Quintana Roo Now has 6 Blue Flag Beach CertificationsBy Fernanda Duque Hernández
The state most awards of this kind in Mexico.
Cancún, Mexico's most important tourism destination already has 6 beaches certified by Blue Flag, an organization that recognizes excellence in environmental management of beaches and marinas.
A recognition of Cancún’s Blue Flag certifications was given to the mayor of Benito Juarez, Paul Carrillo de Caceres, on the eleventh edition of National Clean Beaches Summit held last week at this destination of the Mexican Caribbean.
During this event, two additional certifications were awarded to the Bacalar Municipal Beach and Central Beach of Isla Mujeres. This makes of Quintana Roo the Mexican state with the highest number of Blue Flag certifications.
A Blue Flag certification indicates that tourists worldwide will have the certainty that a beach – in this case, caso Chac Mool, Delfines, Las Perlas, Marlín, Ballenas and El Niño – will feature quality service such as security, lifeguards, as well as access for the disabled. Visitors will also be sure that there are environmental education programs and quality water processing.
Blue Flag is an international certification that each year receives hundreds of requests for certification. But its rigorous standards for environmental management, safety and services make it a very difficult award to obtain.
The mayor of Cancun, Paul Carrillo de Caceres, raised the Blue Flag in Playa Delfines. He was accompanied by the Secretary of Ecology and Environment (SEMA), Rafael Muñoz; the Deputy Secretary of Quality and Regulation of the Ministry of Tourism (Sectur), Francisco Peña Maass; the Mexico coordinator of Blue Flag, Joaquin Diaz Rios; the Director of the Federal Maritime Zone (Zofemat), Eduardo Mariscal de la Selva; military and naval brass, entrepreneurs and hoteliers and local authorities.
