Created by health authorities, the Emergency Button is a strategy designed to try to reduce the rate of positive cases of COVID-19 through the suspension of some activities for 14 days.

Last Wednesday, Enrique Alfaro, Jalisco governor, took the decision to press this metaphorical button so, from Friday, October 30th to November 13th, 2020, there will be a reduction in activities at the state level.

Due to its tourist vocation, in Puerto Vallarta things will work a little different and with a limited hour (Monday to Sunday from 6:00am to 8:30pm).

  • Beaches will be open from Monday to Sunday from 5:00am to 3:00pm.
  • Hotels will be operating normally (with 50 percent occupancy).
  • Economic, cultural, religious, recreational and sports activities will be suspended on the weekdays during the night hours (Monday to Thursday from 7:00pm to 6:00am). A complete shutdown of these activities will take place from Friday at 7:00pm to Monday at 6:00am.
  • The public transport and taxi service of digital platforms (Uber or InDriver) will be restricted after 10:00pm on all days of the week. Normal taxis may continue to operate at any time and during weekends.
  • The ATM trucks (Autotransportes Medina) will stop circulating at 8:30pm from Puerto Vallarta to Bahía de Banderas and at 7:45pm from Bahía de Banderas to Puerto Vallarta.
  • Restaurants will run normally until 8:30pm. After that, they will be able to offer food for carryout. Platforms dedicated to this will be able to continue operating.
  • While supermarkets will operate until 8:00pm, the self-service and grocery stores will work daily until 7:00pm.
  • Pharmacies and health services may operate in their normal hours.
  • Mechanical workshops, technical services, malls, commercial centers, public and flea markets, corporate offices and tours should adjust their schedules.

Until this moment, Riviera Nayarit will be running normally.

So, it is highly recommended to keep following the security measures (use of face mask, antibacterial gel and social distancing).

“Vallarta Lifestyles was the first reliable magazine that emerged in our destination. In fact, up to date is the only publication that we have in Puerto Vallarta that you can be proud of, because if you give it to someone, you know that person will enjoy watching the photos and reading the articles in each of its pages. I consider, that it is the only magazine that prevails in Vallarta · Nayarit as an icon of this genre”.
