Cancun back a year after Hurricane Wilma

Using similar techniques to those in Dubai to build the Palms Islands, Cancun has finished rebuilding the coral white sand beaches of its shores. Using sand from as much as 20 miles offshore, ships pumped the new shoreline to replace almost all of the loss due to Hurricane Wilma. It's been a success and quick recovery with an added bonus - the shores are now bigger than before.
