San Pancho Beachfront Development Meets Opposition

The beachfront development project, which includes a total of 65 new apartments in San Pancho, is backed by Canadian investors who are collaborating with Mexican real estate development company Lemmus.

San Francisco, Nayarit, Mexico - A residential development project planned for San Francisco (a.k.a. San Pancho) in the Riviera Nayarit is encountering fierce opposition from a group of local residents who question its viability and believe it poses a threat to the small town.

The Punta Paraíso project proposes the construction of two six-story apartment buildings and one three-story condominium in the small Pacific coast community but residents say that the social and cultural impact of the development along with a lack of urban infrastructure make it unfeasible.

The beachfront development, which includes a total of sixty-five new apartments, is backed by Canadian investors who are collaborating with Mexican real estate development company Lemmus.

A scarcity of drinking water is one of the biggest barriers to the project, according to a blog post by the Alianza de la Costa Verde.

"It seems schizophrenic to promote further tourism development of the region without resolving the water shortage problem," the post reads.

The group also argues that deficiencies in the sewer system and garbage collection make the beachfront project unviable as it would place significant new pressure on already failing infrastructure.
