Information is updated as it becomes available

The state of Jalisco, including Puerto Vallarta, is proceeding with its COVID-19 recovery plan. Beaches located immediately in front of hotels are open for guests, public beaches are already open, however, it is recommended to access them following preventive measures and hotels are permitted to operate at 50 percent capacity. Hotel swimming pools, beach clubs, spas, gyms and restaurants are permitted to open. All hotels are required to follow cleanliness and sanitation protocol established and monitored by local authorities, in addition to protocol required by their parent company or ownership.

Restaurants, cafes, bars and nightclubs that apply established sanitation and safety protocols continue to operate at 50 percent of their capacity. Cleaning, sanitizing, and disease prevention measures remain in place at Puerto Vallarta International Airport, the cruise port, on public transportation, in supermarkets, and in government offices which are providing limited services. The state of Jalisco has achieved the World Travel and Tourism Council’s “Safe Travels” protocol by meeting globally standardized hygiene and sanitation standards at its facilities.

Puerto Vallarta’s iconic Malecon waterfront promenade is not yet fully open to the public, only access points to restaurants and shops.

Theaters, art galleries, museums and other cultural activities, outdoor areas for carnivals, fairs and open-air cinemas are open, as well as social events in this same modality, recreational parks and shopping malls, among others.

All residents and visitors are encouraged to maintain social distancing practices when outdoors and use a mask when social distancing is not possible.
