04 Aug FAQ: Can We Travel to Mexico Right Now?
One question that we are seeing a lot lately is whether we can travel to Mexico right now. The answer is YES! We sent several clients to Mexico in July and have even more on the books for August.
Read on for our client’s testimonial on traveling to Mexico last month.
We had a wonderful time at the VIM (Valentin Imperial Maya, Riviera Maya). The resort had amazing safety measures in place. All staff members had on face masks and most also had face shields. There were hand sanitation stations set up as you entered every restaurant and entrances to the lobby.
The staff was so happy to be back at work and have guests. The service was fantastic.
Occupancy was at 24 – 26% during our stay. We really enjoyed our swim up room and spent most of our time there. It didn’t feel crowded anywhere and all restaurants and social areas were set up for social distancing.
There were 3 restaurants open each night. There was one buffet and one a la carte restaurant for breakfast and lunch. Sadly the Snack Bar is not open.
There wasn’t much for entertainment and we honestly didn’t miss it. We truly enjoyed the peace and quiet. It was one of the most relaxing trips we’ve taken.
The only negative for us was the lack of social distancing and wearing of face masks in the US airports and going through customs in Mexico. Also wearing face masks properly on the planes.
We honestly felt safer at the resort in Mexico than anywhere in the US. We look forward to going back to the VIM in August.
You’re the best, thanks so much!

Do resorts have safety measures in place?

How is the service?
Mary sums it up perfectly in her review: “The staff was so happy to be back at work and have guests. The service was fantastic.” You don’t have to worry about people acting hostile to Americans when traveling to Mexico right now. The people there are happy to be back at work and they need Americans in their resorts and restaurants.
What are the occupancy rates and do the resorts feel crowded?
As mentioned above, the occupancy rate during Mary’s stay was at about 25%. All restaurants and public areas were set up for social distancing and our clients felt very safe. It did not feel crowded at all.
Are restaurants open on the resorts?
Yes, three restaurants were open during Mary’s stay at Valentin Imperial Maya. “There was one buffet and one a la carte restaurant for breakfast and lunch. Sadly the Snack Bar is not open.” The resort also had social distancing measures in place and hand sanitization stations upon entry.
Will I feel safe while staying in Mexico?
You can see by our client’s testimonial that they felt very safe during their entire stay. In fact, Mary says she felt more safe in Mexico than she does in the US right now. They enjoyed their stay so much that they already have a return trip planned for this month! “We truly enjoyed the peace and quiet. It was one of the most relaxing trips we’ve taken.”
