Room at the inn
The Fiesta Inn will donate 40 rooms for 30 nights to medical and hospital personnel from Yucatan during the contingency.
The hotel’s owner, Grupo Posadas / Fibra UNO, included Yucatan in a national program to offer doctors, nurses, interns and medical assistants rooms so that they do not have to return to their homes and put their relatives at risk.
