Just thinking this likely contributed to the current low number of visitors.

On an average day, not counting Saturdays, there are about 70 flights a day into Cancun from the US and Canada. Of those flights, 7 or so are from/through Houston. This isn't counting all the flights from Europe, South America and other parts of Mexico. So I guess you could see a 10% decrease last week because of Harvey but I think that would be a little high considering all of the other flights especially all the flights connecting through Mexico City.
