Cancun and Riviera Maya Plan to Reopen to Tourists Next Month What to Know

Hugo Lopez-Gatell Undersecretary of Prevention | May 15, 2020

The popular tourist destinations of Cancun and Riviera Maya plan to reopen for international travel by the beginning of June, according to reports. Not long ago, Los Cabos, on the other side of the country, also announced a phased reopening plan to welcome visitors back to its beaches. The proposal to reopen the Quintana Roo state, which includes Cancun, Tulum, Playa del Carmen, and more, coincides with the start of air travel to the region, according to Riviera Maya News. In fact, Southwest has said it will resume flights between Houston, Denver, and Baltimore to Cancun next month. At first, tourism is likely to be centered around conventions and weddings, Darío Flota Ocampo, the director of the Consejo de Promoción Turística de Quintana Roo, told the paper. To promote travel to the area, the group will launch a campaign in late May targeting local tourism.
