But at the north end of the bay an even larger building is taking shape, three stories of concrete and timber whose existence has divided the townspeople. It is a hotel, constructed by a controversial businessman to cater to the beginnings of the American tourist trade. It will bring jobs and prosperity to the city -- already more than a hundred men are working on the site, their shirts wrapped round their heads to protect them from the sun.
But some believe it will also destroy the town's traditions and take away the citizens' freedom and self-respect.
As an old man explains to the dog fighter: ''A year from now you will come out of the water and pick up a rake and rake this sand for some tourist to lie out on this beach. But the businessmen will not have you on this beach. Your strength will be used to carry suitcases. They will put you in some neat little suit. He will also fall in love, discover poetry, learn Mexican history and befriend the local street children.
