Get the latest news from Cancun! From job openings to housing gentrification, weather updates to immigration, stay up-to-date with Cancun's current events.
Attention all Cancun vacationers, brace yourselves for a hot and sunny day in the Mexican Caribbean! That's right, the weather is forecasted to be scorching hot this afternoon, so make sure you pack your sunscreen and stay hydrated.
But before you hit the beach, let's take a look at what's been happening in Cancun. While the airport had a whopping 600 daily operations during Easter week, the number of flights scheduled for April 11 has dropped slightly to 532. Don't worry, though, you'll still be able to catch your flight home!
In other news, some Cancun cab drivers have been caught assaulting Uber drivers in the city. The Quintana Roo government is urging Uber drivers to report any acts of aggression, so if you're taking an Uber in Cancun, make sure to stay alert and stay safe.
Meanwhile, residents of five irregular colonies in Cancun are protesting for better services. They are demanding access to basic amenities such as electricity, water, and sewage. Hopefully, their voices will be heard, and they'll get the services they deserve.
If you're looking for work in Cancun, you're in luck! More than 2,600 job vacancies are currently being offered, with hotels alone opening over 1,000 vacancies. So, brush up on that resume and start your job search now.
In terms of infrastructure, the Mexican government is planning to link Cancun's airport with the Mayan Train station. However, they haven't yet determined the expenditure for this project. We'll have to wait and see what this fifth project in Cancun brings to the table.
On a sadder note, the number of Quintana Roo residents deported from the U.S. has gone up by 47%. It's a tough reality for those who have built a life in the U.S., only to be sent back to Mexico.
Lastly, the cost of housing in Cancun is increasing, and some areas are experiencing gentrification. If you're looking to move to Cancun, be prepared to pay a little extra for housing.
Unfortunately, the hot weather isn't the only threat to the Mexican Caribbean. The intense heat is putting natural areas at risk, and hotspots are threatening NPAs (Natural Protected Areas). Let's hope that measures are taken to preserve these beautiful natural areas for future generations to enjoy.
That's it for now, folks. Stay safe, stay hydrated, and enjoy your time in Cancun!
