Lots of hand sanitizer will be offered to you as you enter many places, including hotels, restaurants, taxis and many larger stores. Take advantage of it and accept it.

I don't recommend going to most bars, but the restaurants recommended here on my website and a few others I keep forgetting to list should be fine. Many are delivering to any reduce risk. An excellent service if you are staying within delivery range of any of your favorite restaurants.

So what happens if you have symptoms of covid while in Z, are tests available for visitors through a clinic? Then to be able to return back to u.s. you would have to test negative of course, but no other requirements?

If you show symptoms you call a doctor or the Cruz Roja. You will be tested and quarantined. If you require hospitalization you will be admitted to the Covid-19 section of the Hospital General.

Everyone who needed a ventilator in Zihuatanejo was able to be placed on one. There was never a shortage here or no room or supplies for Covid-19 patients. They lacked for nothing.

Thanks,

Most of the restaurants are open, at least to some degree. Many are not open for dine in dinners yet, but plan to soon. Many have take out/delivery available. Most are open for breakfast and comida.

All the restaurants that are open are using extreme sanitary measures. We are back to dining out several times a week again. We missed it when everything was closed.

I think that Letty's is open, but I'm not sure. She was open for take out only in July, but it's now October.
