After the pandemic restricted the use of the beaches and open spaces in Tulum, the government announced a new schedule to enjoy the beach at night.

Tulum City Hall issued a communiqué informing owners of commercial and service establishments of the new hours for nighttime recreational activities in the coastal zone. This is good news for the tourist sector since now it will be possible to enjoy the beach and the bars for longer.

When the pandemic arrived in Cancun, activities on the beaches of Tulum were restricted due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but as this panorama has improved, the city council has notified that it will now be possible to enjoy the night to revive the region.

It was through social networks that the city council of Tulum announced the new schedules and prevention measures to be taken into consideration due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The tweet mentions that, on behalf of the municipal president, treasurer Diego Castan headed the meeting in which companies and tourist service providers supported the municipal measure to be implemented.

Even so, the government of Quintana Roo, together with the authorities of Tulum and the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO/WHO), shared the following recommendations in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic regarding best practices for meetings and events at a national and international level.

In this regard, the new schedule for enjoying evening events and activities at night is as follows:

Music at maximum volume, no louder than 65 decibels.
The sale of alcoholic beverages and food until 00:00 hours.
At 01:00 a.m., the building was completely closed and the lights were turned off.
The Proactive Prevention Principles (PPP) established by the authorities are directed at all participants to help minimize the risk of contracting and spreading COVID-19 during events. So if there is suspicion of the disease, this is what is recommended:

Take care: Avoid participating in clandestine parties and unsafe events.
Be prepared: if you have received the COVID-19 vaccine and require a booster, do it at least two weeks before attending the event.
Get oriented: Avoid attending parties or events if you have symptoms of COVID-19 or have tested positive for antigens.
