Mexico is open to travelers. There is no need to provide a negative test or quarantine on arrival, though most resorts ask guests to fill out health questionnaires.

Before you travel home, you will need to get a COVID-19 viral test (regardless of vaccination status) before you travel by air into the United States. You must show your negative result to the airline before you board your flight. In addition to the test, Mexico charges a $12 USD tourist tax for departing tourists at the airport.

Testing Rules & Definitions for Re-Entry to The United States

Vaccinated or Unvaccinated Travelers: The viral test must be conducted on a sample taken no more than 1 day before the flight's departure from a foreign country if you do not show proof of being fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

Prior to your hotel departure, Paradise Blue strongly advises fans check-in to their flights, as many airlines incorporate secondary applications to upload and verify testing information. We recommend fans check-in and upload test results in advance, when possible, to expedite their time at the airport.

Required COVID-19 Testing for Leaving Mexico

Both the Paradisus and Marriott will provide free COVID-19 testing to all guests. Please read the information below to see what is required and schedule your appointment.

Traveling back to the USA, you will need to get a COVID-19 antigen test no more than 1 day before you travel by air into the United States regardless of vaccination status. When you arrive at the appropriate location of your COVID test, you will need your passport. You must show your negative result to the airline before you board your flight. If your flight is at 3:00 PM CT, your test must be no earlier than 3:00 PM CT the day prior.

For Canada, as of April 1, guests who are vaccinated with at least 2 doses of the COVID vaccine no longer need a COVID test of any kind. Guests who are not vaccinated will need an antigen test no more than 1 day before traveling by air.
