COZUMEL, Q. Roo — Due to the effects of the Cold Front number 14 of the season, with wind gusts of up to 30 kilometers per hour and the swell, Cozumel’s port has been closed to navigation of smaller vessels for four days already.
César Cepeda Escamilla, in charge of the security area of the National Association of Aquatic and Touristic Operators, explained that the general loss for divers and operators of maritime services exceeds 500 thousand pesos.
He mentioned that some 750 divers are not working, as well as those who offer snorkeling services, which results in a total of 1,200 workers that have not labored for the last four days.
Cepeda Escamilla said he expects the situation to improve during the next 24 hours, since service providers live off this activity and require that income to feed their families.
