Tekio, a beach club chain based in Tulum, in the Mayan Riviera, dug up a hole for a water tank in the La Bocana dunes area in Todos Santos, set up a huge tent, deployed chairs, a sound system and a bar… and the party begun. Upset with the damage to the dunes, which is a no-no, the residents called on the authorities and organized to dismantle Tekio. About 150 people showed up Saturday at noon, with the police and authorities who confirmed that Tekio had no valid permits. Is it gone, gone? We’ll see. Stay tuned.
