Health & Safety
Since the emergence of COVID-19 in 2019, most destinations, airports, air carriers, hotels, restaurants, transfer companies, car rental companies, shops, and excursions have established COVID-19 safety measures and precautions that may change from day to day. These safety measures may include but are not limited to curfews, attraction closings and reduced hours, size of group gatherings, social distancing requirements, health screenings, the requirement of masks, proof of COVID-19 immunization, and self-quarantine requirements. In addition, you must follow the current CDC guidelines and the recommendations of health officials. Please note that any public location where people have been or are present provides an inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 and we cannot guarantee that you will not be exposed during your vacation. By traveling, you agree that you assume these inherent risks associated with your vacation. Any and all additional costs will be your sole responsibility.
Before booking travel and before your travel dates, we strongly recommend that you visit the U.S. Department of State website travel.state.gov, as well as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website, cdc.gov, which include important information on foreign travel such as travel advisories, warnings and restrictions issued by the U.S. government. You are responsible for complying with the health requirements of the countries you intend to visit. If you make a booking, you are confirming that you have followed our recommendations above and forever waive any argument that we should have done anything further with respect to warnings or alerts. Check with your physician regarding any immunizations that may be recommended or required. Use common sense while vacationing abroad. For example, if you choose to drink alcohol, do so in moderation. In addition, be cognizant of the effects of mixing alcohol and certain medications. Should someone in your party become ill, alert the resort front desk for immediate medical attention or call the emergency number provided by the resort. Also advise your Resort Representative as soon as possible, who may be able to provide assistance. If you have medical issues or concerns about medical services, we urge you to contact your resort with specific questions. Please be aware that medical standards and training of emergency responders and resort medical facilities vary greatly, and health care abroad may not be the same as you might expect at home. It may be standard policy for hospitals and medical providers abroad to require cash payment upfront for services. Check with your insurance provider regarding claims for reimbursement. Sports and aquatic equipment, especially scuba gear, may not meet U.S. safety standards and many resort pools and beaches may lack lifeguards. Balcony railing heights in Mexico are lower than the mandated heights in the United States, and also may be lower in other countries. Low balcony railings create a risk of falls, which may result in serious injury or death. Bottled drinking water is recommended.
