Velas Resorts in Mexico have reopened their doors to domestic and international travelers Monday, June 15. The resort collection’s properties to reopen include Grand Velas in Los Cabos, Riviera Maya and Riviera Nayarit, Mar del Cabo in Baja California Sur and Velas Vallarta in Puerto Vallarta.

All facilities and amenities are opening in accordance with the resort’s comprehensive Stay Safe with Velas Program. The health and sanitary protocols for both guests and staff members adhere to standards dictated by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the government of Mexico. Sanitizing mats and booths, touchless hand sanitizing dispensers, increased cleaning and sanitation with both EPA-chemicals and UV light, and special COVID-19 (coronavirus) training for staff are examples of protocols being implemented by the resort collection.

To decrease in-person contact should guests’ desire, the resort collection has launched new features on the Velas Resorts’ mobile app. A concierge chat and restaurant and spa menus as well as pre-registration for fitness classes and other resort activities are some of the offerings.
