Cancun, Q.R. — The Ministry of Tourism has provided low-cost hotel accommodations for tourists who remain stranded at the Cancun International Airport due to coronavirus-related travel issues.
Marisol Vanegas Pérez, head of the tourism agency for Quintana Roo says those stranded have been offered ultra-low-cost hotel accommodations on a temporary basis with special consideration for tourists who remain stranded after the closure of some country borders.
She says that the situation is gradually being corrected with some airlines taking charge of returning them to their country of origin. Vanegas Pérez added that there is no scheduled rescue flights, but said that the Ministry of Tourism is very attentive to serve these travelers as well as those who are still arriving from countries that have not restricted travel.
On Thursday, a small shop made sandwiches for a large group of tourists who had been stranded in the Cancun airport since Sunday.
