    I saw a news article stating that Cancun is seeing a COVID spike and has moved the area back under "orange" restrictions. How is this affecting life at the resort?

    I don't think it will effect the resort. I get the feeling that what goes on in the walls in these hotels is what it is, and no one is really monitoring things. I was there in August and it was practically sold out, and then again for NYE and it was sold out (and by sold out I don't mean they were at maximum Covid capacity. I mean the hotel was full). The resort was essentially running exactly the same. The differences were that the buffet was assisted, the restaurants were on a "more difficult to figure out" open/close rotation than normal, they setup burger and nacho stands outside under the ramp by the pool, and the employees all wear masks. My understanding is the buffet is no longer assisted, hopefully that stays.

    If only a very very very small amount of guests are testing positive at check-out, and the employees aren't all showing up with high temperatures, then logic would dictate extra measures aren't necessary.

    I don't want to speak for Steve, but I do think with the yellow and orange levels the Boobs Cruise guest numbers have to be adjusted, and maybe that is something that is more regulated than hotel guest capacity. So if you are planning on a Boobs Cruise, than I suggest making your deposit.

    We are going to be there over Memorial day, and from what I understand the hotel is expected to be full. Just want to make sure we aren't going to have our vacation canceled due to the new restrictions.

    We were there when they reopened in early July 2020 and they were reporting 30% capacity. We wanted to change rooms and couldn't because they were at 100% capacity for July 4th weekend.

    It's not. Never has since they reopened last June. The move to Orange hasn't affected anything in day to day life either.

    Cancun hasn't been red under the State Semaforo system, maybe under the National system.

    But the State system takes precedence over the National system.

    I very much doubt that they'll lose the opportunity to "make your money" by cancelling you. My understanding from the "Depths of COVID" last year was that the hotels merely paid some sort of fine, which was designed to be less than the profit they'd make if they overbooked the recommended capacity.

    Cynical, I understand, but hey. Everyone's gotta eat.

    Today they had 125 rooms check in to take them to a 95% capacity. But the hotel yay how is still limited to a 60% capacity.
