“Tulum Braces for Hurricane Season: Mayor Unveils 30 Temporary Shelters”

Tulum's mayor, Diego Castañón, has announced the establishment of temporary shelters in anticipation of the 2024 hurricane and rainy season, and the approaching Hurricane Beryl. In a recent press conference discussing the weather forecast, Castañón revealed that 30 temporary shelters have been established across the region.

These shelters are distributed throughout the region with 10 in the county seat, two each in Akumal, Chanchen Palmar, Chanchen Primero, Chemuyil, Coba, Francisco Uh May, and San Juan. There is also one each in Hondzonot, Macario Gómez, Manuel Antonio Ay, Sahcab Mucuy, and Yaxche.
