State of Guerrero inaugurates second inclusive beach for people with disabilities

Tecpan de Galeana, Guerrero — With an investment of 12 million peso between the state and federal governments, the second inclusive beach was opened in the community of Bahías de Papanoa, in the municipality of Costa Grande, benefiting more than 18,000 locals with disabilities.

State governor, Héctor Astudillo Flores, together with the representatives of DIF, Mercedes Calvo and Jésus Naime Libién, cut the ribbon inaugurating the new beach, Ojo de Agua.

The new beach is fully equipped to accommodate people with disabilities, making it the state’s second inclusive beach area. The beach now offers exclusive parking, special bathrooms, a marine buoy system, access ramp and amphibious equipment such as chairs, walkers and crutches, stretchers, adapted beds, an ecological park and public lighting.

Naime Libién said that the project took a year to complete and is now a reality that everyone can visit the beach and enjoy the sand and the sea.

Before closing the inauguration, officials thanked President Enrique Peña Nieto and the president of DIF, Angélica Rivera for the support needed to carry out the project.
