Mexico stops hotel project at one of the most important sea turtle nesting beaches in the world

Environmental authorities in Mexico have stepped in to protect one of the most important sea turtle nesting beaches on the Caribbean. The federal government has halted plans to build a 520-room hotel, which would have erected twenty-three buildings and an artificial lake just inland from the Xcacel beach, north of the resort of Tulum, near the turtle nesting site.
