Can I Travel To Los Cabos During Covid-19 Pandemic?

The Mexican tourist hotspot Los Cabos will begin re-opening in June, the local tourism board said, part of a plan for bringing the beach resort, located at the southern tip of Mexico’s Baja California Peninsula, back to life after the coronavirus crisis forced a shutdown of the Mexican economy.

About 40% of hotels will open on June 1 under strict hygiene measures, while the remainder will gear up to open by year’s end, the director of the Los Cabos Tourism Board, Rodrigo Esponda, said in an interview.

Also in June, airlines will begin adding more flight routes from the United States. By the fall, weddings that had been planned for the spring will be able to take place.

Los Cabos on the Pacific coast released a multi-phase tourist plan in early May. At that time, hotels and short-term Cabo vacation rentals like Airbnb could start reopening on June 1, 2020. Businesses are undergoing a "Clean Spot" hygiene certification program.

One Los Cabos opens, we may expect a multi-month phased reopening. Hotels and businesses will operate at reduced capacity. The international airport terminal will open to arriving flights from the U.S. and Canada in a follow-up phase as the list of airline routes will continue to expand.

At best, Los Cabos expects up to 1 million visitors in 2020. That's roughly 25% percent of the usual annual visitors.
