A building is being built on a hilltop in San Marcos, southern Mexico.
The first floor is being erected on a slope and the roof is being covered with scaffolding.
The building is set to become a luxury hotel.
The plan is to turn the hilltop into a private resort, with villas and condominiums, a gymnasium and a swimming pool.
However, the construction of the hillside is proving a costly undertaking, especially in the midst of the ongoing economic crisis.
