Tourism is now reopening in Cancun, Mexico


The governor of destinations like Cancun, Tulum, Playa del Carmen, Riviera Maya and Mayan Ruins is reopening its business Monday as hotels and resorts gear up for guests. The U.S. and Mexico restricted tourism on March 21 due to the coronavirus pandemic.

"A lot of the chains and competitors are really stressing deep cleaning [measures], but it's more than that. We’re implementing things like disposable menus, mobile or remote check-ins, maintaining lower capacity, sterilizing luggage and changing our food display so its not self-service," Bill Linehan, president of Karisma Hotels & Resorts, a collection of luxury Caribbean and Mexico resort properties with 13 in the Cancun area, told FOX Business of the properties that are welcoming back guests.

The reopening will begin on June 13. Employees will get temperature checks and are training for Coronavirus protocols as well.
