Cancun officially reopened for business on June 8, 2020. The reopening of hotels and resorts has been slow. The hotels that were once filled now have mandated limitations on their capacity.
Flights from the United States to Cancun have resumed from a handful of major cities. Some of the hotels have been reopened and are welcoming guests.
Cancun is in the state of Quintana Roo, along with other major tourist destinations including Cozumel, Playa del Carmen, Puerto Morelos, Riviera Maya, Akumal and Tulum. The state recently launched a ‘Mexican Caribbean Clean & Safe Check Certification’ program for the hospitality industry and its workers.
This includes everything from hotels and resorts, to spas, water parks, golf courses, and food and beverage establishments to travel agencies, tour operators and transportation companies. The certification program is there to prove that these companies have implemented health and safety protocols and practices in line to be effective at combatting the spread of COVID-19.
What to Expect When Arriving at Cancun International Airport (CUN) During COVID-19
The state of Quintana Roo has begun implementing a variety of protocols intended to combat the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus and keep both tourists and industry workers safe. The program, called the ‘Mexican Caribbean Clean & Safe Check Certification’, uses a traffic light system, from Red, which is severely limited capacity, to Green, which is 100% capacity.
inbound travelers will be subject to health screenings, including temperature checks, upon their arrival in Mexico, and those exhibiting any symptoms will require additional screenings and could be placed under quarantine.
