Government restores old Isla Mujeres pier after previous administration granted it to private individual

Isla Mujeres, Q.R. — The Comprehensive Port Administration of Quintana Roo (APIQROO) says they have restored the emblematic wooden pier of Isla Mujeres. The pier, which is located at the first maritime terminal, connects ferry passengers with the island and the continental zone.

The general director of the APIQROO, Alicia Ricalde Magaña, explained that after five years, she was successful in recovering an area of 164.3 square meters of land within the maritime terminal of Isla Mujeres that had been granted to a private individual during the Roberto Borge Angulo administration.

The space was then concessioned and used for the installation of a restaurant. The transfer of rights, which ran from March 1, 2016 to February 28, 2026, was granted when Roosevelt Ercé Barrón Barrera was in charge of the General Directorate of APIQROO during the period of then-governor Roberto Borge Angulo.

When this space was recovered by the state government, headed by President Carlos Joaquín, the emblematic wooden pier was restored and is again, used as an exit toward Rueda Medina Avenue in the Centro neighborhood of Isla Mujeres.
