Yes, you read the title right. After months of border closures due to COVID-19, the vibrant hub of Quintana Roo, which houses Cancun, Riviera Maya, and Playa del Carmen officially reopens its doors to global travelers on June 10th. Recognizing optimal guidelines and protocols approved by the World Health Organization, the World Travel & Tourism Council awarded the region the International Safe Travels Stamp, deeming certain world-class resorts and local attractions ready for service. With most of our favorite destinations still abiding by stay-at-home orders, Quintana Roo is the first tourist area in the entire world to receive this valuable stamp.

The decision comes after a recent surge in safety measures implemented by the area’s most popular resort chains, complete with updated protocols ranging from contactless check-ins to constant sanitization of high-contact surfaces. Devoted to their travelers’ safety, Quintana Roo’s picturesque cities will slowly reopen specific restaurants and nightlife establishments to prevent any further spread of COVID-19. While the world is still not out of the woods, we can all find solace in finally planning our dream Mexico retreat surrounded by the lush emerald jungles and turquoise waters of Quintana Roo.
