The pandemic changed the way we travel and the world is slowly reopening. Elevated protocols have been in place for travelers at all-inclusive resorts in Mexico and the Caribbean.
We’re dreaming about traveling again, especially with a tropical vibe, and a newly released study even said that consumers would give up their savings, job, and/or sex life to travel again.
I won’t go that far and maybe you won’t either but people are traveling and the idea of dipping my toes in the sand with a fruity umbrella drink in hand sounds really good.
