All adult residents of five travel destinations in Mexico would be vaccinated against Covid-19 before the summer vacation period under a plan proposed by the federal economy minister.

Tatiana Clouthier said Monday she had spoken with President López Obrador and proposed full vaccination in five as yet undetermined destinations in order to encourage more travel to Mexico over the summer.

The minister said the destinations chosen will be those where the local economies depend heavily on the tourism sector and have the capacity to attract international tourists. Destinations that meet those criteria include Los Cabos, Baja California; Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco; and Cancún, Quintana Roo.

Clouthier also said the government is focusing more on promoting ecotourism because, as a result of the pandemic, many travelers are seeking nature-oriented vacations.

She added that the government is advocating an increase in direct flights to tourism hotspots so that travelers don’t have to transit through third cities to reach their final destination.
