RIU Hotels is resuming operations in Cancún with the reopening of the Riu Palace Peninsula on 08JUN and the Riu Cancun on 19JUN. 

The company closed its 99 establishments worldwide (20 of them in Mexico) in MAR due to the coronavirus pandemic. 

The Riu Plaza Guadalajara, which reopened on 25MAY, was the first Riu property to resume operations in Mexico. 

RIU says it has created a series of protocols that will serve to guide hotels when they reopen post-COVID. Measures include limiting hotel occupancy to 50 to 60%, checking guests' temperatures on arrival and PPE for staff. 

As for culinary experiences, RIU says it is “firmly committed” to maintaining buffets, although certain safety measures will be implemented such as requiring guests to wear gloves and a mask. RIU says buffets will also contain more individual portions, more packaged products and more live cooking.
