What a Post Covid Vacation Looks like

First Post – COVID Vacation

This will be our first post- Covid vacation since our planned trip to Jamaica in March 2020 was canceled. Since then, we have had a credit sitting with WestJet calling us daily to be used. Like many, we have been stuck not only in our own country but our own house for periods of time, and going a bit stir crazy. It is time, it’s time to get back out in the sunshine. It’s time to feel the ocean breeze on our faces and dip our toes in the sand. Time to sip cocktails by the pool and dance the night away.

First vacation in May 2022

I get they have eased up restrictions and I am thankful because it means I can get away. But I do still plan to follow some of the recommendations such as wearing a mask on the plane and at the airport. I plan to try and social distance as much as possible and sanitize my hands often. But what else should I expect to be doing? How will this change my regular travel advice and expectations?

The Catalonia Riveira & Yucatan Hotel

The Catalonia Riviera & Yucatan Hotel came with some good reviews. But if you are like me you have to take each review with a grain of salt. Everyone has a different opinion of what is good and bad and what they are willing to put up with. If you don’t know I am a certified Travel agent so I can book my own travel along with my family and friends. Therefore I have no reservation about reaching out to the hotel directly to ask for special services. Take this vacation, for instance, it is my 20th wedding anniversary and I let them know that with of course the expectation that they will go above and beyond to make this a great vacation for us.

Post-COVID Vacation Expectations

When I talk about a post-COVID vacation I do realize the threat is not over and I still take all my precautions but it also does mean travel has changed. The first change will be to arrive at least four hours before departures. And then Honestly after that, I have no idea what it will be like at the airport, that will come in the follow-up post. Stay Tuned.
