Nearly 30 tourists evicted from Tulum cenote, failing to comply with municipal quarantine

Tulum, Q.R. — Authorities in Tulum say a group of tourists were evicted from a cenote after failing to abide by municipal restrictions regarding social distancing and non-essential travel.

The municipal government closed an abandoned ranch, which is located about six kilometers from the town along the road to Cobá. They say it was shut down after they discovered nearly 30 Argentine tourists visiting a cenote located on the ranch.

The Saturday afternoon operation was led by Vicencio Méndez, the Director General de Seguridad Pública, who instructed the site shut and the tourists evicted for not complying with the coronavirus quarantine and for violating mobility restrictions.
