As travelers get back on track to continue discovering the world, many destinations, hotels, and experiences find it necessary to guarantee the safety of their visitors. That is why the Safe Travels certification from the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) will be a crucial standard for the tourism industry, as it will ensure the correct return of travel to this new normal. In this post, we want to answer your doubts about this certification and its importance for Grupo Xcaret and the world.
The tourism industry had to adapt to all the changes caused by the COVID-19 pandemic to guarantee the safety of travelers before, during, and after visiting their destination. That’s why the World Health Organization and the World Travel and Tourism Council developed a set of safety protocols called Safe Travels. This certification monitors the correct application of all established hygiene and sanitation protocols, which will be updated as this global contingency develops.
For a destination or attraction to apply for the Safe Travels certificate, it needs to comply with four pillars:
Currently, this certification is available to tour operators, aviation, airports, hotels, outdoor businesses, attractions, short-term rental industry, car rental, and convention centers.
Having the Safe Travels certification implies that you are visiting a destination, a hotel, or an attraction that has concluded with the different operational and administrative adjustments and has taught all its staff how to implement the different necessary protocols to operate in this new normality.
An excellent example of these practices is Grupo Xcaret’s 360° Xafety protocol guide with which the safety and well-being of visitors and coworkers are guaranteed.

When this new certification in the tourism sector was released, many national destinations applied and followed all the established rules to obtain it. Some of these destinations are Cozumel, Baja California Sur, the Mexican Caribbean, Riviera Nayarit, Oaxaca, Campeche, Cancun, Jalisco, Yucatán, Tabasco, Tamaulipas and of course Grupo Xcaret with its parks, tours, and Hotel Xcaret México.
As you will see, this new certification will be the indicator that helps the travelers decide where to enjoy their next vacation and which will guarantee a safe experience at their destination. That is why at Grupo Xcaret we are very excited to receive you with all the hygiene and sanitation measures to ensure that you and your family have the best experiences in Cancun and Riviera Maya.
