Zika virus free tourism destinations in Mexico
, ,

Do you have concerns about Zika?

If you have been following the news about the spread of Zika virus through the Americas, read our update on the situation in Mexico. It is safe to travel here and the tourism industry in the Mexican Caribbean and other parts of the country has not been affected. Read more (member log in required).

Although Mexico has been included in the list of countries at risk from the Zika virus, the number of cases reported has been minimal, only 143 cases as of March 7. They were detected principally in rural areas far from the country’s major tourist destinations. As you know, Mexico is a huge country with a total area of 1,964,375 square kilometers. It is the 14th largest nation in the world, and has a population of almost 122 million people (121,736,809, 2015 est.).

The Mexican Ministry of Health is monitoring the Zika virus and has implemented additional measures to contain and prevent it from spreading. These include increased spraying to control mosquito populations, patient screening and campaigns to educate people on protective measures that they can take against the Aedes aegypti mosquito to avoid getting bitten and also to prevent the spread of Zika. For example, covering cisterns and other containers with standing water in homes and gardens deprives the mosquito of breeding grounds.

Royal Resorts has a fumigation program and all areas of the resorts and the rooms are sprayed on a monthly basis. Our sixth resort Grand Residences by Royal Resorts, located to the south of Puerto Morelos has a similar spraying program.

Cancun, Puerto Morelos, Playa del Carmen and other municipal governments in the state of Quintana Roo have ongoing mosquito fumigation campaigns and these are being boosted in line with precautionary measures being taken by the Mexican government.

 

Precautions to take on vacation

Avoid getting bitten by mosquitoes. The Aedes mosquito bites during the day and is most active in the early morning and late afternoon.

  • Apply insect repellent regularly*
  • Wear long sleeves and pants; loose cotton clothing in pale colors is recommended
  • Wash and cover containers and dishes that hold water
  • Keep doors, windows and screens closed
  • Use a mosquito net when staying in jungle lodges or cabañas outside major resort areas or hotels with no air-conditioning
  • Follow prenatal care guidelines

Until more is known about Zika virus, the Center for Disease Control is recommending special precautions for pregnant women and women trying to become pregnant. They should talk to their doctor about their travel plans.

* Products containing DEET, picaridin, IR3535, and some oil of lemon eucalyptus and para-menthane-diol products provide longer-lasting protection and are recommended by the Center for Disease Control (CDC). Products with oil of lemon eucalyptus should not be used on children under the age of three.

Royal Resorts Rental Program managed by Royal Club Vacations

Growth of Royal Resorts Rental Program, Potential for Members

If your 2016 travel plans are changing due to work or family commitments, you may be thinking about renting your villa. Why not try the Royal Resorts Rental Program?

Since 2012, the Royal Resorts Rental Program managed by Royal Club Vacations has seen remarkable growth and continues to expand. More and more members are depositing their unit in the program with positive results. The prospects for a successful rental have increased dramatically. The number of Room Nights deposited by members was 104,151 in 2015 of which 91,636 were booked, giving a utilization rate of 88 percent.

Due to the popularity of All-Inclusive vacations in the Mexican Caribbean, implementing the REFINE package at The Royal Cancun, The Royal Sands and The Royal Haciendas has brought greater rental opportunities for member units. Of the Room Nights deposited by members in 2015, 59 percent were at these three resorts, also accounting for 58 percent of the Room Nights booked at all five resorts. Yet demand is also buoyant for The Royal Caribbean and The Royal Islander, as there is still a sector of the market in search of European Plan (room only) properties.

In fact, the demand for rental units is such that Reservations Center representatives sometimes call members to see whether they are planning to vacation in their unit and if they are not, they recommend the rental program as an option. For certain weeks with the greatest demand, the Reservations Center occasionally offers members who are unable to travel a special prepaid rental rate for their unit.

With a call center, online reservations center and marketing campaigns, the Rental Program is an even more effective tool for members to use whenever they wish to rent their unit. You can have every confidence in its representatives to work on your behalf and promote your villa.

If you would like to deposit your week or learn more about the rental program call Royal Club Vacations at US & Canada Toll Free 1 800 791 4423, Rest of the World (954) 736-2200; Email: rentalinquiries@royalclubvacations.com

Bringing Gifts to Children in Leona Vicario on Dia de Reyes

Spreading Happiness this 2016, on January 7, Royal Resorts Foundation volunteers visited the village of Leona Vicario to surprise the children at Vicente Guerrero nursery school with toys, the traditional rosca de reyes cake and piñatas.

According to tradition, the Three Kings or Reyes Magos bring Mexican children gifts on January 6, Dia de Reyes or Epiphany. On this occasion, 147 children aged between three and five years were the guests of honor at a surprise party. They took turns to hit the piñata, all rushing in when it broke to collect the candies that showered down. After much fun and party games, they sat down for a slice of cake and fruit juice. As the party drew to a close, they lined up to receive a gift.

From dolls and superheroes to cars, tea sets, board games and footballs, the toys had been collected over the Christmas period at the four Royal Resorts in Cancun and The Royal Haciendas in the Riviera Maya. Foundation volunteers also donated school and art supplies to the school.

Leona Vicario is a rural community where poverty levels are high. Inhabitants earn a meager living from agriculture and forestry or work in tourism and construction in Cancun and the Riviera Maya, many only returning to the village to be with their families at weekends or once a month. For some of these children, the toy they received from the Royal Resorts Foundation was their only Dia de Reyes gift.

The Royal Resorts Foundation would like to thank the Royal Resorts members, guests and staff who supported the Toy Drive. With your generous help we were able to bring a little magic into the day for these children.
