5 Advantages of Traveling in the New Normal

Travel is a crucial part of the human experience, it always has been and always will be—and although COVID-19 has set a few restraints on our relationships, behaviors, and particularly travel, some of us are discovering new ways of adapting to what we now call ‘’the new normal’’. As cautious travelers anxiously wait for things to settle, avid travelers are already setting out for their next adventure, as they see this as an opportunity to take advantage of the many perks of this new landscape of travel. Here are 5 advantages of traveling in the new normal that will have you heading straight for the airport.

5 Advantages of Traveling in the New Normal

1. A heightened appreciation for travel

The fact that we couldn’t travel for a long while makes the experience even sweeter now we can. Apart from being great for your mental health, travel is the best way to disconnect, discover a new destination, or immerse in outdoor activities where you can feel absolute freedom.  Additionally, it’s also a way to reconnect with nature and let go of the routine—if only for a few days—and even forget about the pandemic. Imagine how much it feels to snorkel in the Caribbean or cut through the turquoise waters on a jet ski after these options were taken off the table for so long.

2. Even safer vacations than before

The new normal, in many ways, deems travel conditions to be safer than before. In fact, during the pandemic, airports have become among the most health-conscious places in the world. It’s practically guaranteed that preventive measures will be in place from the airport to your resort and everywhere in between—and you can bet every single person on your flight has gone through an intense screening process before getting onto the plane and all venues. Such measures are usually made visible in public areas and on company websites for traveler’s  peace of mind, as is our comprehensive Purely Palace preventive program.

3. Say hello to the best selfies ever

For those who love to share, the new normal for travel has made photo opportunities a dream. Fewer crowds and maximum capacities mean that you no longer have to wait long hours to catch the perfect pic on the beach, in front of your favorite oil painting, or pretending to hold Chichen Itza in the palm of your hand. Taking a trip to an overbooked destination is unheard of these days—and that’s not necessarily a bad thing, as you can now live the experience of being a secluded oasis while still following safety regulations.

4. Everything, in the palm of your hand

As we know, technology has played a huge role in keeping us sane during the pandemic, as well as offering travelers looking to get away the chance to do so while staying connected to it all. Thanks to technology, we're living in a time where you can enjoy an escape from the daily grind without sacrificing your comforts and conveniences. New app features offered by airlines and resorts now allow you to check in, upgrade or make dinner reservations before you even arrive, order breakfast from your poolside cabana, snap photos, and share via social media instantly through your mobile device or computer with high-speed Wi-Fi. This automation shift also helps minimize waiting times at the entrance of the sites, airports, and hotels, and restaurants—allowing for continuous sanitization and less physical contact.

5. Save, share and feel the love

Traveling in the new normal is very different from everything we knew before. And it should be, after all, new is not necessarily a bad thing—especially if you can save a few bucks. A combination of high-quality travel at inexpensive prices allows us to finally visit friends and family and whisk them away to new destinations and share new experiences.

Additionally, you get to contribute to the hundreds of families whose source of income relies on tourism and who had to pause their duties due to the pandemic. Wherever you go, your visit is bound to put a huge smile on the faces of those who greet you, and the service you receive will be more heartfelt than ever, With so many perks to traveling during the new normal, the reasons to dust off our bags and prepare for a new adventure are endless. After all, 2022 isn’t called the year of travel for nothing!

#BestServer of our entire stay 7 night vacay

I want to give a BIG shout out to Fernando for his #TopShelfService. My family and I have been on vacation for 7 nights at the #SunriseMoonPalace and his service was the perfect example of why you would come to this resort. If you enjoy Indian cuisine, this is your spot! Enjoy


Swimming with dolphins was wonderful: they were humanely treated and not mobbed by tourists.

Overall great experience: the rooms, food (many options were available), drinks and service are all great. Grounds neatly kept.
However, the beach and water has a lot of trash in it (beware, swimmers).

Love it!

We celebrated our daughter’s graduation from Dental school and my birthday May 23-30. From start to finish we had a great week! The accommodations were fabulous, the restaurants were excellent and the service was over the top!
