Senate beefs up laws on access to beaches

The Mexican Senate has approved reforms to the General Law of National Assets, increasing the fines for establishments or individuals that restrict access to Mexico’s beaches, to more than one million pesos.

The Mexican Constitution decrees all beaches to be publicly-accessible federal property and, as such, people have right of access to them anytime. However,  many owners of lands adjacent to beaches either prevent, inhibit, restrict, or condition access. All will be liable for sanctions under the beefed-up laws.
