Los Cabos hopes to revive tourism in June


--
Los Cabos also hopes to revive tourism as of June with a five-phase plan: initially, the region will focus on implementing health and safety guidelines across its travel industry. Most notably, travel suppliers that meet high hygiene standards will receive a "Clean Point" quality certification from the Mexican government.

Come July, many hotels will start accepting guests, says Rodrigo Esponda, the managing director of the Los Cabos Tourism Board, and the international terminal at the airport is also expected to reopen.

In August and September, the plan is to welcome travelers from within Mexico and internationally, especially those who had to postpone their trips due to Covid-19. By the first quarter of 2021, the region hopes to restore 60 percent of air connectivity, along with 80 percent of bookings.

"We are anticipating 40 percent fewer visitors in 2020 than we had in 2019," says Esponda. "We had a strong start to the year and see a lot of repeat visitors from California which helps us a lot."

"Pisces reported that some Cabo San Lucas hotels will open as early as May 30, and that hundreds of businesses and individuals have been training (virtually) with state health officials for the eventual re-opening of the iconic tourism destination at Baja California's tip."

Good. Great to hear.

Hotels never closed in the US. Stayed at 7 different hotels in April and May. A friend was in Austin this week and said his hotel was packed. He flew from Seattle.

Stuff is getting back to normal.

Not only normal, but today (so far) the Dow Jones is over 27,000 points and the unemployment rate dropped to 13% instead of the predicted 20%! Recovery is happening already... but so sad that it is too late for so many businesses. Two of our favorite restaurants could not hold on... and JCPenney is closing a lot of stores. AMC theaters may not reopen... 2020 is a year that so far has really sucked!

Of course the hotels are hoping to re-open and see customers,...

But still remains to be seen whether the epidemic will cooperate...

A Loreto local told me today the town is still locked down. Thinks it might open up 6/18? Heard there were 6 cases in town.

No direct indications that I see from BCS Turismo. Relevant resources seem to include:
https://twitter.com/secturbcs
https://twitter.com/gobbcs
https://www.elsudcaliforniano.com.mx/tags/temas/la-paz

From El Sudcaliforniano, reports of some permanent business closures, including Tailhunter:
--
El atractivo turístico que representa el malecón de La Paz a nivel internacional y con ello restaurantes y bares emblemáticos de la zona dorada, ha empezado poco a poco a colapsar por el cierre de muchos de ellos, debido a la poca o nula afluencia de clientes, por lo que los dueños de algunos restaurantes han optado por cerrar y despedirse de su clientela en sus respectivas redes sociales.

El primer caso de ello fue el restaurante-Bar The Harker que cerró sus puertas tras 9 años de arduo trabajo el pasado 12 de mayo, Seguido por La Morante Art- Bar en donde se presentaban artistas locales, nacionales e internacionales y tras 5 años de ser uno de los lugares más exitosos de la localidad decide cerrar el pasado jueves 21 de mayo, también el restaurante TAILHUNTER dijo adiós y Jiro Sushi Malecón cambio su dinámica de trabajo a la plaza Náutica de la ciudad capital.
