ISLA MUJERES, Q. Roo – After 18 days at sea, another makeshift boat carrying Cuban refugees has landed on the shores of Quintana Roo.
Around 6 a.m. Wednesday April 13, local authorities were alerted to the arrival of a homemade raft that landed at Isla Mujeres, several kilometers from Cancun’s mainland.
On the raft were 12 Cuban passengers consisting of nine men and three women.
The boat, made of wood, steel and rubber, used a large piece of cloth as a sail to travel the 18 days it took to land on Mexican territory.
Those aboard the craft were secured by local Municipal Police and transported to the National Immigration Institute to confirm their status before being sent back to Cuba.
