Nothing says it happened on the beach. Other reports I’ve read say it happened in an office.

Here is the report from the link posted above in English using google translate.

pPLAYA DEL CARMEN, MX.- A man between 40 and 50 years old, apparently a seller of nautical services to tourists in Bahía Príncipe Akumal, was found dead Tuesday night in the facilities of this hotel complex.

According to preliminary information , around 21:34 hours, the police received a report about a dead person in that hotel located about four kilometers south of the town of Akumal, belonging to the municipality of Tulum.

Upon arriving, the paramedics found that the man was in the middle of a pool of blood and no longer vital signs.

Everything seems to indicate that the man was killed.

At the moment there is no more information about the identity of this person or the circumstances of his death, although the authorities do not rule out that it is a murder. (Noticaribe | Preliminary information)

Currently at the GBPAkumal.

Been on the beach all day and did our daily walk from Infinty pool to Tulum section right along beach this morning before breakfast. No signs or gossip about this at all?

Will ask around tonight.

"Vague suggestion this happened in Tulum?" B, it happened at the Bahía Príncipe Akumal. I would think people would see the police investigating a crime scene. No?
