TULUM, México – The municipal president of Tulum, Diego Castañón Trejo, along with his team, embarked on a comprehensive tour of various neighborhoods and residential areas in the city to oversee preventive measures aimed at ensuring the proper functioning of absorption wells during the rainy season.

According to the Special Operations Committee on Hydrometeorological Phenomena, this year’s hurricane season is expected to be particularly active. In light of this forecast, Tulum’s administration has bolstered its preventive response capabilities to mitigate potential flooding in the city.

The importance of these measures cannot be overstated. Tulum, a city known for its vibrant tourism and rich cultural heritage, is also vulnerable to the challenges posed by extreme weather events.
