The Governor of the State, Enrique Alfaro Ramírez on May 27, 2020 stated that Puerto Vallarta beaches and bars will not reopen June 1 2020.  All beaches, nightclubs and bars, and public spaces will continue to be closed until further notice. There will be a meeting in 10 days with tourism officials to discuss the new norm of tourism. However some hotels are reopening June 1 with the exception of their common areas and pools.  Many Puerto Vallarta restaurants are also open for dine in seating with health and safety protocols.  The governor also indicated that tourist activities are one of the last to start their reactivation since, due to their nature and characteristics, they can generate a higher level of risk for COVID-19.

International air line passengers and aircrew members arriving at and departing from Mexican airports may be subject to health screenings, including temperature checks.  Those exhibiting symptoms may be subject to additional health screenings and/or asked to quarantine voluntarily.  Travelers entering Mexico by land from the United States may be denied admission if the purpose of their visit is considered non-essential.  We recommend that travelers carry evidence of the essential nature of their visit and evidence of their resident status in Mexico, if applicable.  Travelers entering Mexico via land may be subject to temperature checks and additional health screening.  Travelers may experience significant delays and face the possibility of being returned to the United States or asked to quarantine in Mexico.  At some U.S. ports of entry, operating hours have changed; please review CBP’s Port of Entry wait times web page for additional information. 

On April 3, Mexican Tourism and Health officials instructed hotels to cancel new and existing reservations and close for non-essential business.  All accommodation services, including hotels, hostels, online platforms, and travel agencies, will cease receiving reservations and will reschedule all reservations.  Guests who require accommodation due to essential business activities are permitted to stay in hotels with a maximum occupancy of 15 percent and may be asked to provide an employer letter certifying the nature of their business.  Other non-resident foreign citizens currently in hotel accommodations have been requested to return home immediately.  Individuals showing respiratory symptoms will be referred to health authorities.  As a reminder, the U.S. government does not pay for lodging or other expenses incurred due to travel disruptions abroad.
