For all of the complaining that happens in, around and about Mexico- the Mexican gov’t – and that nothing ever happens and the gov’t does nothing….I have some positive things to share.
In the states I remember these signs that would say, “Your tax dollars at work.” usually posted in front of some horrible construction site and detour that you were about to deal with. I also remember thinking what a waste it was to have the sign at all. Clearly we can see th
at something is going on. This was basically the gov’t way of saying…” see- see- we are doing something. ”
Well, here is the sign for you guys Tulum. Tulum’s gov’t is working hard to get things in top shape for the busy holiday season. This season promises to bring many new people to the Tulum area – some again and many for the first time. One new development that these guys will see….
A new bike/walking path that goes all the way from the light in Tulum town to the beach and south for about 1/2 a km. This new bike path is great. Bikes are such a wonderful way to get around Tulum. Our flat terrine, easy going people and eco friendly attitude lend to bikes PEFECTLY! This great new path is wide and smooth and an absolutely perfect addition to our little town.
What I love too are the new little palapa bus stations that are up and down the road as well. This is perfect whether you are waiting for the collectivos that run the beach road or you are walking or biking and need to take a shade break.
This new path is great and is almost finished. I will bring more pics when it is done.
There is also being money spent in areas that no tourist will ever be. So it is not all being spent on those that come and leave our shores. In Villas Tulum what was once a waste land of nothing- old broken play equipment and rocks underneath is 3 blocks of wonderful park. The palapa at the entrance to Villas Tulum is being repaired and the floor expanded to hold more people. The 2nd block is now a fully paved basketball court- complete with beautiful planters filled with palms that will shade the park nicly in a few years and 3rd…. the park structures are getting new flooring as well. Rather then large jagged rocks under the swing there will now be a smooth – kid friendly floor. In addition the paths that lead through the kids park are safe for kids to run around and play.
It is so nice that we have decided that we are going to have our daughter’s birthday party there. It is open, nice, easy and right next to the park!!!! I am really happy with the improvements that Tulum continues to make.
I cannot speak for the Mexican gov;t in general- or really the gov’t of Quintana Roo but I can say that Tulum is doing something. And the something that they are doing is going to have immediate and lasting impressions of visitors and locals alike!
