Mexico launches battle for Tulum beach

The federal government's closure of five small, exclusive hotels on Tulum's breathtaking stretch of white-sand beaches has created an uproar over who has the title to one of the few still-to-be-fully-developed coastlines left along the exclusive Riviera Maya. At least five other developments near Tulum's seaside Mayan ruins are also under investigation.

Title disputes have haunted the Tulum beach for decades. At the heart of this dispute is whether the hotels were built in a federal park.

This is an interesting story. Tulum is one of the last enclaves on the Mexican Caribbean that hasn't been overrun by glitzy mega resorts. It has recently become a hotspot for eco-tourists looking for an out of the way oasis.

Now the Mexican federal government is taking over, claiming the land is protected and the hotels will eventually be demolished so the area can be returned to its natural state. Those being evicted from property that has been there for decades say the Federales just want the valuable beachfront land for themselves. Guests have pretty much until Friday to pack up and leave.
