Mexico Requires Proof of Vaccination or Negative Test at Popular Destinations

Americans are traveling to Mexico more than ever. But if you plan to go to Mexico, especially at some of the most popular destinations, you will need to show proof of vaccination or a negative test result.

You don’t need to show proof when entering the country, but authorities in at least two states have announced new requirements. Mazatlán Mayor Luis Guillermo Benítez Torres said citizens must carry their vaccination certificates with them when they are in all public places, while Quintana Roo Governor Carlos Joaquín said people won’t be permitted to enter such places unless they can prove they have been vaccinated or recently tested negative to Covid-19, Mexico Daily News reports.

Quintana Roo includes some of the most popular tourist areas in the country such as Cancun, Playa del Carmen, Puerto Morelos, Cozumel, Riviera Maya and the ancient Mayan ruins in Tulum. That means that the new requirement will affect most Americans traveling to Mexico.

Quintana Roo is currently a high risk orange spot on the Stoplight style map of Mexico. It is one of several states that have seen a recent increase in case numbers as the highly contagious Delta strain of the coronavirus takes hold in Mexico.

Based in NYC. Points/miles enthusiast for years and actively writing about it for the last 6+ years at Danny the Deal Guru. I'm always looking out for deals. Making a few bucks is always nice, but the traveling is by far the best part of this business.
