Quintana Roo’s Association of Travel Agencies says ferry explosions can affect tourism

After four travel warnings from different countries advising their citizens to be careful during their visit to Quintana Roo, the Mexican Association of Travel Agencies urges government and private initiative to do something about it.

The federal secretary of Tourism, Enrique de la Madrid, considered the warnings issued  by the US Department of State as “cynical and hypocritical”, telling Americans not to take the ferries between Playa del Carmen and Cozumel.

The Quintana Roo state government issued a bulletin announcing that all services are functioning normally, but a large mobilization of Mexican Army and Federal Police agents can be seen around the docks in Playa del Carmen.

With the help of trained dogs, Army and police agents inspect every single boat before the passengers go on board.
