The revival in Mexico of the It goes hand in hand with the healthy practices that service providers in Mexico must develop. To take care and take care of ourselves we are going to expose healthy tourism practices in Mexico.

The new normality affects the daily life of all citizens, we must be forewarned and be able to cope so as not to expose the spread of covid-19 in our activities. Tourism in Mexico, as well as reality in general, at this moment has meant a turn in practices. We are going to see how the Mexican tourist guides act before the new normality to give security to the tourist and the population in general.


To service providers such as our case (tourist guides accredited by the Government of Mexico NOM-09 TUR-200), we are presented with a new way of acting in the face of the pandemic that has affected the entire world. During this time of pandemic, there have been several courses that have been given to train Mexico tourism providers. Both guides, tourist agencies, transporters, hoteliers or restaurants have been offered free training for the good of the sector from government institutions and private associations.

This effort of the Mexican tourism sector is the evident desire to continue offering quality services to the visitor. Accredited guides and certified agencies are working on healthy tourism practices in Mexico, in addition to the quality we give as professionals in the sector. All of us must be registered in the National Tourism Registry (RNT) of the Ministry of Tourism.


We have taken various prevention training and healthy practices

  • IMSS: The Mexican Institute of Social Security has offered online courses from which we take 'All about the prevention of COVID-19' and 'Recommendations for a safe return to work before COVID -19'
  • SEFOTUR: the certification of Healthy Practices granted by the Ministry of Tourism Promotion in Yucatan
  • AMTAVE: is the Mexican Association of Adventure Tourism and Ecotourism, a private sector body established in 1994 that represents companies dedicated to operating adventure tourism and ecotourism in Mexico. Meet AMTAVE, who group together more than 130 of the best specialized companies

With all this, we feel reinforced and able to receive and advise Mexican tourism in the face of this new normality due to the covid-19.


We all need to take care of ourselves to take care of the rest. We must create awareness of new practices in the current coexistence with SARS-CoV-2. If you are a tourist in Mexico or travel to other countries, follow these indications.
