Ocho Tulum Boutique Hotel Owners File Lawsuit In Mexican Federal Court Over Seizure In December

A favorite destination of New York Times travel editors in Tulum, Mexico is closed to tourism for the holidays as U.S. owners file lawsuit over rightful ownership

Denver, Colo. January 7, 2010 — Denverite Ken Wolf, principal investor in Ocho Tulum, a 22-room boutique hotel in Tulum, Mexico, filed a lawsuit in the Mexican Federal Courts on Dec. 22, 2009. According to Mexican attorneys for Wolf, Teresa Jimenez and Octavio Guitierrez, Case 1939/09 to determine rightful ownership of the property seized by the Garza Ponce family of Monterrey, Mexico will be heard by Federal Judge Arturo Escobedo Ramirez in Quintana Roo.

The filing follows the seizure of the hotel on Dec. 1, 2009, when Mexican state police invaded Ocho Tulum, wearing flak jackets and brandishing automatic weapons, flushing guests and workers from the property. According to Teresa Jimenez, neither Wolf nor her firm received advance notice of the seizure. Jimenez says she was called to Ocho Tulum as the seizure was underway, and reports that she arrived on site with documentation that the land is properly titled to Kaya’s Maya Resort, with a lease allowing Ocho Tulum to operate its hotel, restaurant, spa and yoga center on the property. Uniformed police loaded the contents of the hotel onto two waiting semis before barricading the property with barbed wire.

Guests at Ocho Tulum found their holidays on this, one of the world’s most beautiful stretches of powdered sugar beach, cut short. The $5 million resort sits empty since the seizure.

Until this seizure, Ocho Tulum ranked as one of the Top Two destinations on Trip Advisor for Tulum. The 2-year-old hotel was featured in the New York Times Travel Section on Aug. 9, 2009 as a destination not to miss. To read the New York Times review of

New Years Eve In A Melbourne Hotel

Although Melbourne doesnt have Sydneys spectacular harbour as a backdrop, the New Years Eve celebrations rival Sydneys in their size and organisation. Melbourne is host to the free Family Festival along with Midnight fireworks and a variety of other free events and entertainment.

The festival includes carnival rides, roving performers, childrens workshops and activities along with a live show on the main stage featuring well known Australian performers. Visitors are encouraged to bring along a picnic dinner and relax on the grass while enjoying the celebrations around them. The evening concludes with a countdown to the spectacular 9.15pm family fireworks display. Book some nearby Melbourne accommodation, take the kids back to bed and watch the midnight fireworks from your balcony.

The main event is of course the midnight fireworks display that runs from the top of the Melbourne CBD to the docklands and can be viewed from anywhere with a good view of the city skyline. Alexandra Gardens and Birrarung Marr are the two main outdoor venues for the evenings celebrations and both offer great vantage points to view the midnight fireworks.

Both venues are near to a range of Melbourne accommodation including several luxury Melbourne hotels, though booking early is essential as many Melbourne hotels book out months in advance.

Federation Square is another popular destination for New Years Eve and hosts a free night of entertainment and cool beats. The free event boasts an eclectic collection of local talent with

The Real Score About Yor Health Australia

Recently, there is some news about YOR Health Australia saying that the company is a scam. However, especially in the internet, it is difficult to separate fact from fiction in the digital age. Searching for the real truth about something in the internet is like finding a needle in the haystack. Indeed it is easy to look for something online and accept them as truth. Nonetheless, one should be careful in believing something as truth because in the internet, it is quite difficult to decipher which kind of information are coming from credible and trustworthy sources.

The issue about YOR Health Australia is absolutely not a pyramid scheme. While pyramid schemes are illegal, YOR company is a direct seller, multi-level marketer or a network marketer. These terms are usually misused and often related to scams and fraudulent business. The company actually operates using the four basic methods in marketing products which include retailing, multi-level marketing, referral to friends and families and direct sales. These methods of moving products are actually legit since it only essentially requires chains of recruitments and consumptions to purport income.
