“Boats in Quintana Roo Sail Again at 65% Capacity After Hurricane Scare”

The nautical industry in Quintana Roo is back in action, currently operating at 65% capacity. Ricardo Muleiro López, the head of Nautical Associates of Quintana Roo, revealed that approximately 150 boats had been secured in the Nichupté Lagoon mangroves in preparation for Hurricane Beryl.

Despite the harsh weather conditions, no damage was reported to the boats, and most have already returned to their original locations. However, the nautical sector has encountered challenges due to unfavorable weather, resulting in 60 days of port closures this year alone. This represents a 30% increase in impact compared to the same period last year.

The resulting economic losses have significantly impacted the industry's supply chain, affecting everything from ticket sales to transfers and gratuities. Catamaran trips to Isla Mujeres, a popular tourist activity, were notably affected.

Nevertheless, the Integral Port Administration of Quintana Roo announced that some ports were open for both larger and smaller vessels, facilitating the resumption of nautical activities. The industry is currently operating at 65% capacity and is hopeful of making up for some of the lost days in the remaining part of the week.
