I wish the authorities would come to Cofresi . This past Sunday was ureal. People were actually blocking streets because they had no regard for where they parked . This Monday morning looked like a trash bomb had blown up. Closing the Malecon may or may not be a good idea but when you do that lots of people come to Cofresi. They don't spend money and leave the mess for us who live here.

It doesn't change a thing, those people just come to Costambar also. Beach was ridiculous this weekend. These things don't stop the people from conglomerating, it just forces MORE people into other places with no or little restrictions
