More than 70 partiers between 16 and 23 were caught by police socializing at a Yucatán beach house, ignoring coronavirus protocols.

State officials shut down the party in Chicxulub Puerto, local media reported while dubbing the guests covidiotas. Underage drinking was also detected at the party.

Both the owner of the house and the organizer of the event will be fined, police told Sipse.
