CanadaAnother travel alert has been issued to caution travellers against utilizing ferry services in Quintana Roo and this time it is Canada.

 

The government of Canada has followed the example of the United States that had issues it own warning last week that prohibited government employees from utilizing ferries that operate between Cozumel and Playa del Carmen.

 

These warnings come after a major explosion in Playa del Carmen on 21st February aboard a ferry that was operated by Barcos Caribe and also the discovery last Thursday of explosive devices on a different vessel that was operated by the same company.

 

On Friday, the government of Canada had updated the Safety and Security section of the travel advisory of Mexico and cautioned citizens to steer clear of tourist ferry services in the region till further notice.

 

The advisory also observed that some cruise lines have canceled excursions using ferry services in Playa del Carmen.

 

It urged travellers to be careful and monitor regional media including social media.

 

Mexican authorities have been investigating the incidents in collaboration with the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation. Meanwhile, Barcos Caribe rejected a claim on Saturday by the Quintana Roo government that the explosive devices discovered last week had been planted by the company.

 

It also rejected the report of the authorities that 26 people were injured in the explosion of 21st February.

 

The actual number was 31 as per the operations manager Jefferson Marin Flores.
