Puerto Rico reopens beaches, relaxes other Covid rules


Recommended Posts

The new Governor of Puerto Rico has relaxed some of the Covid-mitigation rules effective January 8, 2021:

 

  • Beaches are now open for lounging, in addition to exercising, swimming, watersports, etc. No alcohol consumption allowed on the beach, though. Unrelated groups must keep distance between each other.
  • Marinas can reopen for private boating. Nautical tourism, sports and commercial fishing have been open for a while now.
  • Golf, tennis and other outdoor sports are open.
  • All sightseeing tour options are open except for the interior of the San Juan National Historic Site forts.
  • Restaurants and retail are open at 30% capacity indoors, and 100% capacity outdoors.
  • Curfew shortened, now from 11:00 PM to 5:00 AM. 
  • Can't wait for cruising to restart to go to the Caribbean? The weather is great, the prices are low and Puerto Rico is safe. Come on down!

Glad to hear that the situation is apparently improving on my "home away from home" island.

If only I could work up the courage to get on an airplane, but I think that's going to have to wait until after I've been vaccinated .

Since we can’t get on a cruise ship, and will very soon have both our vaccine shots, we are seriously considering a trip to San Juan for end of February... any advice would be greatly appreciated! I am looking at booking the Marriott resort & casino... we have been to San Juan once on a ship.

I can't make any specific recommendations as I am a local in San Juan, but February is a great time to visit. Weather's great. Most attractions will be open. Covid rules will be relaxed further after February 8. Just be sure to check out travelsafe.pr.gov for specific testing requirements before coming down.
