Cancun delays beach opening and Playa del Carmen will open on August 20th 2020

Mexican tourism is close to returning to normal

Cancun is waiting for the health situation to improve and the epidemiological traffic light to turn yellow to reopen its beaches. On the other hand, Playa del Carmen, which continues in orange as the entire north and south of Quintana Roo, has already announced that it will reopen the coasts on August 20.

Cancun delays beach opening

This decision has been made on the basis that the traffic light will change to yellow starting the following week, as advanced by the state governor, Carlos Joaquín González, who has ensured that the municipalities of Cancun, Puerto Morelos, Playa del Carmen, Cozumel, Isla Mujeres, Tulum and Lázaro Cárdenas “are about to change to that color.”

However, the Solidarity City Council has specified that the beaches will reopen from August 20 to 30, through strict surveillance mechanisms. Mayor Laura Beristain’s team has pointed out that this determination was born as part of a pilot program taking as a reference the experience of Los Cabos and Baja California Sur.

Thus, together with the Secretariat of Civil Protection, Risk Prevention and Firefighters and the Directorate of Physical and Mental Health, they prepare protocols for the enjoyment of the beaches that include healthy distance between people, as well as the prohibition of alcoholic beverages.

“Its beaches will be opened to see how I know how people behave, it will be a pilot program. I don’t know why they are doing it this way, but it is a matter for the municipality of Solidaridad ”, assured Vagner Elbiorn, director of the Federal Maritime Terrestrial Zone (Zofemat) in the municipality of Benito Juárez, states Sipse.

For their part, Cancun hoteliers, whose occupancy is limited from June 1st to 30 percent due to the epidemiological traffic light in orange in the north, are looking for their own traffic light for the Hotel Zone that allows them to increase the quota of rooms they can fill.
