And it’s really tough now. As of January 15, it is forbidden to smoke in Restaurants, (even outdoors), Malls, Private ballrooms, Beaches, Parks, Sports stadiums, Movie theaters, theaters, live concerts, amusement parks, hotels, schools, workplaces, government offices, medical facilities and public transportations. If you are in a restaurant and go out to smoke, you must be 10 yards away from the entrance and ventilation equipment. You are stuck to smoking at private properties like your home or your friends’. Last but not least, packs of cigarettes for sale must not be visible, so store chains like OXXO have covered them with black curtains.
