The health and safety of our residents and visitors is a priority, and Puerto Vallarta Tourism is working closely with health and government officials for access to the most accurate and timely information regarding COVID-19.
The World Health Organization has declared a global pandemic and travelers from the United States and Canada have been ordered to avoid all non-essential international travel until further notice. As part of national mandates issued in response to the COVID-19 global pandemic, Puerto Vallarta has limited tourism services through April 30. Beaches, public spaces, shopping malls, and nightclubs will be closed during this time, and organized tours are not available. Hotels that remain in operation should be used only by those with essential business and not by tourists. Hotels that remain open are required to suspend many services including access to swimming pools, bars, gyms, beach clubs, and private beaches.
Mexico’s Deputy Health Minister, Hugo Lopez-Gatell, has asked all residents and visitors throughout the country, including Puerto Vallarta, to stay indoors through April 30 and only leave when necessary to help reduce the spread of COVID-19. Senior citizens, pregnant women, and people with chronic respiratory or degenerative diseases are advised against going outside. Government offices will remain open with limited staff available to assist citizens. As dictated by the U.S. and Canadian federal governments, citizens of both countries currently in the Puerto Vallarta should arrange for immediate return unless they are prepared to stay in Mexico indefinitely. Airlines are operating with reduced frequency, but a limited number of direct flights to the United States and Canada are still available from Puerto Vallarta’s Licenciado Gustavo Díaz Ordaz International Airport (PVR) and via connections at Mexico City International Airport (MEX).
Travelers currently in Puerto Vallarta are encouraged to contact their travel advisor, tour operator, airline, hotel manager, or travel insurance company immediately for information on arranging return travel to the United States and Canada. Travelers with upcoming travel plans should contact their travel advisor, tour operator, airline, hotel manager, or travel insurance company immediately to discuss options for rescheduling or cancellation.
Some Puerto Vallarta hotels have temporarily suspended operations due to COVID-19. This list will be updated on a regular basis.
