Before the arrival of the cruise season in the Mexican Pacific, the government of Jalisco imposed the restriction that only tourists who have their complete vaccination scheme and test negative for covid-19 can get off their ship to visit Puerto Vallarta.
At the local level, a similar measure to apply to Cozumel cruises has not been announced .
When reporting on the measure, the state governor, Enrique Alfaro, indicated that the spill left by cruise ships in Puerto Vallarta is key to the economic reactivation of this tourist destination, but recalled that at this time Jalisco is going through a new wave of infections and therefore health is the most important thing.
“For Puerto Vallarta, it is very important that the cruise ships return but they must be with absolute security mechanisms. So, if a ship arrives, for someone to get off the ship they must have already gotten on with the vaccine and got off the cruise with the negative test” , said the president.
He pointed out that contact had already been established with the port authorities and with the shipping lines to report on this measure; In addition, an assessment of this was made with the hotel and port services sector.
The Carnival Panorama cruise ship is expected to arrive in Puerto Vallarta on August 25 with 70% of the 5 thousand 146 passengers it can carry.
