The Federal Commission for the Protection against Sanitary Risks (Cofepris) announced that of the 269 beaches in the country, only one is not in a position to receive vacationers this holiday period of Holy Week 2019. Unfortunately, it is our Sayulita Beach in Bahía de Banderas Nayarit, which is under permanent sanitary surveillance.
“The health authority, analyzed in laboratory, more than 1600 samples of water from the beaches of greater public affluence of the main tourist destinations of the country, whose result was that all but one, meet the quality criteria established as ranges of protection to the user population “said the dependency dependent on the Ministry of Health”
The building of Sayulita’s new Sewage Treatment Plant and Emissor Project should be finished soon enough and this problem will be solved.
That will be a permanent solution, which we are all looking forward to seeing completed.
