The Quintana Roo Tourism Council recently announced that they hope to welcome travelers back to Cancun and Riviera Maya as of June 1.
Mexico has been on lockdown to curb the spread of the COVID-19 novel corona virus. All non-essential travel to the Cancun and Riviera Maya region had since been prohibited for several weeks. If all goes as planned, Mexico will begin reopening the country for local travel prior to May 30.
The tourism council said it will first launch promotional campaigns geared towards local tourism, followed by opening the market to US tourists with Europe and South America thereafter.
The council has been in close communication with several airlines through virtual meetings. Including “Air Canada, Air Transat, Delta Airlines, Copa Airlines, Air Europa, Sunwing, Southwest and Aeroméxico” who are expected to resume flights to Cancun International Airport beginning in June.

Mexico’s Secretary of State Tourism announced a new health certification program that will be available for tourism companies to register so that they can be included in the list of “safe options” for future travelers. According to her statement, the certification guarantees that adequate sanitary measures are maintained, according to the criteria of the Ministry of Health, for the protection of not only tourists, but also of workers and their families.
