Well this stinks bc we don’t have a very long port of call and they aren’t giving us a discount but does anyone know of resorts in another area of Cozumel we can change to thanks!

No Bloody Mary with breakfast tacos?  No mimosas?  No breakfast beer?  First I have ever heard of this, or any other restrictive alcohol laws in Mexico.

Me too.   I have emailed the hotel we stay at in January every year to see what they will tell me.

I am not sure why they would say they haven’t heard of it.
 

A quick internet search will show you articles concerning a new law which was passed in February 2019 but it either seems slow to be implemented, or is perhaps being ignored.
 

It is mainly aimed at alcohol sales from shops and mostly restricts late night sales. Bars and hotels in tourist areas seem to be able to apply for an exemption. I did read some complaints about it being implemented at a AI in Riviera Maya in June but it was unclear whether it was all bars or just certain bars within the resort. 
 

I agree that it doesn't seem to have caused the widespread  concern that you would expect. I have also read different starting times of 10 and 11am but none as late as noon.

 

It didn’t seem to affect us at Park Royal in April (although their day pass has always begun at 11 but I think the bars were open), or Chankanaab in June but I did notice Senor Frogs wasn't serving when we were waiting for the  Bar Hop. We wouldn’t normally frequent Senor Frog’s so I don’t know if they have always opened late but I do know we have had beers previously when waiting and I just thought we must have met up later that time.

I'm wondering about getting wine with dinner on Sunday evenings in San Miguel - anybody got any experience with that?  We'll be on Coz in less than three weeks and I guess I'll get the DL then on all this new stuff.

 

Reef closures, new booze rules - what else?
