On the Costa Chica of Oaxaca there is a hidden zone called Cerro Hermoso. Estela, one of the founders of the village, tells us about the golden age which she lived with her family before the project which would threaten and end up destroying their future. A construction company modified the initial project that the community asked for: the simple renovation of a breakwater. The project turned into a dream of a tourist complex which, they said, would increase fishing yields and bring more tourists. The construction gave rise to a social, economic and environmental catastrophe: An entire bay disappeared, leaving only sand and memories.
