This is the testimony of one of the tourists affected by the traffic at the Cancun airport.
After having enjoyed the Mexican Caribbean for a few days, the “travel blogger” Carlos Salmeron Villarreal, was also one of the thousands of tourists affected during the traffic chaos to access the Cancun airport, which occurred on Wednesday, December 21.
During his journey to the airport to take his flight back to Guadalajara, the “blogger” never imagined that his trip would end that way, so he decided to document his experience and share it through his Tik Tok account.
In the video, it can be seen that the family’s transport stopped at the height of the Fonatur monument on Kukulkan boulevard, 11 kilometers from the Iberostar Selections hotel where they were staying and 4.4 kilometers from the airport.
“We made the decision to walk, the traffic was completely stop… Take your time if you come to Cancun, we decided to walk, traffic is totally stopped… I don’t know who thought of stopping the bridge works, it’s complicated by these dates.”, are some of the phrases that can be heard saying.
A danger to the family
Similarly, Carlos can be seen carrying his family’s suitcases and Nallely, his wife, walking accompanied by her eldest son Tiago, while carrying Bastian (the youngest) in the stroller on the edge of the boulevard.
Cars, vans and transport buses passed at high speed a few meters from the family that hurried the pace to get to the airport and even managed to capture the moment in which even two units of the tour operator companies Canada Transfer and Otium Internacional they almost collide near them because they want to get out of the traffic.
“We had to get off the, we don’t know if we’ll get to take the flight… Those who come from abroad, ups!, what a bad image they get,” he said.
After an hour and a half, the family traveled more than 4 kilometers on foot to reach Terminal 2 where their Volaris flight would depart. Despite having arrived exhausted and sweaty to check their luggage, they managed to arrive 40 minutes before their flight.
