My family and I planned a trip to Akumal, Mexico, in May of 2020 in the midst of the pandemic. We planned the trip for the second week of July 2020, hoping that things would be opening up in Mexico and getting back on track. We had vacationed in Akumal for the last 3 summers, so we knew that the area wouldn't be overcrowded and that having a private house would be better than hanging at a beach resort. So with our plans made, we held our collective breaths that things in the world would be right enough to travel and take a break from all the Covid-19 news.
