If you’re like me, you’ve been itching to get out and it is a matter of your mental health at this point! Can I get an Amen? 😅

You may be wondering, “Can I travel to Mexico right now? Is travel to Mexico permitted and who can travel to Mexico right now?”

Or, you might be trying to figure out what countries you can travel to right now. I understand, it is confusing with all the constant changes and different States having restrictions.

Good news, my friend! Travel to the Cancun/Riviera Maya area is open to all U.S. Citizens and it doesn’t require a COVID test! If that doesn’t make you want to do back flips, I don’t know what will! 🤸‍♀

Let me introduce myself…

I am Tami and I’m a travel professional specializing in honeymoons and destination weddings for over 12 years.

As a travel pro, I recently (July 28-31, 2020) went to Cancun and now I’m sharing my experience with you so that you know what to expect for your trip.

What to expect for your trip?

Honestly, it is unbelievable that the safety touch points that occur to make travelers feel safe. I love that the planes are really wiped down as it always grossed me out before! 👍

It was interesting. I filled out a health questionnaire form online (you can find the app here) and I filled one out a paper version of the questionnaire on the plane as well. I thought for sure there would be a station that I needed to stop at for a health screening and to give my paperwork, but it was a random check.

They did have a body heat indicator monitor as you walked through the airport, so maybe that was how they chose who to pull aside.

In your transfer, you will wear a mask. Upon arrival at the resort you will have your temperature taken and your luggage will be sprayed down and a sticker notating that it was disinfected will be applied.

All in all, it actually felt really normal. I felt badly for the staff wearing those masks out in the hot sun, but it makes everyone feel safe – the tourists and the staff.

They are thrilled to be back to work and have guests to serve and it showed. I actually like the low occupancy. I know it isn’t realistic as they are operating at a loss, but I enjoyed the level of attention and service received plus all the space to go hang out wherever I wanted without battling for a chair.

At the resort, things feel normal and everyone is mindful of others. The thing is that anyone who is willing to travel right now is not in fear. They are respectful of the rules and just want to enjoy a getaway. For example, if an elevator had two people on it already, I would ask if it was okay for me to join them.

Travel to Cancun/Riviera Maya is super easy right now. I highly recommend a getaway here. Even if it isn’t 100% up and running in every area, I’m not complaining. I think it is worth the money, especially given the amazing rates, and you’ll be glad you stepped out and allowed yourself to get away from it all for a few days. Your health will thank you for it! 😉

Airport protocol on departing Cancun

Upon departing Mexico, fill out a health questionnaire and show it to the TSA agent before going through security. You can find the questionnaire at: afac.hostingerapp.com

When you fill out the questionnaire, take a screenshot of the QR code to show.

Phew! I hope this was helpful to you as you consider your vacation getaway to Mexico. I love Mexico and would be delighted to help you reserve your vacation to ensure you have an advocate in your corner and a trustworthy recommendation.

    Thank you Tami for taking us on your trip. For sure things are not so scary now that we can see how guests are pampered and how all the safety precautions are taken for guests and travel consultants’ peace of mind.
