Cancun Back In Business! Hurricane Beryl Caused Minimal Damages, Say Authorities

The alluring Cancun Hotel Zone strictly implemented protection recommendations suggested by the state and federal governments, as a result, Hurricane Beryl caused minimal damages, authorities have informed.

As soon as the hurricane left the city, Civil Protection officers and some firefighters patrolled the area, including Kukulkan Boulevard, to carry out some drainage work since the area had a flood (up to 8 inches).

The electric grid resisted the strong winds and nobody lost their lives or got hurt. Hours later, mobility improved as water drained off the streets. 

Quintana Roo only reported “minor inconveniences” compared to what happened in other Caribbean destinations such as the island of Grenada.

Proper preventive work was key to protecting the Cancun Hotel Zone, firefighters said. Thanks to this, businesses could reopen by the weekend.

Were There any Affected Beaches In Cancun?

Officials from the Federal Maritime-Terrestrial Zone (Zofemat) also inspected the seven Cancun beaches and determined that only some palm trees and some poorly built wooden beach bars had fallen.

The most affected beaches included Playa Delfines and San Miguelito, both located in the Cancun Hotel Zone.

“We checked out the seven public beaches under the supervision of the municipality to determine how much this meteorological phenomenon had impacted them. So far, no significant damages have been reported. Only some fallen palapas and palm trees,” said Zofemat Director, Justo Rocha.

Tourists Can Safely Return, Say Authorities

More than 200 flights were canceled during the passing of Hurricane Beryl. However, airports have already reestablished all regular operations.

“We are reactivating the economy. We want everything to return to normal as soon as possible,” said Quintana Roo governor, Mara Lezama, after making sure Tulum did not endure big damages.

“Storms also pass,” said Lezama on X, as she invited tourists to return to enjoy the Mexican Caribbean, which, by the way, has seen a significant reduction in sargassum in recent days.
