Villa del Palmar at the Islands of Loreto Receives "Secure Travel Seal" from WTTC
The state of Baja California Sur has always been a popular tourist destination, known for cities like Cabo San Lucas, La Paz, and Loreto. Here, travelers expect to discover the wild beauty of the natural environment and the traditional culture that makes Mexico a vibrant country. At the same time, travelers from all over the world have come to count on safe travel in these cities, and even now with the current Coronavirus situation, they can continue to expect safe and healthy travel throughout Baja California Sur. Along with the state of Baja California Sur, Villa del Palmar at the Islands of Loreto, a family-friendly beachfront resort, has become a leader in the fight to control the spread of COVID-19, earning itself the Safe Travels Seal from the World Travel and Tourism Council.
The World Travel and Tourism Council has been researching and collaborating with the tourism industry for over 30 years to help ensure safe, seamless, and sustainable travel to Loreto Mexico and the rest of the world. When the pandemic broke out and safe travel was compromised, the organization stepped up as a leader in the industry and created a series of guidelines, specified to different sectors of the travel industry. Destinations and businesses who uphold superior standards for preventive measures and protocols, such as Baja California Sur and Villa del Palmar at the Islands of Loreto, are being awarded with the Safe Travels Stamp, an award that the United Nations World Tourism Organization has recognized as well.
Because travel to Loreto Mexico brings more and more visitors from around the world to this charming small town every year, entering into a quarantine early on was vital to the community’s health. Saying goodbye to guests allowed resorts to close their doors and protect their employees. The vigorous standards put in place to ensure Loreto Mexico safety and health have allowed the city to pass through the worst of the pandemic, but it’s only with a continued commitment to preventive measures that hotels and businesses can reopen. With these safe travel protocols in place, families and friends can continue to enjoy the tranquility and beauty of the Loreto Mexico beaches.
As a leader within the community, Villa del Palmar at the Islands of Loreto shut its doors even before this was mandated by the government, continuing to pay staff members during this crisis while allowing them to stay at home with their families. While the doors were closed, the resort focused on researching the best Coronavirus safety measures to implement when travel to Loreto Mexico resumed. When guests return to this beloved hotel, they’ll still be able to enjoy pampering themselves in the spa, playing rounds of golf at TPC Danzante Bay, and dining on gourmet Mexican cuisine while looking out over the Loreto Mexico beaches. However, there will be some changes to the daily protocols of the resort. Before entering Villa del Palmar Loreto, all guests and staff will have their temperatures taken, and employees will be given freshly laundered uniforms to change into. Throughout the resort, you’ll notice plexiglass protectors, antibacterial hand gel, and limited capacity in common areas. The daily cleaning of the resort will now include disinfectant cleanings of common spaces and commonly touched surfaces throughout the day. These changes prioritize Loreto Mexico safety so that travelers can continue to enjoy the hospitality of the resort and the fun of vacationing on the Loreto Mexico beaches.
It’s because of this commitment to health and safety throughout the state that Baja California Sur has earned the Safe Travels Stamp, and with the priority given to Loreto Mexico safety, guests can have confidence when booking a vacation to Villa del Palmar at the Islands of Loreto. While they’ll be encouraged to practice good personal hygiene and social distancing, guests will still be greeted with warm hospitality as they enjoy paddleboarding on the calm waters of the Sea of Cortez, dining of the fresh flavors of Mexican cuisine in the best Loreto restaurants, and making memories with their families at the resort.
