COVID Travel Info for Mexico

Vacations In Mexico (2021 Update)

Mexico has been welcoming tourists for vacations since summer of last year. At that time, hotels, restaurants, and airlines began slowly opening up services throughout Mexico with new COVID protocols in place. For example, many businesses in Mexico have added extra health and sanitation protocols so that visitors are safe to vacation. For Villa La Estancia homeowners, we have stringent hygiene measures and sanitation protocols throughout the property. Depending on the number of COVID cases, many resorts have limited capacity restrictions. In addition, properties such as Villa La Estancia have added health and safety protocols which include temperature checks when guests arrive at the property. In addition, the residences are deep cleaned and sanitized with hospital grade disinfectant. Lastly, social distancing is regulated throughout common areas and restaurants along with the use of facemasks, too.

Are Beaches and Restaurants Open?

Right now, the majority of beaches in Mexico are open. However, capacity may be limited and operating hours can change depending on case numbers of COVID in the area. Thankfully, it isn’t hard to socially distance at the beach due to the miles of breathtaking and beautiful beaches in Mexico. It’s the perfect place to rest, relax and enjoy the fresh ocean air in peace. Likewise, restaurants have made changes to allow for safer dining. Restaurants have rearranged tables and open air seating outside is available. That way, diners can enjoy their meal in a safer, COVID friendly al fresco setting. Currently, bars are only open if they also serve food. Do you prefer to take your food to the beach or back to your room? Most restaurants have delivery and to go options available. Lastly, restaurant staff members are required to wear facemasks at all times, too.

Airports in Mexico and across the world have adapted their procedures to align with COVID safety measures. In Mexico, social distancing is required and everyone must wear facemasks in the airport and on planes. Plus, travelers will have to have their temperature checked before they board their flight. Face masks are required to be used during the entire flight. To reduce the risk of transmission of coronavirus, airplanes are thoroughly sanitized between flights.
