My Cancún Travel Experience During a Pandemic by Chief Business Officer, Philip Cochrane

My Flight

I was dreading this part of the trip but it turned out to be quite pleasant. Masks are required during flight unless you are eating. They discontinued inflight meals and beverages for this flight however they provide prepackaged sealed snack options and water bottles. You do have the option to purchase and bring your own food aboard. Don’t worry, you still have plenty of great inflight movies and TV series to pass the time.

Arrival in Cancun

Our arrival at Cancun Airport was safe and smooth. All airport workers are wearing masks and social distancing guidelines are place also in Mexico. Surprisingly the airport was bustling with US travelers. My group and I were greeted by our transportation company and we were off to to the beautiful Fiesta Americana Condesa Cancún All-Inclusive.

The Resort

We arrived at the resort, greeted by an amazing staff, and escorted to our private group check where we received our wrist band room keys and off to our immaculate rooms. The resorts were not full being the occupancy is limited during the pandemic so it felt like we had the whole resort to ourselves. The resort was so clean, everyone including the staff was wearing masks, you can take your mask off once in the pool area, in your room, or seated at your socially distanced table in the restaurants. The buffet was open and clean. You do not serve yourself as the staff will cordially serve you at each food station.

Off Resort Activities

Everything is open including the Mayan ruins. My group opted to experience the zip-line experience at the Selvática which everyone loved and I highly recommend it.


Cancun surpassed all expectations during the COVID-19 pandemic, from cleanliness to friendliness. Wearing a mask was not an inconvenience during the trip as it added extra peace of mind while traveling. During our departure, the airport was stirring with eager travelers. If you are an eager traveler or just looking to get away I highly recommend booking your next trip soon so you don't lose out on today’s competitive pricing and availability.

Cheers to your next travel experience!
