Who are the marines in Mexico and why is their presence important? here we explain it to you

Why does Punta de Mita request a Naval Station?

Mexico has had painful wounds due to the presence of different drug cartels throughout the national territory. Deriving from this, different strategies have been carried out that have allowed some of the regions to recover their security.

The Riviera Nayarit has faced critical circumstances in security matters but it is thanks to the determination of its authorities that it has been possible to put an end to them. The State Government of Nayarit, together with the Municipal Government of Bahía de Banderas and the private initiative of the area represented by ADEPM, decided to join forces and manage to protect the area with the presence of the SEMAR Secretariat of the Navy.

Throughout the country, different Advanced Naval Stations (Estaciones Navales Avanzadas ENA) have been built as is the case of Los Cabos and Michoacán; achieving to considerably reduce violence in those states. The ENA’s are facilities that serve as a logistic support center for maritime and land operations; and also to help the population in case of emergencies or disasters.

“It is considered that the Riviera Nayarit will guarantee to maintain its safety with the construction of an ENA, located in Litibú, to strategically place it at the center of the other 2 naval zones of the region. A seat belt would be created having the 8th. Naval zone south in Puerto Vallarta and the 6th to the north in San Blas”
