Earthquake in Central Mexico – September 19. 2017
The following statement was issued by the Mexico Tourism Board regarding the earthquake that rocked Central Mexico earlier this month.
The sympathies of the Mexico Tourism Board, and the entire Mexican tourism industry, go out to those affected by the earthquake in Central Mexico on September 19, 2017. Mexico’s Federal, State and Local Governments have activated response plans in order to support the individuals impacted as well as to assess damages. According to the latest information, damages have been reported in parts of Puebla, Morelos, and Mexico City. Tourist attractions remain open and functioning in these destinations. While the international airports in Mexico City and Puebla suspended operations as a standard precaution yesterday, both airports reopened within 4 hours and are now fully operational. Additionally, we are thankful to report that no other international tourism destinations in Mexico have been affected by the earthquake and are operating normally. Given these facts, there is no reason for visitors to cancel travel plans to Mexico. The Mexico Tourism Board, and the entire tourism industry, are focused on ensuring visitors in affected destinations receive any assistance necessary while continuing with their existing travel plans. Updates on the situation will be shared as new information becomes available.
