Traveling to Cancun and Covid Testing- Follow Up Questions

Y’all had some great questions about traveling to Cancun and Covid testing, so I wanted to do a quick Q and A to get you some answers!

Did you have to get a Covid test done to go to Cancun?

Nope!  The U.S. only requires a negative test result within 72 hours of your return.  Mexico does not require any testing to enter the Country. 

Did you have to convert your U.S. dollars to pesos?

Nope again!  We used US cash for tips without any issues.  You may get Pesos as change, though, if you are paying in shops or restaurants.  I also used my Visa everywhere to take advantage of the exchange rate. Both US dollars and Pesos were accepted at the airport shops and restaurants and they quoted prices in both denominations. My daughter ordered a spicy margarita at Margaritaville at the Cancun Airport. It was served in a plastic cup for $24. So, the good news is you can take your cocktails to go at the airport in Cancun. The bad news is you will pay a crazy price for that privilege. 😉

Did people in Cancun wear masks everywhere?

Yes, inside.  We only had one encounter during our stay where a woman rushed into our elevator at the last minute and wasn’t wearing a mask.  People wore masks in the restaurants until they were seated.  But masks were not worn outside by the beach or pool.  I mean, can you imagine those tan lines?  But seriously, the hotel was not crowded at all and it was very easy to stay socially distanced outside. 

Did you feel safe?  Would you go back?

Yes.  I’d go back tomorrow.  The worst part of the whole experience was quarantining when we got home.  If you feel like you need a tropical vacation and can work from home for a week when you get back, treat yourself to a Cancun vacation.  You may never see pricing and crowd levels this low again.  Need an agent to help you?  Click here and start packing.  😊
