QCOSTARICA – It was around noon Wednesday, after thirteen hours of travel starting in Costa Rica, the first 180 of the Cuban migrants stranded in the country arrived in Mexico and now in possession of a 20 day transit visa, allowing them passage to the final destination, the U.S. border.

“We anticipate that the evaluation of the test run is successful and gives the opportunity to dialogue and coordinate the departure of more persons still in our country,” say Kathya Rodriguez, director of immigration.

Representatives from Panama, Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Mexico, Belize and Costa Rica and members of the International Organization For Migration, will now meet to discuss the plan.

It is still unclear when the second group will be leaving.

It was 10:30pm Tuesday night when the 180 Cubans left by air from the Liberia (Guanacaste) international airport on an Avianca flight for San Salvador, El Salvador and then by bus to Guatemala and the Mexico border.

Almost 8.000 Cuban migrants continue stranded in Costa Rica since mid-November when Nicaragua closed its borders to them.
