Yes, you can. Cancun is currently open to all foreign travellers. The land border between Mexico and the United States is closed for nonessential travel through at least May 21. However, air travel is allowed.
- There are also no COVID‑19 test requirements for entry to Mexico.

Will I be quarantined if I travel to Mexico during COVID-19 Pandemic?
No, the state no longer requires self-quarantine for visitors or New Mexicans arriving into the state from “high-risk” states or states with a 5 per cent positivity rate or greater over a 7-day rolling average, or a positive test rate greater than 80 per 1 million residents.
