Covid-19 Mexico Overview
If you plan to visit Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula and the Mexican Caribbean region, here is a snapshot of what you can expect. While only you can determine your risk tolerance and make travel decisions, this guide will provide information to help you make an informed decision. Note that regulations can change rapidly, so consult government websites for additional coronavirus updates.
Beginning January, 26th 2021, all passengers DEPARTING Mexico for the United States are now required to provide proof of a negative Covid-19 test administered within 24 hours of departure. But don’t worry. Testing is readily available at many locations as outlined below. We also suggest getting Travel Insurance in case you get a positive test and have to extend your stay a few days to get a negative test, though this seems to be very rare.
Note: The U.S. accepts the results of both rapid antigen and PCR tests.
If you visit Cancun, Tulum, Playa del Carmen, and Cozumel today, you can still have an exciting experience. As noted above, most tourist sights are now open and welcoming guests. Be prepared to wear a mask whenever around other people, but otherwise, the experience is similar to most years, only with far fewer tourists!
