Although the beaches of the municipality of Pochutla, where Zipolite belongs, will be open to the public, it is important that you know that the sanitary measures against Covid-19 must be monitored at all times, such as the use of face masks, since three brigades of three teams from the municipality will be visiting both this tourist destination and Puerto Ángel.

According to Diego Ordoñez Ventura, coordinator of supervisors for Health of the municipality, the campaigns that were already carried out in the center of Pochutla and businesses will now be carried out on the most visited beaches, especially from March 29 to April 3, which corresponds to Easter.

“I invite you, a tourist friend, that if you go to our municipality you take the corresponding sanitary measures (…) We ask you to support us and not disrespect us. Support us, we are going to mitigate the pandemic ”.
