaded up and away we went con rumbo a playa Mora. When we got to the kiosk where one of the corporate guards, whose vocabulary consisted only of the word "NO" for 4 years, stopped us, I said we are going to playa Mora. Instead of "NO"' he said"Pasa te jefe". This is hot off the presses and there will be more coming, but one thing I can tell you is that we'll be celebrating New Year's Eve on Tenacatita beach, where nobody will fck with us! Big time THANKS go to the tough and tenacious people of Rebasito who never gave up in a David and Goliath fight.
