Mexico Subsecretary of Health 4/16/20 extends quarantine until May 30, 2020. They are expecting the peak for the country of Mexico between May 5-10th. Therefore they are extending the quarantine (cuarentena) from the original April 30th through the end of May now. However, communities with low or no transmission of the Covid19 illness MAY be given the go-ahead to return to school and other considered non-essential activities on May 17th. That’s if they maintain this status between now and then. Our municipality is NOT considered a green zone that will be allowed to resume normal business on May 17th. Therefore, as of now, expect to continue the favorable behavior (which they showed through graphs for each state) that has helped control the transmission of Sars-COV-2 (the virus that causes the illness Covid19). The goal is to return to normal business by June 1st if people comply with the rules of this order to “quarantine.

Nayarit Office of Tourism 3/26/20 regarding the closing of Nayarit Beaches.  TRANSLATION courtesy of Paco Ojeda The governor of Nayarit made a statement 3/25/20 calling for controlled access to beaches, not to closing beaches. The statement was misinterpreted. Being weeks away from Semana Santa, hotels panicked. That said, what the Governor seems to want to do is to create awareness among the population and the hotel industry: folks should stay at home. Also, closing beaches is a federal matter, so no state authority can do that. Authorities are not expecting for a sense of “normalcy” to return to the tourism sector until July 2020.  Article https://tribunadelabahia.com.mx/noticias/puerto-vallarta/no-cierran-playas-de-nayarit-pero-se-busca-crear-conciencia-hoteleros-32532

Gabys Restaurant 3/19/2020

I am devasted and still in shock after quickly having to suspend operations of my restaurant It was a difficult but necessary decision made in order to protect our employees and our customers during the current health crisis. My heart is heavy for my employees, their families, my colleagues, and the industry at large. This community is made up of some of the strongest, most hardworking and talented people I know. We will work hard to get through this together and be stronger because of it. My team and I look forward to getting back to doing what we love as soon as we can. Stay Safe & healthy.

Bravos PV -Siam and Poblanos 3/18/2020

To our valued guests,

We are all navigating uncharted territory with really no road map for exactly how we should be operating our business in this COVID-19 environment. What we can all agree on and understand is that the health and safety of our team members, guests, and our community is of the greatest importance. With all that we know based on guidance from our municipal and federal mandates, we have made the decision to close Bravos-Siam and Poblanos restaurants this evening March 18th at 10pm until we feel it is safe to re-open. Of course, we wish we could continue to do business as normal, keeping our people working and continuing to offer hospitality to our guests. However, it is absolutely necessary that we do the responsible thing and keep people safe.
The story will continue to evolve and at some point, while we have no idea when this may be, we will soon be able to pick up where we left off. We are relying upon todays very difficult decision and the collective sacrifices of everyone of our team members in the strongest possible position to do so. We will continue to lead with our hearts and our minds. This is a dynamic situation and we know we will continue to have to adjust. We cannot wait until we can welcome you back with open doors. Take care and be good to one another.

Sincerely
Michael Boufford
Para nuestros valiosos invitados,
Todos estamos navegando por un territorio inexplorado sin realmente una
hoja de ruta para saber exactamente cómo debemos operar nuestro negocio en este entorno COVID-19. En lo que todos podemos estar de acuerdo y comprender es que la salud y la seguridad de los miembros de nuestro equipo, los invitados y nuestra comunidad es de suma importancia. Con todo lo que sabemos basado en la orientación de nuestros mandatos municipales y federales, hemos tomado la decisión de cerrar los restaurantes Bravos-Siam y Poblanos esta noche del 18 de marzo a las 10 pm hasta que consideremos que es seguro volver a abrir. Por supuesto, desearíamos poder seguir haciendo negocios normalmente, manteniendo a nuestra gente trabajando y ofreciendo hospitalidad a nuestros huéspedes. Sin embargo, es absolutamente necesario que hagamos lo responsable y mantengamos a las personas a salvo.
La historia continuará evolucionando y, en algún momento, aunque no tenemos idea de cuándo puede ser, pronto podremos retomar donde lo dejamos. Confiamos en la decisión muy difícil de hoy y los sacrificios colectivos de todos los miembros de nuestro equipo en la posición más fuerte posible para hacerlo. Continuaremos liderando con nuestros corazones y nuestras mentes. Esta es una situación dinámica y sabemos que seguiremos teniendo que adaptarnos. No podemos esperar hasta que podamos darle la bienvenida con las puertas abiertas. Cuídate y sé bueno el uno con el otro.

