Currently, the local government of Riviera Nayarit Mexico hasn't imposed a curfew, vaccination restrictions, or quarantine restrictions. This makes Punta Mita one of the best places to be during lockdowns as the locals and visitors in the area are more or less allowed to function as they would pre-pandemic.
