Although the idea of traveling by plane to Puerto Vallarta and Riviera Nayarit continues present, there are a few things that should be taken into account when planning a trip during these times.

To safely visit our destination, here is everything you need to know about traveling to beautiful Vallarta · Nayarit.

Is it allowed to travel to Mexico?

The short answer is yes, because Mexico is one of the countries allowing American visitors to plan a vacation. And while U.S. citizens can’t drive into our country for non-essential travel, they can fly. During the summer and fall, airlines such as United Airlines and Southwest added flights to popular destinations, including Puerto Vallarta.

The country’s many resorts have also adjusted to COVID-19, adopting and following the health guidelines recommended by the government and different institutions.

What is the status of COVID-19 in Mexico?

According to Johns Hopkins University, which tracks cases worldwide, Mexico has reported more than 1.6 million confirmed cases of coronavirus.

What COVID-19 rules and regulations do you need to know about before traveling to Mexico?

Mexico has created a color-coded stoplight system to classify states according to their situation. The list, which is based on new cases, hospitalizations, hospital occupancy rates, and percentage of positive cases, is continually updated.

Only essential activities are allowed in states that are considered “red,” which currently includes Mexico City. In those places, hotels are limited to 25 percent occupancy for people who are there for critical activities.

In states that are designated “orange,” hotels and restaurants are allowed to operate at 50 percent capacity. This currently includes Jalisco.

What do you need to do before coming back to the U.S.?

All international travelers returning to the U.S., including those coming from Mexico, must show a negative result from a COVID-19 viral test taken 72 hours before their departure.

Children under two years old are exempt and travelers who have been vaccinated are not exempt from the testing requirement.

COVID-19 Tests

In Vallarta · Nayarit, the tourism industry has established an alliance with the health sector to offer COVID-19 information and testing services. This way, some of the most recognized hotels and private hospitals of the destination are offering a quality, bilingual service with competitive prices.

The Puerto Vallarta International Airport is conducting COVID-19 tests for those traveling to the U.S. and Canada.

Final Consideration

People who decide to travel are strongly encouraged to check local government restrictions, rules, and safety measures and take personal comfort levels and health conditions into consideration before departure.
