Re: That'll Buff Right Out

I guess it was the new mosquito marina was being "finished".They said docks were going into ellipse as well.Sounds like its still same old place.Not pleasant when tide goes out.

Re: That'll Buff Right Out

Hmmm... when we were there in 1986-87 there were the decaying remains of a hotel development that had composted. Never got beyond the planning and advertising stage IIRC... a big billboard with a weathered "architects impression" drawing of a splendid resort hotel. Never even moved any dirt. So sad...

Re: That'll Buff Right Out

A lot of the shortcomings of this place (to me) are resultant from Fonatur. It's been really educational to witness "top down" development where some guys in Mexico City essentially came up with an idea and ramrodded it around the country.

When I come across political arguments in the US talking about how the country is "anti-business" I just want to shake my head and say "you have no idea what an anti-business country looks like."
