“A control center like the one they have at the airport is much needed in Quintana Roo to know how many boats enter and leave Puerto Juarez, Isla Mujeres, Playa del Carmen and Cozumel, in order to have greater safety in navigation”, said Antonio Vargas Aguirre, regional captain of Puerto Juarez.
Vargas Aguirre said that around 4 thousand boats pass through thedifferent marinas on a daily basis, including tourist service providers such as the Jungle Tour, Parachute, and other redreational boats, so the importance of maintaining control of all types of boats and vessels arriving and leaving from different points of the coast of the state of Quintana Roo is vital.
“The monitoring center needs to installed in an observation point that goes from Puerto Juarez to Isla Mujeres, which are 4 and a half miles away from each other, with a watching tower, and featuring radars to be able to assure fluency and safety to navigation” he said.
It should be noted that Isla Mujeres in peak seasons receives 29,000 people per day and around 20,000 tourists move between Playa del Carmen and Cozumel, and this figure is growing every year, as tourism activity increases in Quintana Roo.
For these reasons, Náuticos de Quintana Roo is asking for changes to the Nautical Regulations, in order to avoid losses in the tourist services of the state, and that is why the regional captaincy of Puerto Juarez is asking for a boat control center.
