Los Cabos: A Safe Destination

Los Cabos: A Safe Destination

With the widespread availability of effective vaccines, COVID-19 may soon be in the rearview mirror.

After 13 months of walking on eggshells, what a relief!

Up until now, no destination in the hemisphere has done a better job of suppressing the infection rate of coronavirus than Los Cabos. In fact, Forbes Travel Guide recently announced that Los Cabos has been named the world’s first VERIFIED travel destination after nearly all hotels earned an independent health validation from Sharecare, a digital health company.

Among the region’s 85 hotels, 84 have completed and maintained verification on more than 360 global health security standards. These standards range from hygiene protocols and cleaning products and procedures to ventilation and health safety communication for guests and employees.

“It’s an acknowledgment and an encouragement to continue working towards the goal of offering the highest level of satisfaction to our visitors,” said Rodrigo Esponda, managing director of Los Cabos Tourism Board, about achieving VERIFIED status. “Los Cabos has always been a destination that has excelled in exceeding the expectations of visitors, even repeat visitors.” The certification is particularly meaningful for hotels, given that tourism makes up 80% of the Los Cabos economy. It’s a given that health safety measures are top-of-mind among international travelers.

Quivira Los Cabos was an early adapter. A robust CARE program (Conscientious Service, Advanced Standards, Rigorous Sanitation, Elevated Hygiene), coupled with onsite COVID-19 testing services, is in place, making it easy for owners and their guests to comply with U.S. travel regulations.

“As the first VERIFIED destination, Los Cabos and its tourism board are setting an important precedent for both the hospitality industry and other communities around the globe,” said Alberto Coppel, CEO of Pueblo Bonito Resorts. “We’ve put the health and safety of travelers, associates and residents at the forefront. Visitors to Los Cabos should rest assured that health security has a new standard.”
