I just came across this in another forum and thought I would pass it alongs.
Hi Claiborne -
We wanted to pass on some information to cruisers sailing from Florida
(or any other U.S. location) to Isla Mujeres, Mexico
The Port Captain
in Isla Mujeres is now requiring boats coming from the U.S. to have a notarized crew list - in other words, a crew list that is drawn up and notarized in the U.S. prior to departure, similar to an exit zarpe from other countries. This is a relatively new requirement; we're not sure when it went into effect. Four boats arrived in Isla Mujeres from Key West
over this past weekend, and none of us had a notarized crew list because we were not aware of this requirement. The Port Captain
said he would let it go this time, but the next time we would be fined.
Thanks for your assistance in disseminating this information. We are trying to let folks know via the Cruiseheimers Net and other avenues.
