Cozumel Pier Security

Security Measures Increased on Cozumel Piers


Port Authority ensures safer piers on Federal routes…..

The Director of the Port Authority, APIQRoo, recently announced that in light of events, still under local and federal investigation, that internal security protocols have been increased on piers in both Playa del Carmen and Cozumel.  The “International Code for the Protection of Ships and Port Facilities” is now in effect, since the route falls under Federal jurisdiction.


In a recent press release, the Director announced that additional surveillance cameras will be installed as well as individuals to monitor and prohibit the introduction of dangerous substances onto either pier, and thus Cozumel as well.

While International Maritime Code has been applied to the cruise ship piers, for quite some time now, since those vessels are engaged in international travel, it will now also apply to the Cozumel Fiscal pier as well as Playa del Carmen.


As part of these new procedures, which are expected to be enacted very shortly, vessels will also now be inspected, in an effort to provide complete protection of passengers.

Aumentan las medidas de seguridad en los muelles de Cozumel

La autoridad portuaria garantiza muelles más seguros en las rutas federales. . .

Hace poco, el director de la autoridad portuaria, APIQRoo, informó que en virtud de los acontecimientos que aún se están bajo investigación local y federal, los protocolos de seguridad interna han aumentado en los muelles tanto de Playa del Carmen como de Cozumel. El “Código Internacional para la Protección de Buques e Instalaciones Portuarias” se encuentra en vigor ya que la ruta compete a la jurisdicción  federal.


En un reciente comunicado de prensa, el director informó que se instalaran cámaras adicionales al igual que personal para vigilar y prohibir la introducción de sustancias peligrosas dentro del muelle y, por ende, Cozumel también.


En tanto que desde hace tiempo el Código Marítimo Internacional se encuentra vigente en los muelles de los buques turísticos, ahora entrará en vigor en el muelle fiscal de Cozumel y en el muelle de Playa del Carmen.


Como parte de éstos nuevos procedimientos que se espera sean establecidos en breve, las embarcaciones también serán inspeccionadas; ello en un esfuerzo para ofrecer protección completa a los pasajeros.
