Covid-19 Protocols For Puerto Vallarta Semana Santa 2021. Secretary General of the Government Health Board Juan Enrique Ibarra Pedroza announced the Covid-19 restrictions for Puerto Vallarta for Semana Santa 2021. These restrictions are in effect only from March 29- April 2, 2021.
- Puerto Vallarta bars and restaurants must close at 11pm during the period.
- Puerto Vallarta beaches can open from 5 am to 5 pm during the period.
- Puerto Vallarta hotels remain open with a maximum capacity of 66%.

The governor of Jalisco, Enrique Alfaro, earlier this year promised that there would no longer be any “emergency button” and restrictions will only be announced in advance on 3 dates: Semana Santa, Mother’s Day and election day. This is the second year Semana Santa festivities have been restricted. Last year, when the pandemic practically began, authorities ordered a total quarantine and asked travelers not to leave home for the holiday.
