Cancun, the Mexican city known for its beautiful beaches and bustling nightlife, has been facing a traffic light problem. Citizens have complained about the lack of maintenance and even the absence of functional traffic lights in the city. However, there is some good news as the municipal government has announced that they will be spending 100 million pesos to change the traffic lights in Cancun.

While this may be a relief for drivers, it's important to note that using a rented car to commit crimes in Cancun will now be punished with jail. The city has also approved the return of the breathalyzer this month to keep drivers safe on the roads.

In other news, vacation rental hosts in Quintana Roo, where Cancun is located, must now obtain an operating license from Airbnb. The city is also trying to recover Brazilian tourism with a new plan while expropriating land to finish work on Chac Mool.

However, the Easter week was not so great for Cancun's restauranteurs, as they left restaurants without customers for all-inclusive hotels. But on a more positive note, the Wellness Caravan has arrived in Cancun, offering free services to locals and tourists alike.

The city's popularity as an international tourist destination continues to grow, with more than 40 works and projects being invested in by Aguakan. And in sports news, Cancún FC beat Pumas Tabasco 4-1 and clings to the playoffs in the Clausura 2023 Tournament of the Liga de Expansión MX.

Despite some troubles, Cancun remains a sunny and exciting city that attracts millions of visitors each year.
