Safe Together - The Club Med Hygiene & Safety Measures

As travel continues to rebound around the world, Club Med has enhanced their Safe Together hygiene and safety protocols to ensure peace of mind for all guests. Club Med Punta Cana, Club Med Michès Playa Esmeralda, Club Med Cancún and Club Med Ixtapa Pacific will follow the European Union’s reopening guidelines, as well as recommendations from the CDC, by requiring all travelers aged 11 or older to show proof of complete vaccination upon arrival or a negative PCR or Antigen test, taken within 72 hours prior to arrival.

For all Resorts, before traveling, it is recommended that all travelers verify specific entry requirements as outlined by the local authorities and governments.

This decision is a part of our collective effort in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. This policy will reinforce the Safe Together protocols in our Resorts and help to provide the most worry-free experience possible for our clients.
