Tulum stills stands

Everything is Ok at the Mexican Caribbean.

The turquoise waters of Tulum still glisten and sparkle in the horizon; the sun is still brightly shining, and the weather is simply to die for… Visitors continue enjoying the white sand beaches of Tulum, in the heart of Riviera Maya and everything is running absolutely normal. Under such landscape, it would appear that no one could even imagine that this past January 11th, Mother Nature sadly gave this peaceful town, a couple of shakes…

Last Sunday night an earthquake (of 4.2 on the the Richter scale), took by surprise the town of Tulum. According to The National Seismological Service, this movement was originated on the shores of Oaxaca, but featured no more consequences; in fact this telluric movement was almost imperceptible for the locals.

Following safety protocols, local authorities inspected the buildings of the town and stated everything to be in shape, and no damages were reported.

Victor Hugo Espindola, researcher at the Geophysics Institute of the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM), said that the entire planet’s crust is subject to major pressure, due to constant movements of the tectonic plates.

Speaking of the Yucatan Peninsula this kind of natural phenomenon is almost inexistent, with an extremely low possibility of happening at all! Nonetheless, please rest assure and we can guarantee you’ve nothing to worry about, because Cancun, Playa del Carmen and Tulum are the safest destinations to relax and have fun in!
