The constant complaint of the hotel sector, said Roberto Terrones Cortés, is the “harassment” of street vendors to tourists and the excess noise generated by musical bands

“We try to maintain contact with them, have an agreement so that Semarnat and Profepa begin to get more involved in trying to put order, it is a constant in most hotels, that gangs and street vendors is a problem for tourism who comes to rest”, he declared.

These federal agencies are the ones that control these permits because it is a federal area like the beach, they are also the ones who issue these permits and keep track of expiration dates.

Terrones Cortés pointed out that the problem goes further, awareness is required, above all, of this type of service providers, that they respect others, that they do not get out of control and that they have time and space limits.
