We do not know for sure when it will be a good time to travel again, but surely there are more than one of us who would like it to be as soon as possible.
The questions at this point are: what will travel be like in 2021 and where will we go?
According to the ” Annual Travel Trends Report for 2021 “, prepared by Expedia , Mexican tourists, if they travel this year, we will preferably do so to national destinations.
And the taste for the main beach destinations will remain in force, to the extent that Cancun will surely be the most sought after destination, although some destinations such as Los Cabos, Huatulco and Chetumal will also have relevance.
In terms of searches, the ranking would be as follows:
2.- Riviera Maya / Tulum / Playa del Carmen
3.- Puerto Vallarta / Nuevo Vallarta / Riviera Nayarit
5.- Los Cabos
9.- Las Vegas
10.- Chetumal / Costa Maya
As for international destinations, Mexicans could be looking to travel to Las Vegas, New York, Orlando, Punta Cana and Orange County.
In second place are more distant options such as Paris, Tokyo, French Polynesia, Whistler in Canada and the Maldives.
Travel trends in 2021
On the other hand, the metasearch engine Kayak also released some of the travel trends in 2021 at the regional level.
According to their data, Latin Americans prefer natural environments and outdoor spaces for this year since they facilitate social distancing and enjoy with tranquility.
The second of the travel trends in 2021 will be car rental and road trips that allow making the stops that are required to get to know different environments and cultures. In addition, this form of transport makes it easy to travel safely, only with the chosen travel group.
SPEND YOUR HOLIDAYS AT HOME OR IN A HOTEL
What is called “staycations” will also be a trend this year, according to the Kayak report, mainly due to budget and time issues. Of course, during the rest days, activities such as going to a restaurant, living a spa day, doing sports outdoors or some other could be chosen, as long as the surrounding conditions allow it.
Another option could be to spend a few days in a hotel where an activity program is also contemplated.
In the case of traveling in 2021, Kayak remembers to check the restrictions and health policies of each destination when traveling.
Finally, a study prepared by Skyscanner highlights that by 2021, flight and hotel reservations are expected to increase with only a month in advance or less.
