The Mexican Caribbean state of Quintana Roo is preparing to reopen itself to tourism from June 8, Governor Carlos Joaquin Gonzalez has announced.

In the interim, area tourism and hospitality companies, particularly in the popular holiday hotspots of Cancun and Riviera Maya region, are bringing back employees to begin training in the ways of the “new normal”, Travel Pulse has reported.

“We are getting ready to restart operations,” said Roberto Cintrón Gómez, president of the Hotel Association of Cancun, Puerto Morelos and Isla Mujeres.

While Covid-19 has not yet been eradicated in the region, Quintana Roo has just instituted a new certification programme to help tourism-centric businesses and service providers demonstrate to visitors that they’re adhering to the highest level of hygiene and sanitation standards, in a bid to restore consumer confidence.

Now, a new private initiative has been launched to actively attract tourists, both international and domestic, back to vacation in their favourite Mexican Caribbean coastal haunts, and it’s entitled the #Come2MexicanCaribbean campaign.

The discounts and promotions associated with the campaign will revolve around the number “2,” per the hashtag slogan.

Participating hotels will be offering an additional two free nights to guests with paid stays of two nights or more, two kids can stay for free with two paying adult guests and car rental businesses will be giving customers an extra two days free when they pay for at least two days’ hire, the Travel Pulse report said.

Participating spas and golf courses will provide 20% discounts as part of the promotion; some theme parks will be offering two-for-one admissions, and select restaurants will also offer related discounts.
