Puerto Rico has announced it will formally reopen for in-bound tourism on July 15, as part of the island’s responsible four-phased opening plan.

Puerto Rico has exercised an abundance of caution since the onset of COVID-19, with policies in place to avoid the spread of the virus throughout the island, including being the first U.S. entity to implement strict measures such as an island-wide curfew.

Thorough cleanliness measures are in place throughout the island, and enhanced policies are being implemented that follow the U.S. Travel Association (USTA) Health and Safety guidelines along with locally enforced measures, developed by the Puerto Rico Tourism Company.

An island curfew will remain in effect through June 30, but has been extended from 10pm to 5am, except for emergencies. Beaches have reopened with sunbathing and other recreational activities now permitted, but with group gatherings limited to only those within the same household.

Hotel pools are open and increasing capacity to 50% starting June 16. Restaurants are also open and increasing capacity to 50% starting June 16. Casinos and playgrounds will remain closed until further notice.
