Garbage and bad smells in the Olas Altas area of Puerto Vallarta


This Monday, January 4, the CPS Noticias cameras took a tour of the Malecón de la Marina, adjoining to observe the situation that occurred after the last Sunday of vacation in December 2021 and the first days of January 2022.

From the outset, it can be seen that the Malecón de la Marina area looks clean, as does the pedestrian bridge over the Cuale River, which is in good condition at least swept, although it is still dirty in the garbage cans area.

Something, in this case of the bridge, the central approach remains open, which is dangerous and can cause an accident situation due to bad passage to people who walk through this pedestrian space, without realizing the opening that is getting bigger every day. 

As we moved towards the Olas Altas area, in the beach area, but at the height of the Lázaro Park, a group of people found in the sand the perfect place to spend the night, although not all of them were destitute, there were also those who Their horse got tired and they did not arrive at their accommodation.    

When reaching the Manuel M Diéguez street mouth towards Olas Altas beach, strong leachate odors are perceived, which the public cleaning staff cannot avoid, because the bags do not support the weight of the garbage, they tear and the liquids are They run down the street generating horrible odors with those liquids that invade the entire street as tourists pass by. 

This situation also occurs in the Lázaro Cárdena park, on the corner of Olas Altas and Francisca Rodríguez, where the same thing happens with the garbage bags that equally spill their contents and blacken the floor in this part of the tourist area.       

Undoubtedly, the awareness of hoteliers and restaurateurs is much needed to use more resistant bags to prevent leachates from continuing to drain towards the street, it is a great, a horrible thing to be on the beach smelling that amount of leachate that to finish complicating the situation when they go or when it rains they go directly to the beach which is not pleasant.
