I’m sad to report that the Bomberos Cruise scheduled for August 24 has been cancelled due to low ticket sales. This low season has been tough all around, but I commend Catamaya‘s owner, Fabio, for his generosity and the organizers of this event for their efforts to help the Riviera Maya Bomberos.
This doesn’t mean the Bomberos aren’t an important cause and that Playa del Carmen doesn’t value its fire team, of course. Souvenir t-shirt sales are a great way you can help support our resident heroes. Locally, t-shirts can be purchased from Gar, who sets up shop daily on the ferry pier in PdC, or from Mayte, who mans (wo-mans?) a table on 5th avenue between calles 6 and 8 (near the Burger King) at night. Non-Playenses can now buy t-shirts online here.
