Welcome to Cancun, where the sun is hot and the news is hotter! We've got a story for you today that's sure to make waves in Region 107. The people there have been recognizing Marybel Villegas' commitment to the community, and we have to say, we couldn't agree more! Villegas has been working tirelessly to improve the lives of people in the region, and it's great to see her efforts being recognized.

Unfortunately, not all news in Cancun is good news. Did you know that 15% of water bodies in the northern zone are polluted? That's right, and what's even more alarming is that Cancun has the highest number of contaminated cenotes. These are sacred sinkholes that are revered by the Mayan people, and it's a shame to see them being polluted by human activity.

Speaking of human activity, forced marriages continue to be a reality for many women in Quintana Roo. This is a serious issue, and it's one that we need to address as a society. It's heartbreaking to think of women being forced into marriages against their will, and we need to do everything we can to stop this practice.

On a more positive note, SESA has been training 525 workers on how to deal with dengue. This is an important step in preventing the spread of this disease, which is transmitted by mosquitoes. With more trained medical personnel, we can be better prepared to deal with dengue cases and prevent further outbreaks.

Finally, we have some news that might make you do a double-take. The right to sanitation will now be for traffic lights! That's right, tourists will be paying for the remodeling of traffic lights in Cancun. It might sound a bit odd, but this is an important project that will help to keep the city clean and free of garbage. Plus, it's always good to have traffic lights that are functioning properly! That's all for now, folks! We'll be back soon with more news from Cancun.
