What does this report mean for the Los Cabos public?
Covid 19 rates of infection and severe cases continue to decline in Los Cabos and much of Mexico. We can see the positive effects of these reports all over Los Cabos over the last several weeks.
These effects are felt, from Los Cabos hotels announcing record-breaking estimates for tourists in March to bars and restaurants extending operating hours, far and wide. All of Baja California moving to the green state of Covid emergency level and Los Cabos/La Paz airports setting record passenger numbers are more proof of the economic upswing aided by improving Covid numbers.
This benefits not only the Los Cabos public and businesses but also the tourists. Most restrictions have been loosened or outright ended with these rapidly improving numbers. These numbers will lead to more entertainment options for Los Cabos citizens and tourists, freedom of movement, and less worrying about where you left your mask.
Businesses will benefit from a public that is eager to spend money and revitalize the local economy. Fewer restrictions are opening back up the enormous tourism sector vital to the Los Cabos economy.
