Huatulco Oaxaca, Mexico beach destination with the fewest cases of COVID19


In addition to enjoying its beaches, you will live endless activities that will become unforgettable experiences

During the health contingency due to COVID-19, tourists had to take shelter in their places of origin, or even look for a place to live during confinement and spaces such as beaches, all over the world, began to be deserted.

The cessation of mobility and commercial activities greatly affected tourist destinations and many businesses of various lines established near the beaches saw their finances at risk and some even their permanence.

After five months, in some cases, and almost half a year, in others, in Mexico many beaches have begun to receive tourists, with the pertinent sanitary measures, but others continue to present risks.

The safest beaches in Mexico

In Santa María Huatulco, in the state of Oaxaca, from the beginning of the health emergency measures were taken to contain the outbreaks of the new disease and today it is the destination in Mexico with the least accumulated cases.

Practices such as the compulsory use of face masks -or pain of suffering a fine- and healthy distance, in addition to other measures such as sanitizing mats, the application of disinfectant gel, and taking temperature, among others, became daily in Huatulco.

This timely response by the public and the authorities allowed this beautiful destination in the Mexican Pacific to be – since last July – one of the first in the country to reactivate its tourism sector.
