In April the Chalacatepec Mega Resort (New Cancun) funded by Ipejal (Jalisco State Workers Fund) and Rasaland was brought to a halt until the land dispute with the local Ejido is resolved. The injunction is against the Ministry of Agrarian Development, both nationally and in the state, Ministry of Communications and Transport, Aviation, Tomatlán City Council, the Public Registry of Property, the National Water Commission, State Government.
It seems the Aunt of Governor Emilio Gonzalez Marquez, owns 200 hectares located in Chalacatepec, that separates an area of land purchased by Rasaland company to build the resort. To make management decisions for State Workers funds without making it public the Law was amended if connected to private companies. Audit information from Ipejal was not forthcoming nor was the Environmental Study info. That combined with Rasaland's connection to Goldman Sachs had some believing the whole thing was a fraud.
With the continuing land and payment dispute with the Ejido, lack of project plans and the 3-5 years to do a complete environmental study .... it looks like "The New Cancun" will be on hold for awhile.
