People with mask

The COVID-19 issue has been one of the most relevant in recent years. At Airport Cancun, we make sure to comply with all the appropriate preventive measures for our customers to travel safely and without complications.

Find in this post a small guide about how to take the necessary measures to travel safely to the Riviera Maya or any other destination in the Mexican Republic and nearby areas.

First of all, you should know that getting official and adequate information from the right media is essential. Nowadays, there is an endless amount of information on the subject circulating everywhere, so we recommend you avoid untruthful information and make sure you know the actual data on official government websites, such as Conacyt, where accurate information is provided so you can travel with total security.

Suppose you plan to travel to tourist destinations in Mexico, such as Cancun, Playa del Carmen, Tulum, Los Cabos, and Puerto Vallarta, among others. In that case, it is important to consider that exposure to the virus may increase considerably compared to other less crowded destinations within the Mexican Republic. Fortunately, with the vaccines, prevention measures, and new treatments, the cases of COVID-19 have decreased in the last months.

Remember that you can travel safely and without worries only by taking the corresponding preventive measures.

Many new variants have appeared, such as Omicron, Delta, Gamma, Beta, Alpha, Mu, and Lambda, among others. These have spread considerably from continent to continent; however, remember not to panic first of all. If you are traveling soon to Mexican territory, it is not necessary to cancel your plans completely; you should only follow the security protocols indicated to live safely and responsibly during your trip.

 

COVID-19 travel recommendations and variants

Covid 19 vaccinated

Before traveling, make sure you are vaccinated

Most countries do not allow access to foreigners unvaccinated against COVID-19, as vaccines significantly reduce contagion and spread during travel. Some of the COVID-19 vaccines licensed by the Government of Mexico are as follows:

Preferably visit outdoor sites

Being outside, the fresh air is in constant movement, which helps disperse the droplets that may contain the virus, making it less likely that you will inhale them and become infected. It is recommended to visit outdoor places such as the beach, parks, open museums, and archaeological sites, among other options, so you can make the most of your vacation without limiting yourself in any way. 

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

Although traveling from one place to another with large groups of people can be an incredible experience, it is preferable to avoid it if you want to avoid contagion during your vacation. Therefore, it is advisable to reduce the number of people in the travel group to have more control and keep everyone safe at a healthy distance. 

Always wear a mask, especially in very closed and crowded places

Although nowadays, the use of masks is no longer mandatory in many places, it is advisable to continue using them, especially in very closed and crowded places such as squares, buses, and parties, among other similar cases. 

Keep your distance

When on vacation, it is very typical to want to go out everywhere and go from one place to another; however, remember to be responsible and keep a distance of at least 2 meters between people to reduce the risk of contagion. 

Hotel Safety Protocols

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

Airport Security Protocols

Upon arrival at the airport, you will find several booths or filters you must pass to ensure you have obtained the vaccine against SARS-COV-19. Remember not to skip any filter and keep a considerable distance from people when leaving.

Car Rental Safety Protocols

When renting a car, remember to ensure that it has undergone an adequate sanitization process and has everything necessary for your safety and mobility. Likewise, it is important to be responsible and return the vehicle in the same conditions in which it was received.

Agencies such as City Car Rental keep their vehicles safe and sanitized for each client in their destinations such as Cancun, Tulum, Playa del Carmen, Puerto Vallarta, Los Cabos, or any other destination in the Mexican Republic, Latin America, and even the United States.

Security Protocols in Private Transportation

If you decide to hire a private transportation service, make sure that the units where you travel are sanitized and have everything you need (such as antibacterial gel, sanitizing towels, etc.) to travel safely to your destination.

Airport Cancun is one of the safest agencies to travel in the Riviera Maya; with them, you can get a special kit with everything you need to reach your destination safely and comfortably.

Safety protocols in restaurants

If among your travel plans is to leave the hotel to visit a restaurant, we recommend you comply with the distancing protocols and, above all, the correct use of a mask. In addition, once you have finished your food and drinks, remember to put it on again, as well as wash your hands properly before eating any food.
