On June 1, about 40% of hotels in Los Cabos will open once again to tourists as part of a five-phase plan for the destination. Rodrigo Esponda, the director of the Los Cabos Tourism Board, shared the news in an interview on May 13. The hotels that are opening will operate under strict hygiene measures, according to Esponda.
This comes at the same time airlines are restoring service to the destination. Alaska Airlines, American Airlines, Delta and Southwest have all begun service to Los Cabos in May and June. The Los Cabos Tourism Board said it expects to restore 60% of its air connectivity and 80% of its bookings by the first quarter of 2021, completing the fifth and final phase of the plan.
There will be some changes in the destination in addition to the new hygiene measures at hotels. Health screenings at airports and cruise ship docks along with the encouragement of social distancing are part of authorities’ efforts to protect visitors and residents.
