Covid Prevention, Travel documents and Terms
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW:
We are implementing all the necessary measures to provide you with a safe vacation and have initiated the “Together against Covid” program partnered with Cotelco (Hotel and Turism Association of Colombia). This program created by biosafety experts complies with all of the requirements needed so that you may count on a safe stay in any of our hotels.
We also designed biosafety protocols based on the recommendations of the WHO (World Health Organization) to reinforce our hygiene process. Our staff’s health is traced daily and we established monitoring, capacity and physical distancing protocols so you and our coworkers can stay safe.
