Scroll through any Instagram or Twitter timeline and you’re bound to see photos of travelers living their best lives in Tulum and Cancun. If you’re having extreme wanderlust right now, a trip to Mexico can be the getaway you need while staying safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Mexico is ideal for a socially distanced vacation because of its abundance of outdoor activities, secluded beaches, and increased sanitation guidelines. 

Dario Flota Ocampo, director of the Quintana Roo Tourism Board tells Travel Pulse, “The Mexican Caribbean has unlimited options for travelers that want to embrace nature’s call, to experience it both in conventional and unexpected ways. The versatility of its destinations allows for an intimate retreat while being able to explore all the attractions that characterize it.”

Here are locations in Mexico which will allow you to enjoy a socially distanced vacation. 

Head to this island where you can stay at Ventanas al Mar Cozumel, an oceanfront property, offering amazing views of the stars at night.

During the day, make your way to Pearl Farm where you can take a tour of how pearls are cultivated. 

Located about a two-hour drive and ferry ride away from Cancun is Isla Holbox. Although there are no cars on the island, visitors can use dune buggies as a form of transportation.

While on the island, stay at Aldea Kuka and enjoy the hotel’s nightly sunset yoga.

Only 40 minutes from Tulum, Coba is a great place to visit to learn about Mayan history as well as pampering yourself at Coqui Coba Papolchac Residence & Spa

Head 30 minutes north of Cancun to experience full relaxation at hotels such as Grand Palladium, Excellence properties, and more.

If you’re into outdoor activities, head to Grand Costa Maya where you can paddleboard or go diving!
