MAZATLAN — The beaches and hotels of Mazatlán, Mexico will be reopening on July 1 to tourists following 90 days of safety protocols training.
During the three-month closure, the destination established and implemented strict safety measures in partnership with Preverisk, an international certification company. AS such, the World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) has awarded Mazatlán with the Safe Travels stamp, recognizing its commitment to travellers’ safety.
All local services that are part of the Responsible Tourism Chain will participate in ‘the new normal’, including the airport, transportation services, hotels, restaurants and tours.
“Everyone is ready to provide the traditional hospitality and smiles of the Mazatlecans to our visitors,” said Oscar Pérez, Secretary of Tourism for the state. “The tourists will experience a few operational adjustments in the destination, however, the beaches, attractions, gastronomy, warmth and beauty of Mazatlán remain the same.”
Noting how it has been “preparing for this moment,” El Cid Resorts in Mazatlán will reopen its doors to international tourists on July 1. El Cid’s #AlwaysCommitted safety program has been endorsed by Preverisk, and it has also received the Safe Travels stamp by the WTTC for its Mazatlán, Cancun/Riviera Maya and Cozumel properties.
“At El Cid Resorts we will continue to deliver the best vacation experiences in all of our resorts by providing guest quality service and high safety and cleanliness standards. We are ready to welcome you back!” said the hotel company.
Mazatlán is the latest destination in Mexico to announce reopening plans. The Quintana Roo Tourism Board, which represents Cancun, Riviera Maya, Playa del Carmen and more, has already started its gradual reopening, Riviera Nayarit reopened hotels and restaurants on June 15, while Los Cabos will also be reopening its international airport terminal in July. Plus, earlier this month, Air Canada Vacations welcomed its first guests back to Cancun with a flight from Toronto Pearson.
