Urgent US passport lost in Mexico

Hi. Lost my wife's US passport today. Cancun US consulate is closed right now. Website indicates that we need to make an appointment except for emergency cases.

Anyone know if we can just show up tomorrow without an appointment to get a replacement passport? We are staying in Tulum and it's an expensive cab ride and hence wondering if we should make an appointment before going there. We leave this Saturday and appreciate any input on what are our options to be able to fly back. Thanks in advance.

we are back.

thanks everyone for your valuable tips and support, especially the suggestion to keep a copy. Will definitely do so next visit ...

BTW, we did not notify the consulate of lost passport since we found it before going there. thanks everyone.
