Cancun Beach Recovery

UPDATE NOV 24 2009

The city council of Cancún has provided us with some great official info & numbers on the project!

The project consists on the installation of longitudinal support structures and the usage of 6.2 MILLION cubic meters of sand to cover what has been taken away by hurricanes, currents, etc.

The sand will be distributed in the following way:

City / Cubic meters of sand that will be used

Cancun                            5,200,000

Playa del Carmen        800,000

Cozumel                          200,000

Cancun , being the most affected city, requires 5,200,000 cubic meters of sand to be distributed along the 12Km long beach strip, as well as the installation of longitidunal structures to prevent the sand to be taken away again.

The project’s full cost will be $230,000,000.00 MXN Pesos! Wow!

Thank you, Cancun’s City Council!

Update Nov 22 2009:

Today (Sunday, Nov 22, 2009) I decided to visit the beach at Cancun to see how the Cancun Beach Recovery project is going on. The beach entrance next to plaza forum is closed, and I was informed that the access has been restricted only to guests of hotels that are in the part of the beach strip that is being currently recovered.

These photos were taken from the rooftop terrace of Plaza Forum:
