Taxi drivers even blocked one of the main roads leading to the hotel district in the resort city of Cancun Monday. That forced some tourists to walk or catch rides in police pickups to get their flights out, or check-in.

The State Department advised travelers that "past disputes between these services and local taxi unions have occasionally turned violent, resulting in injuries to U.S. citizens in some instances."
