MEXICO CITY — Developers have withdrawn a proposed plan to build a resort complex on Mexico’s Holbox island, a low-key ecotourism site known for its flocks of flamingos.
The head of the Environment Department’s office on the Caribbean coast says developers voluntarily withdrew a plan they submitted several years ago.
Raul Gonzalez said Monday the department officially closed its file on the application to build three hotels and 872 residential units on Holbox.
Gonzalez said the developers gave no reason for the decision.
