By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: On May 14, the Mexican Navy announced that it seized a shipment of cocaine off the coast of Quintana Roo.

According to local reports, the Mexican Navy found 153 packages containing a suspicious white powder, with a total weight of more than 3 tons, were seized.

In addition, the patrol intercepted a smaller vessel that had 18 drums of hydrocarbon.

Authorities detained 3 people who were on board.

Last year, Infobae México reported that the Mexican-Caribbean area is of utmost importance for connections between Mexican and Colombian drug cartels due to the shipment of tons of cocaine from the South American country, using clandestine runways built in Tulum and Cancun.

Since 2020, Semar and the Drug Control Administration (DEA) have identified at least 3 air routes used by the Sinaloa and Jalisco Nueva Generación Cartels (CJNG) to transport illegal substances from Colombia through the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea.

The routes drawn by the authorities start from Ecuador and Venezuela towards Honduras, Belize and Guatemala, which reach the states of Guerrero, Oaxaca, Chiapas and Quintana Roo, where executive aircrafts usually land.
