Cancun and Riviera Maya plan to reopen for international travelers by the beginning of June.


Not long ago, Los Cabos, on the other side of Mexico, also announced a reopening plan for welcoming visitors back to its popular beaches.


Plans to reopen the Quintana Roo state, which includes Cancun, Tulum, Playa del Carmen and more, coincides with the start of air travel to the region. Southwest has said that it will resume flights between Houston, Denver, and Baltimore to Cancun next month.


At first, tourism would probably be centered on conventions and weddings, said Darío Flota Ocampo, the director of the Consejo de Promoción Turística de Quintana Roo. To promote travel to the area, the group will launch a campaign in late May aimed towards local tourism.


With the spread of COVID-19 around the world, more than 155 hotels closed in the area.


But Americans are quite ready to return to Mexico. Those looking to travel internationally this year have Mexico on their minds, with Playa del Carmen, Cancun, and Isla Mujeres featuring as top vacation spots.


Although plans are being made to woo visitors, the border between Mexico and the U.S. has been closed to all nonessential travel since March 21, and the order was extended for another 30 days on April 20.


Mexico has recorded more than 42,500 confirmed cases of COVID-19, according to Johns Hopkins University.
