Centro Caribe Sports inspection visits to potential new hosts for the 2022 Central American and Caribbean Games have been postponed because coronavirus-related travel restrictions.
A Future Venues Commission had been due to visit El Salvador's capital San Salvador and Mayagüez in Puerto Rico this month.
Both have come forward to stage the 2022 Central American and Caribbean Games after Panama withdrew as host in July because of the coronavirus pandemic.
"We have welcomed the wise suggestion of the Interim President of the Future Venues Commission, Jimena Saldaña, to postpone the visits to El Salvador and Puerto Rico," said Centro Caribe Sports President Luis Mejía Oviedo.
Oviedo, an International Olympic Committee member and until recently head of the Dominican Republic Olympic Committee, cited "the restrictive sanitary measures recently imposed" for calling off the visits.
Saldaña, Henry Núñez and Carlos Cisnero - plus Oviedo and Centro Caribe Sports Secretary General Eduardo Álvarez - had been due to visit San Salvador from January 24th to 26th.
A trip to Mayagüez was scheduled for January 27th to 29th.
Mayagüez hosted the event in 2010, and would largely be able to use the same facilities, while San Salvador did so in 2002 and 1935.
A previous timeline for choosing a new host of the 2022 Central American and Caribbean Games anticipated a decision being made by the end of this month, although that would be appear to be unlikely given the Future Venues Commission wants to visit both Mayagüez and San Salvador beforehand.