Sinceramente
Michael Boufford

Blondies PV 3/18/2020

To our friends, neighbors and visitors to Vallarta, sadly the Corona Virus and it’s effects have reached our shores. The government has decided to be proactive, asking bars, clubs, casinos and entertainment venues to close in order to prevent the inevitable spread of the virus. As of today, both Blondies and Los Otros Blondies will close until further notice. Until then, stay safe, stay home and let’s kick this virus to the curb!
P.S. Technically our apparel and beach gear boutique can remain open, but we will do so by appointment only. Please contact us if you are interested in a personal shopping experience.
Thank you for your continued support, ❤️ Shawn, Dino and the Blondies Crew

ACT 2 PV 3/18/2020

It is with deep sadness that we have decided to make today, Wednesday, March 18th, our closing night of the season. When the virus first hit Mexico we decided to cut seating by 50% way before we were required to. We then decided to close on Sunday – this was before bars and events were told to close. According to the government we are allowed to operate, but given how fast this is moving, we have decided to put our staff, performers and clients first.

We are sorry for any inconvenience this has caused you. You can contact Joss Olmos for a refund. We will ask you to consider donating back your ticket purchase to the Act2Pv Emergency Fund. Every peso collected will be used to pay and feed employees of Act2PV for as long as possible.

We thank you for a great season and we promise to bring Entertainment back to PV as soon as it is safe.

We pray that our actions will help expedite the end of this horrible virus and we hope that we can re-open as soon as possible. Thank you to all of our loyal patrons who have made this the best season ever.

The Palm Cabaret and Bar

Due to the COVID19 situation in the world in this moment we have to take the hard decision in the best interest of all, our staff, our performers, and mostly you, our clients that it is time to close our doors and call it a season.

We would like to thank our clients and all the artists who have helped make this one of the best seasons ever.

Bitter sweet as it is, we know this is the right thing to do. Any tickets purchased for upcoming shows will be credited for next season, or if you would like to donated it to the performers it will be appreciated, we hope you consider that option therefore it will help the artists financially survive this troubled time. In the final case money can be refunded, we also appreciate your patience, we will answer all your emails.

We wish everyone safe and equally important healthy days ahead.

Thank you for understanding.

INCANTO PV

Dear Patrons, Colleagues, and Friends,

Out of an abundance of caution and concern for Vallarta’s public health, we feel it is best for Incanto to close effective tomorrow, March 18, 2020. We know that the government (local and global) directive at this time is encouraging everyone to stay home and, at least locally, allows only for small gatherings of 50 or less but we really feel that now is the time to make the call, no matter how many are allowed. It feels like the right thing to do based on our careful watch over the past few day’s events and recommendations from multiple sources and authorities.

We have ideas to bring you some Facebook live broadcasts from the piano bar with just our artists and minimal staff present and we’ll let you know about those in the coming days.

If you’ve purchased tickets online for Incanto shows, you’ll receive refunds automatically. If you purchased at the door, we’re offering show credits for the future by email. If you’d like to donate your ticket purchases to the artists, we are happy to hear that too and will manage that immediately. If you wish to receive refunds, we’ll coordinate that too. Email us at Incantopv@gmail.com to arrange, no matter your choice.

For now, everyone please stay safe and wise in your decisions with public gatherings. Thanks for your support and we appreciate your understanding. We’ll gather again as soon as it is safe to do so, the sooner the better!

Sincerely,

Tracy Parks, Incanto

Olas Altas Farmers Markets 3/18/2020Home Tours

Given current guidelines on gatherings, and out of an abundance of caution, Tours and IFC leadership have decided to end the Home Tours season effective today March 17. Thank you all , our home owners who offer up their homes for our tours, our volunteers who staff the tours, and our guests for making this great season of charitable fundraising possible! https://www.facebook.com/IFCToursforVallarta/posts/1280658608797514

CASA CUPULA 

Dear Friends of Casa Cupula ,

At Casa Cupula we are closely monitoring information about COVID-19 and the coronavirus. Thus far no cases have been reported in Vallarta, but obviously the virus circulates everywhere so precautions are warranted. Puerto Vallarta has a warm climate and in our open air setting the likelihood of transmission may be lower than in cooler drier climates with enclosed spaces. Some guests have extended their stays to “work from home” at Casa Cupula and we welcome them. Others have postponed their visits and we will change their reservations at no charge during this crisis.

