Tenacatita Open for Camping

The author at Tenacatita, circa 1981.

Friends at Tenacatita are currently celebrating and setting up camp!  PROFEPA (the agency that enforces rules dealing with beaches) and the Marina (the armed forces that support PROFEPA) have delivered a federal order to the Rodenas guards. The order states that the guards can not legally prevent people from using the beach road. PROFEPA has also granted our friends permission to camp at their usual spot. The Tenacatita Fund has agreed to finance the lunch that was served to the liberators, including the Navy, PROFEPA, the La Huerta police and the environmental ministry, Semarnat. Apparently most of Rebalsito came out to witness this new awesome development and are now celebrating. Salud!

I’m sure there will be a backlash from the Rodenas corporation, but right now I’m off to crack a beer and listen to some Ranchera.

    I’m on it Mayo! We plan on driving down in the van. I may need to re-arrange my travel plans in order to allow for more time at Tenacatita! Fingers crossed for the beach staying open! Now we just need to work on Sadhu and Terri!

  4. I can’t tell you how wonderful it was to hear Maximiliano from PROFEPA tell the Rodenas security guards that they had absolutely no right to close road access to the beach, to tell people where to park, to intimidate people or to do anything but guard what is supposedly “their” property until the court cases are finally settled. They tried to argue back that they have to keep the peace, etc. and Max said that was not their job and that the only people who have the authority over the Federal Zone are PROFEPA, SEMARNAT, the Marina (the armed forces in charge of protecting the Federal Zone) and the PGR (Procuraduria General de la Republica).

    Chely and her Mom are selling food out of a food cart on their land at the beach, people are camping and it’s all very exciting. FINALLY!!!

    It won’t be a walk in the park as far as beach lot rentals are concerned. It will be that you can rent by the month or season. We don’t know what the rent will be yet, just as long as it is less then the Holiday Inn.
    You have to be there early enough to get a spot with existing bano or bring a portable one? Playa Mora and the beach up to the Pepto Bizmo doesn’t have any private land available for building one until the disputes are settled. We’ll see what happens in the coming months.

    Chely and her mom now have a ramada on the beach and aren’t using the food cart any more. I also have a couple of photos on my Facebook page as far as existing banos on the beach.
