Vecinos Update

Vecinos Launches New Community Website

Vecinos de Akumal Norte, the North Akumal Neighbors’ Association, has launched a new website for the Akumal Norte community. It has a new, modern look and feel, with secure online credit card processing built in. It’s easy to navigate, and is filled with new and up-to-date information about the community and Vecinos’ initiatives. All Vecinos members are pre-registered to log on to the Member Area with online member forums, a member directory, and other members-only content. Have a look!

December Extraordinary Meeting Report

An extraordinary meeting of Vecinos was held on December 15, 2022 to amend a number of provisions of the Bylaws. A total of 48 members were in attendance, including 10 members represented by proxy. There was no quorum for the meeting called for 3pm so, in accordance with the second notice, the meeting was called to order at 3.30.  Note, a second call for an extraordinary meeting requires a supermajority of 75% for approval of changes to the Bylaws.

Three of the proposed amendments received the necessary 75%.  The remaining 5 proposed amendments did not reach that threshold.  For further details see

Vecinos annual membership meeting will be held on 23 February 2023.  There will be an Extraordinary meeting on the same day.

After much thought and consideration, Tandy Muir-Warden and Dan Freeman are announcing our decision to resign from our offices as of February 23, 2023.  We are announcing today to give those who are interested and qualified the time they need to organize their campaigns to run for these offices.

Tandy and I have served the community for over eight years and we have served with full commitment to the job. Now we really need time for ourselves and our families. We of course will be here for consulting if it is needed.

Our commitment to Akumal Norte and the friendships with our (Vecinos) neighbors remains always,

Dan and Tandy
