Mexicans have begun to resume their vacation plans. The consequences of COVID-19 forced many tourists to postpone their travel plans: however, the reopening of destinations, following the new security protocols, ensures an upcoming revival of the tourism sector.

According to a survey carried out in May by KAYAK, the online travel search engine, where 628 electronic responses were received, revealing data about national travelers, their destinations, and the way they plan to resume their trips were released.

71% of those surveyed expressed their interest in resuming tourist trips in the next six months. Similarly, the results showed that the first trips of Mexicans will be thought of as a family, or visiting another member of the family that they have not seen for some time, leaving business trips in the last interest.

For the Mexican traveler, national destinations will be the priority on their next vacation. Most of the respondents affirm that they will first travel through the national territory, while another percentage will think of international destinations (when the restrictions of other countries allow it).

According to KAYAK, the trend destinations during COVID-19, according to the Mexican population, which resulted in the highest number of searches on the platform, are as follows:

In recent years, Merida has gained strength as one of the favorite destinations for Mexicans to vacation, due to its multiple tourist attractions.

Mexicans will seek to reach these destinations mainly by air. 58% of the respondents reaffirmed this idea, while 25% will do it by road, with destinations that are within a few hours of their location. Only 2% have considered enjoying a cruise.


These destinations are trending, in these months of the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic, in which the authorities have strongly recommended going out as little as possible, so as not to be infected.

The pandemic forced many tourists to postpone their travel plans.


But, with the reopening of destinations, under the new safety and health protocols, a forthcoming revival of the tourism sector is predicted, Forbes points out.

Thus, Mexicans have begun to resume their vacation plans.
