Yesterday was a big day here in Mahahual. The cruise ship executives were here to look over the new water park, the port, and the village of Mahahual. The water park was unveiled to them, and they got a tour of the park. The cruise ship higher-ups also got a tour of the port and town.
Before their arrival, the port, and the town had a facelift. The lighthouse got a new paint job, and the area outside the port also got cleaned up with a fresh new coat of paint. Even the curbs in Mahahual got a fresh new coat of paint.
All this was done because Mahahual is about to attract a lot more cruise ships and tourists in the near future. With the anticipation of the new water park opening, a lot of interest in Mahahual as a cruise ship and tourist destination is increasing daily.
I was told this yesterday, but I am going to double-check today with our office here, that on October 16, 17, 18 the water park will open and be free to all the residents of Mahahual and the surrounding area. The rides and all the activities will be free to everybody. I will have more on this in the next day or two. I have to get verification on this to make sure it is not a CMR, (Costa Maya Rumor), and is in fact a CMF ,(Costa Maya Fact).
So in the next day or two, I should have some good photos and more information on the water park and the opening. Today I am posting some photos of all the painting and improvements going on. I think Mahahual is about to become a major tourist destination in southern Quintana Roo.
Also on the Sargasso front, I can say that I think the seaweed problem here is over in Mahahual for the time being. I have been watching and for the last week or so, the Sargasso is not washing up on the beach like it has in the past ten months. There are patches here and there, but for the most part it is gone.
