In this post, you will find a small guide on how to take the proper measures to travel safely in the Riviera Maya and any other destination within Mexico and nearby areas.


First of all, we recommend you get the correct information from the proper media, avoid misinformation, and know the accurate data in official government websites such as Conacyt, where you will find accurate data before your travels.

Plan to travel to tourist destinations in Mexico such as Cancun, Playa del Carmen, Tulum, Los Cabos, Puerto Vallarta, among others. You should consider that the level of exposure will increase compared to other destinations within the Mexican Republic. Fortunately, cases have been decreasing in the last few days. 

By taking the corresponding measures, you can travel without worries or problems.

The Omicron Variant has caused a lot of commotion in the European continent and is spreading throughout the Americas and its conforming countries. Given this, you should not panic or altogether cancel your meetings or outings in the territory. Just follow the safety protocols to live safely and responsibly.


Before travelling, make sure you are vaccinated.

Many countries do not allow foreigners who are not vaccinated against COVID-19, which dramatically reduces the contagion and spread during any of your trips.


Try to visit open places.

The beach, parks and some open-air museums are the best options to make the most of your vacation without being limited in any way by the existing variants.


If you plan to get together on your travels, do it in small groups.

We know how much you like to travel around with large groups of people, so it will be necessary to reduce this number to keep the ones we love the safest for a few short months.


Always use a mouth cover, even in open places.

It is advisable to wear a mask at all times, even if you are in a meeting with friends.


Keep your distance

During vacations, it is normal to want to go out everywhere and go from one place to another; however, remember that it is everyone's responsibility to take care of themselves to travel freely as soon as possible. 


Hotel Security Protocols

Upon arrival at a hotel, make sure that your room complies with the necessary protocols for your stay. Also, make sure they have antibacterial gel and the needed material for your comfort and safety.

Upon arrival at the airport, you will find several booths or filters where all persons must pass to ensure that they have obtained the vaccine against SARS-COV-19. Do not skip any filter, and when leaving, remember to keep a considerable distance with people whether or not an open place.


Car Rental Safety Protocols
