I don't know the situation re the US/Mexico border, but my understanding is there are no restrictions for travellers crossing into or out of Mexico, either by land or by air.

Well, it's complicated. The temporary ban on "non-essential travel" into and out of Mexico is still in place, at least until October 21st. In practice, this is only applying to Mexicans. United Staters* can easily cross into Mexico (at least at the major border crossings like our San Ysidro/Tijuana crossing) and the Mexican authorities are not stopping us. We can then cross back into the U.S. since we are citizens. For a few days, the U.S. agents were "educating" people about the travel restrictions and the border waits went from typically 2 to 3 hours to up to 9 hours. Thankfully, that is over now. (I have a SENTRI card and our border wait is typically 10 to 15 minutes and sometimes up to 45 minutes. Mi tarjeta de SENTRI vale mas que oro!)

*I love the Spanish translation of United States Citizen, estadounidense! I am a United Stater!
