Border Restrictions Extended Between US and Canada, Mexico

Bans on nonessential travel across international borders between the United States, Canada, and Mexico are being extended for yet another month as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to spread, particularly within the United States.

The restrictions were first implemented in March and have been renewed monthly ever since. U.S. leisure travelers will need to wait through October 21, at the earliest, if they’re hoping to cross into Canada or Mexico.

These restrictions should not impact trade routes or supply lines so that commerce continues as usual between the North American nations. Other reasons for crossing the border that are considered essential services, such as labor and healthcare considerations, may qualify for an exemption.

But as the Washington Post pointed out, U.S. travelers continue to be allowed to fly into some popular areas of Mexico without any mandated quarantine or testing; they have health and temperature checks upon arrival at airports and are required to adhere to local health and precautionary safety measures.

 

Restaurant Week in Puerto Vallarta and Riviera Nayarit Begins

After months of not being able to properly share their culinary creations for locals and visitors, restaurants in Puerto Vallarta and Riviera Nayarit have excitedly kicked off the sixteenth edition of Restaurant Week.

The culinary festival began on September 15 and runs through October 10. Participants will find a variety of restaurants to choose from, with options ranging from traditional Mexican cuisine to specialties like Italian, French, Spanish, and Chinese.

During this time, participating restaurants offer three-course menus at a reduced price. Guests will get to indulge in an appetizer, a main course, and a dessert. The rates for three-course meals do not include drinks or tips.
