COVID 19 Information for Travelers in

Puerto Vallarta

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Travel Update

Updated July 3rd, 2020
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 25 percent capacity. Hotel swimming pools, beach clubs, gyms and restaurants are permitted to open. Spas remain closed. 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 and cafes that apply established sanitation and safety protocol 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. Bars remain closed, until the destination exits its current phase of the reopening process.

All residents and visitors are encouraged to maintain social distancing practices when outdoors and use a mask when social distancing is not possible. Stores, public roads, and businesses previously deemed non-essential that are linked to supply chains are allowed to operate at 50 percent of capacity. Select businesses that do not generate crowds and adhere to social distancing guidelines will also be permitted to open.

The U.S.-Mexico border will remain shut down to non-essential vehicular and pedestrian traffic through July 21 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Connectivity has improved in a notable way since last week, as outlined below.
