Beach recovery projects at the forefront of Cancun's recovery
The New Year heralds a new beginning for Mexico’s number one tourist destination, and Funjet Vacations is happy to report that as of January 16th, 2006, Cancun’s beach renewal and restoration project has been at full swing.
While many of the beaches are open and accessible to all, there has been a loss of sand in some areas; so, the beach recovery project is dedicated to restoring these areas through a process that will dredge sand from approximately 600-feet out to sea and deposit it onto the areas of shoreline where erosion occurred.
“We are excited to see the beach restoration underway, but most importantly, we are thrilled to see Cancun returning to its old self – sparkling, vibrant and energized,” said Artemio Santos Santos, executive director of the Cancun Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB). “We will soon move from restoration and renovation work back to ongoing projects of expansion and enhancement that will make Cancun more alluring than ever.”
To the relief of all who know and love Cancun, this project is just one more step Cancun, Mexico has taken to restore their home back to its legendary beauty, and to ensure that each and every visitor has an unforgettable vacation filled with long and relaxing beach walks.
