The state of Jalisco, including Puerto Vallarta, is proceeding with its COVID-19 recovery plan. As of Monday, June 15, beaches located immediately in front of hotels will be open for guests, and hotels are permitted to operate at 25 percent capacity. Hotel swimming pools, beach clubs, and restaurants are permitted to open, but hotel gyms and spas will 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.

Select businesses that do not generate crowds and adhere to social distancing guidelines will also be permitted to open.
