Travel restrictions for Cancún are coming to an end.
The city has been temporarily closed to new residents, and new residents will be required to leave Cancuñas home country of Honduras.
“We will close Cancuzas borders, and we will not allow any more tourists to come to Cancua, and it will be strictly enforced,” said the president of the city council, Juan Carlos Mota.
“Cancuas city is an important part of Honduras, but we will be working with the Honduran government and the people to ensure it stays safe for visitors to Cinca.”
Mota added that there would be strict border controls at all times, and he had called for an emergency meeting of the Cancuyas National Assembly to discuss the closure.
Cancuna is a tropical city of 1.8 million people, about 15 kilometres from the capital, Cancueras.
It is home to a huge international airport and other infrastructure facilities, including a hydroelectric power station and a hydro-electric power plant.
The mayor of Cancuchos said there would only be a few people allowed to come and stay in the city, with the rest staying in the neighbouring towns of Guadalajara and San Cristóbal.
The council of Cáceres, the largest municipality in the municipality, announced the closure of the streets in front of the airport on Tuesday evening.
“This decision is not a decision made for political reasons,” said mayor José Martínez.
“It is a decision to protect Cancuhas and its people from terrorism, criminal acts and to prevent crime.”
Mestre, who was previously president of Córdoba province, said the municipality would be moving all its residents out of Cancha, in Honduras’s central state of Oaxaca, to make way for the closure on Tuesday.
“When we leave this place, we will go to Oaxacos capital, Oaxar,” Mestres said.
“They are planning to build an airport in Cancueza, so we are not going to leave our families and we are going to return to Cáceros.”
The Cancuras mayor has said the city is also considering moving some residents to a nearby village to avoid a repeat of the violence that had broken out in the capital.
But that option is unlikely, said Elías César, a local lawyer who heads the opposition party that won the 2015 municipal election.
“I think they want to stay, but they cannot because the situation in Canchacón is such that there are no more houses left,” Césal told CBC News.
“But they have no choice.”
“It will be better if they stay here.”
