Tenacatita Libre

An amazing turn of events. Unbeknownst to almost everyone, representatives of the governor's office, the Julian, the president of La Huerta, accompanied by lots of people and several truckloads of State Police (what a switch to have them on our side), came yesterday and after showing an order, began to dismantle the gate and tear down the guard shack. Several people from town helped while everyone else waited at Chito's restaurant where Julian asked us to stay until all the debris was cleared so no one would get hurt.

Obviously the other side must have known what was going to happen because they accepted it and many gathered their stuff and left.

Julian spoke to the crowd that had gathered at Chito's and explained that the concession at this time is only for a free beach, recreation and a malecon. For now no camping and no commercial use. Also people need to be responsible for their trash, and not bring lots of booze. There are still many details to be worked out. Yesterday cars had to park at the glorieta (the entrance ) but Julian asked for us to walk if we could since there were so many people.

What a glorious afternoon. Kids playing in the waves, families hanging out, big smiles on everyone's faces. This is just the beginning and just about the federal zone. The land disputes still haven't been resolved and so Rodenas' security people are guarding "their" part.

Not being from that part of the country, a little background would help.

This is incredible news for all of us here on the Costalegre - Having Tenecatita back as a free beach for the Public ...WOW
This just goes to show not to give up, keep on telling the truth and standing together for what is right and honest and just.
The people who gave so much time and energy and money and everything they had to save this beach are in my highest esteem. QUE MILAGRO!!!

How about some background for those of us who don't live there.

The president of La Huerta was here in El Rebalsito last night to give us more details. The municipio is bring in a dumpster for trash, and 10 portable bathrooms. Meanwhile they're clearing the sides of the road which had gotten quite overgrown.

Rodenas' people will stay on what they're claiming to be their land. They will have to delineate it. Also the municipio has to bring in an expert in the Zona Federal to measure and indicate exactly the limits of the zona federal.

The juicio between Rodenas and the ejido of El Rebalsito is ongoing. Neither the municipio nor the governor can do anything about it, because it's a legal issue and a judge will decide the outcome.

The most important thing for us is to respect the terms of the concession, which means use of the zona federal, although we've been asked not to go into any of the buildings. Once the terms of the concession (playa libre, recreo, malecon) have been satisfied, the presidente of La Huerta can submit a plan to change the concession, but for the moment, no permits will be available which means no vendors on the beach. Vendors are welcome to set up between Rebalsito and the beach, after making arrangements with whoever owns the land where they would like to set up.

Although we'd like to see all the changes happen at once, so people can open businesses again on the beach, this is the first BIG step. The presidente said he would come here every couple of weeks to keep us informed.

So I hope all of you in La Manz who have enjoyed Tenacatita in the past, will come and enjoy it again, with the understanding that this is just the beginning and that we have to be very vigilant to comply with the terms of the concession so as not to lose it.
