You've read all sorts of articles about new waves of Covid-19, record-beating high temperatures, and rising crime statistics. Well, the good news is that even after taking all of those factors into account, Cancun is a safe destination to visit in 2021.
COVID-19 in Cancun 2021
Cancun Mexico has adapted brilliantly to the COVID-19 ever-changing protocols. Its airport, hotels, restaurants, and entertainment venues developed measures to ensure travelers have a safe experience without sacrificing the enjoyment of being in paradise: limited capacities, social distance, flexible schedules, constant nebulization, and an abundance of sanitizing gel are a few of the primary practices.
If you plan on traveling safely to Cancun in 2021, consider these expert tips:
Cancun's International Airport
Covid-19 test results and vaccinations records are not mandatory to travel to Mexico. However, these protocols could change soon as the Mexican government adopts more strict measures. It is recommended to follow the latest updates on Mexico travel.
Hotels, Resorts, and Airbnb's
All properties in the Hotel Zone of Cancun have specific protocols monitored by the federal government's commission against risks, COFEPRIS. As socially responsible travelers, our tip is to read the protection rules of your hotel before booking. Check if they offer on-site covid testing as it is a requirement for traveling back to the US & Canada.
Cancun's roaring nightlife has moved to open-air venues and adopted earlier schedules. As dance floors have been traded for safely separated tables, we recommend traveling in groups of up to 4 people for a smooth experience.
Is Cancun's weather good?
Yes! Cancun's climate is actually beneficial for most people's health. This beach destination has privileged weather with almost 300 sunny days a year! Learn more about the best times to visit Cancun here.
Dog Days of Summer or "La Canícula"
From mid-July to the end of August, temperatures rise to about 100°F; this period is locally known as "La Canícula." However, those heat waves don't represent a health risk as long as you keep hydrated at all times. While sipping piña coladas is refreshing enough, remember to drink water!
It is safe to travel during hurricane season, which begins in July and lasts until November. The chances of a tropical storm landing in Cancun during your stay are meager. Nevertheless, suppose you were to be in the city during a hurricane. In that case, there is an abundance of safe shelters you can attend to. Expert tip: Avoid storms altogether by booking flexible flights and lodgings.
Is there Crime in Cancun?
Although there's no denying that crime exists in Cancun, it is essential to point out that it exists in every city in the world. Even US Cities like New Orleans or Kansas City have a higher crime rate. The US Bureau of consular affairs advises increasing caution when traveling, said cautions can consist of:
Remain in the tourist areas of the city
While going off the beaten path can sound like an exciting adventure, we suggest staying at the Hotel Zone of Cancun, where the best beaches, resorts, restaurants, and venues are concentrated.
Avoid late-night outings
Dancing in Cancun's iconic nightclubs and bars is a must, and it is a generally safe activity. Just remember to go in groups and try to be back at your hotel around midnight for extra caution.
Exercise increased caution
Keeping jewelry in a safe, not leaving luggage unattended, and booking private transportation are some measures you'd take in every new city you visit. Apply those in Cancun too and enjoy a hassle-free, 100% safe vacation!
