Some of Mexico’s most well-known tourist hotspot, Cancun Tulum, and Riviera Maya, aim to welcome international travelers by June 8-10, according to Mexico News Daily.
The Quintana Roo tourism board (the state in which the destinations are located) told Riviera Maya News that this reopening will coincide with resumption of flights from the U.S., Canada, and Europe to the area and that it expects travel to initially center around weddings and conventions. It says that new hygiene protocols will be put in place.
Cancun and other destinations in Quintana Roo are also offerings free overnight says and other steep discounts to incentivize tourists to visit this year.
According to Travel + Leisure, Los Cabos similarly announced a phased reopening plan, which includes putting in place a ‘Clean Point’ quality certification for cleaning measures that hotels, restaurants, and tour providers must obtain. Phase 1, which started June, allows for limited travel while these new health and safety protocols are enforced, while phase 2, which is the opening of the airport’s international terminal, is targeted for July.
