I just pulled this from TOMzap also: |
From the November 5, 2010 Visitors' Comments:
Yesterday a friend and I went out to Tenacatita, more just to see what it actually looks like. There is a real roadblock made up of two fences about 3-4 meters apart. Reminded me of something like Checkpoint Charlie. Big signs "Propiedad Privada", but the guards 6 or 8 of them, were all Estetales, State Police. One of them had his hand in a bag on his stomach the whole time. My friend was able to persuade them that we didn't expect food or banos or services of any sort, just wanted to see the beach. ....they let us in!!
ALL the restaurants are gone. Leveled. Only things left standing are the yellow hotel just off the beach, the big pink hotel down a ways and the newer hotel/rest. at the end under the big hill dividing this beach from the camper beach on the other side. On top of that high point was another armed observation station manned by 2 more police. They had their glasses on us and probably a rifle. Around, here and there we saw more State Police and their trucks.
What is being built are cement pads with new palapas over them. Looks like they might be snack bars or some such. There were 3-4 of those either done or under construction. I also saw, at the same end of the beach, a larger construction underway. Large tall walls....new hotel? Future maintenance sheds? No se.
It was very sad for us. So many wonderful memories are connected with that place, and now it is gone. Stopped in Rebalsito....boy, are they hurting. Storekeeper and wife said they had no business at all. The man indicated that they were, "Getting ready"....oh, boy. Nobody's giving up, yet.
