Coronavirus COVID-19 situation in Cancun
Last updated Aug 12th, 2020.
The state of Quintana Roo’s government, the state in which all destinations of the Mexican Caribbean are located (Cancun, Puerto Morelos, Riviera Maya, Playa del Carmen, Tulum and Cozumel) has a current total of 8951 confirmed cases as describe in the chart below.
Thanks to the quick implementing of sanitary and preventive measures the State of Quintana Roo managed to reduce the movement of people and thus reduce the spread of COVID. This is how today we have 671 active cases, so tourism activity started last June in a limited and gradual way.

Government has currently implemented the following sanitary measures:
- Social distancing.
- Mass gatherings are prohibited.
- Hotels can host 50% of their room capacity.
- Attractions and tour operators must obtain a sanitary certification to be allowed for reopening.
At the Airport:
While there are currently no restrictions for flights into or out from Mexico the government has taken steps at the airport to increase the safety of visitors and locals alike. Sanitary filters have been implemented in the arrival terminals and thermal cameras are being used to detect possible cases and prevent contagions.
Currently less than 20% of the hotel rooms in Cancun and Riviera Maya are occupied. From June 8th 2020 hotels are allowed to open their doors with some sanitary restrictions.