Casa Cupula, Pump Gym & Spa and the Pool Club remain open with normal operating hours. We have instituted additional deep cleaning procedures to keep rooms and common areas clean from viruses of any type. We are disinfecting daily all touch surfaces including door knobs, telephones, handles of all types as well as surfaces like countertops. We are leaving Lysol in each room in case guests would like to spray additional areas or personal belongings. We suggest keeping doors open as much as possible to allow fresh air in.

At our pools we ask guests to use clean towels to cover all seating areas. We have hand sanitizer available throughout the property. Our employees have been instructed on prevention techniques and hygiene.

Mexico and Jalisco state have cancelled “massive events”, but have not yet closed venues. Out of an abundance of caution we have temporarily canceled our Saturday Adam & Steve pool parties. The Pool Club, however, will remain open seven days a week noon to 7pm for hotel guests and to the public. As an open-air space there is plenty of room to maintain social distancing and enjoy the sunshine and fresh ocean breeze. We have also temporarily cancelled our Sunday Brunch but will continue to offer the regular breakfast menu on Sundays. If you have any questions or suggestions, please email info@casacupula.com.

The LGBT community has suffered through and survived HIV/AIDS, so we know how serious this can be. Unlike that scary time, we already have facts on transmission and who is at risk, and should not panic. Like that time, we all need to rise to the occasion to support one another and not scapegoat anyone. We are all in this together. Casa Cupula was founded in 2002; we survived swine flu and the great recession so we will survive coronavirus and thrive afterward.

Please use the recommended precautions for hygiene and maintain social distancing. Older folks, those with compromised immune systems, heart disease, diabetes or respiratory issues must take isolation very seriously and the rest of us should check that they are okay and offer our love and support. We wish the best to all our guests and friends.

Sincerely yours, Don Pickens Principal, Milagro Properties https://www.casacupula.com

 

H20 Festival

We have received notice from the H2O Festival venues in Puerto Vallarta that the state of Jalisco, which contains Puerto Vallarta, has begun to restrict social gatherings in the state, closing schools, etc. We have had lengthy meetings with the ownership of these venues and have agreed that it would be prudent in light of the evolving guidance from the CDC and WHO, as well as the increasing effort by local government authorities to restrict gatherings, to reschedule H2O Puerto Vallarta for later this year.After reviewing the options available, we are excited to announce that we will be rescheduling H2O Festival to the weekend of November 20-22nd. We are excited about this weekend as it leads into the Thanksgiving Holiday week, allowing people to potentially expand their stay in Puerto Vallarta to enjoy Thanksgiving in Mexico, as well. We will be exploring organizing possible dinner options for Thanksgiving and sharing that information through our social media and website, as well. All tickets purchased for H2O Festival will be revised with the rescheduled dates of the event, and more information regarding using your tickets will be shared going forward.The Almar Resort Luxury LGBT Beach Front Experience is going through the process of setting up the code for H2O hotel reservations for our new dates, and we will send out notice when this is ready. We will be updating our web pages and social media with any lineup changes that we will have to make to accommodate this change, as well. We are committed to retaining as much of our original line-up as possible, and promise that any changes that must be made due to artist scheduling conflicts will reflect our goal of bringing the best and most exciting lineup to Puerto Vallarta for H2O Festival Weekend! TRAVEL CHANGES: The airlines are allowing free changes to reserved travel prior to the end of the month. Tickets are valid for their full value for future purchases up to 1 year from the original date of issue or through December 31, 2020, whichever date comes first. We encourage you to please reach out to your airline and begin the process of rescheduling. For those of you who may still decide to travel to Mexico during our original March dates, please let us know. We will share information from the hotel and venues regarding their plans and activities that may be of interest to you.Thank you for your patience during this stressful time. We look forward to ultimately seeing you on the dancefloor and enjoying Puerto Vallarta together this November!

Es posible que esto no detenga el intercambio de coronavirus, pero es igualmente # importante y una # especial responsabilidad que tenemos para todos los invitados y amigos de #ReduceRisk. Nuestro esfuerzo es ayudar a #SlowTheSpread de la infección del virus al no exponerlo a tantas personas desconocidas y viajeros de tantos lugares sin su invitación exclusiva.

# PiñataHotel permanecerá #Abierto para # Huéspedes y la ciudad todavía está muy operativa, pero comparte conciencia pública e información sobre Coronavirus.

Gracias, Hotel Piñata
