The climate is perfect, amazing views, and the monuments make Taormina a location admired by all who visit. Views of the ancient Amphitheater against a backdrop of Mount Etna and the sea beyond. In the 1800’s, its beauty was mentioned it the book Italian Journey. Thus, Taormina became a mandatory stop by  the European aristocracy to enrich their own culture. My pick for your romantic vacation in Italy is the Belmond Grand Hotel Timeo.

Jamaica has some beautiful resorts, and the one to top my list for the most romantic resorts is located in Negril. The home of relaxation, and famous for beautiful sunsets. The 7-mile stretch of bright white sandy beach, and picturesque cliffs overlooking the emerald green sea. This is the place for you to come and soothe your soul. You will enjoy the slow pace of life, with the freshest seafood caught daily, and the most amazing beach sunsets you will ever see. Very little compares to a long lazy day soaking up the sun on the beaches of Negril. The home of ‘All Right’ is just what you need for a romantic getaway and you will not be disappointed with a stay at the Spa Retreat Boutique Hotel.

Cancun & Riviera Maya Travel

Cancun & Riviera Maya travel reopened on June 8, 2020. The government has implemented strict safety protocols that must be followed. Businesses had to apply for a safety certificate to show that their protocols are in place to reopen to tourism. The Mexican government is using a stop light system for reopening. The stop light system used is red, orange, yellow then green.

Cancun is currently at a level orange, and may get permission next week to go to yellow as the number of cases is declining. Yellow means that hotels will be able to increase occupancy to 60%; currently it is at 30%. Safety protocols are in place throughout the airport and all hotels. Travelers will have to wear masks at the airport and in transportation vehicles. At the airport, arriving guests have their temperature taken using a thermal scanner from a distance. For a complete rundown of the experience upon arriving in Cancun and what is being done, check out this video.

Cancun has already received nearly 70,000 tourists in less than a month since reopening, as reported in the Mexicanist. That is great news for the return of tourism.

Mexico is one of the destinations that does not require travelers to present proof of a negative COVID test. Many islands such as Jamaica, Puerto Rico and St. Lucia are currently requiring proof of a negative test to be provided within a specific time frame. The decision to travel is one that many are struggling with, but the news from Cancun is promising.
