Road Construction Begins In Protected North Area en Route to Isla de la Pasion


Cozumel’s environmentally sensitive northern zone is undergoing a 90M peso renovation to the road to the access area for the Isla de la Pasion.  The project, which has been in the works since last year, has both the permission of the  National Commission of Natural Protected Areas (Conanp) and the National Marine Park of Cozumel.  The project, will pave the rough dirt road past the Cozumel Country Club to the pier at Bahia Ciega, the pier for departure to Isla de Pasion.

This area is home to mangroves, palma de chit, and even the endangered Cozumel pygmy raccoon, so construction materials will consist of materials found in the vicinity as well as ecology-friendly materials so as not to upset the fragile eco-system.  For example, a material known as “ecocrete” will be used between the CAPA San Miguel Carcamo to Bahia Ciego, because it is permeable and allows water flow.  The width of the road will also vary from 7M/23F to 4M/13F depending upon the forestation.

The entire project will be overseen by SINTRA,(Secretaria de Infraestructura y Transporte) to ensure that work is being carried out in accordance with approved permits and permissions.

An ex-Connecticut Yankee who has called Cozumel home for over 18 years, Laura ran away to the Caribbean years ago, bumped around the islands teaching SCUBA diving, lost some time in Jamaica, and finally stopped in Cozumel for a 2 week vacation that hasn’t ended yet. With a degree in Journalism from a fancy private college she convinced her parents to pay for, Laura writes, edits, and creates the weeklyCozumel 4 You news,social media, and promotional articles about the island, as well as moderates the Cozumel 4 You Facebook group, which currently has over 25,000 members.

Proud parents to a variety of rescue dogs and cats, Laura continues to be the bane of her traditional Mexican mother-in-law’s existence, as she muses her way through life in the Mexican Caribbean.
