Mexico resorts plan reopening June 1?

Recommended Posts

Many resorts in Los Cabos, Playa del Carmen, Tulum, Puerto Vallarta & Punta de Mita are making plans to reopen on June 1.  Hopefully they will be able to do so with modifications, so I would assume the US-Mexico border crossings will reopen and begin issuing FMMs and TIPs?

They will open the 3 borders - US, Canada, and Mexico -  officially on May 20th. at land crossing. International flight were not restricted. You could fly in and get a FMM tourist card. TIPS were being given and FMM tourist cards were being given all along - unofficially - it was reported by some posters. Mexico agreed to cooperate with the US on this but really did it half-assed.

COVID-19 Related Travel Restrictions across the U.S. Borders with Canada and Mexico

  • The United States will temporarily limit inbound land border crossings from Canada and Mexico to “essential travel”.
  • This action does not prevent U.S. citizens from returning home.
  • These restrictions are temporary and went into effect on March 21, 2020. They will remain in effect through 11:59 pm on May 19, 2020.  This decision has been coordinated with the Governments of Mexico and Canada.
  • The following categories do not fall within the definition of “essential travel:” 
    • Individuals traveling for tourism purposes, such as sightseeing, recreation, gambling, or attending cultural events in the United States.
  • Who is considered an “essential” traveler? 
    • Citizens and lawful permanent residents returning to the United States.
    • Individuals traveling for medical purposes (e.g., to receive medical treatment in the United States).
    • Individuals traveling to attend educational institutions.
    • Individuals traveling to work in the United States (e.g., individuals working in the agriculture industry who must travel between the United States and Canada or Mexico in furtherance of such work).
    • Individuals traveling for emergency response and public health purposes (e.g., government officials or emergency responders entering the United States to support federal, state, local, tribal, or territorial government efforts to respond to COVID-19 or other emergencies).
    • Individuals engaged in lawful cross-border trade (e.g., truck drivers supporting the movement of cargo between the United States and Canada and Mexico).
    • Individuals engaged in official government travel or diplomatic travel.
    • Individuals engaged in military-related travel or operations.
    • The United States is coordinating closely with Canada and Mexico to protect our citizens while minimizing adverse economic impacts.
    • Q&A

      Q:  What will this mean for airline travel and other travel across the border?

      A:  This action does not apply to air, rail, or sea travel at this time, but does apply to commuter rail and ferry travel."

The federal health update tonight documented that Cancún peaked this weekend; however, Veracruz hasn't hit the apex of its curve yet and Jalisco is delayed--we now are not anticipated to peak until June 11--more than a month from now.  Add 61 days from then till we get back to Fase 1...the west coast of Jalisco may miss the 2020 season. Monterrey, NL is on the same schedule as Jalisco, so that may be problematic for land travel trying to make its way to Jalisco.

Ironically just before all this got rolling our kids took us to one of those all inclusive mega hotel places in Huatulco.  Thinking back on it I can't imagine how a place like that can possibly function even with minimal requirements for social distancing and mask wearing.  There is just constant human contact and proximity in these places.  Truthfully we didn't much care for it because of this, big crowds are just not our style.

Until this thing is really under control, and that means a vaccine or so many people getting it that herd immunity occurs among the survivors. I wouldn't even walk in the front door of one of these places.
