Riviera Maya News is reporting the following regarding updated Coronavirus strategies for the Cancun tourism industry,
“Cancun, Q.R. — Vaccinated tourist service providers along with Covid testing points are some of the measures that the Hotel Association of Cancun, Puerto Morelos and Isla Mujeres are looking into.
Roberto Cintrón Gomez, head of the association says he has had talks with state governor Carlos Joaquin about implementing the strategies to maintain the region’s competitiveness in the face of the pandemic.
He said that it is only a matter of time before the U.S. will begin requesting a PCR test for re-entry into the country, a move that Canada recently made for all incoming travelers.
Cintrón Gomez says it is for this reason they would like to be able to offer tourists the services so they can comply with such requirements without having to leave the Cancun Hotel Zone.
The vaccination for all hotel employees and service providers would make the region the first to offer complete security to its visitors, while guaranteeing the health of the entire workforce.
The investment would be borne by the hotels themselves, and although they are utilizing both Pfizer and Astra Zeneca, the second is the most possible given the ease of application and distribution.
Roberto Cintrón also said in the event of a positive tourist test, there are already four hotels near the airport that would charge preferential prices to the families of the infected.”
As of the date of this blog post, the U.S is NOT requiring a COVID passport, proof of a negative COVID test or any other information for travel to and from Mexico. I predict that in the near future, the U.S. government will require a COVID passport for travel. Until that time, I’m encouraging my audience to experience the all-inclusive resorts of the Palladium Hotel Group. They are giving all guests free medical insurance to offer peace of mind in the unlikely event you have a COVID related issue during the vacation.
