The Covid-19 pandemic has been very stressful for avid travelers especially with the lock downs, travel restrictions and border closures. A lot of people are itching to leave their homes and have a safe, secure getaway. The Maldives is a safe, great place for Americans to travel during this pandemic.
When traveling to the Maldives, it is important to keep in mind that we are still in a pandemic. You should wear a face mask in public, follow social distancing rules and test negative for the Covid-19 prior to arrival and upon your return home.
In The Maldives, you are not required to quarantine upon arrival. However, travelers must follow all precautions in order to be safe on vacation.
Before traveling to the Maldives it is important to keep in mind that you have to exchange your American dollars to the Maldives Rufiyaa which is the currency that they use in the Maldives. American Travelers will find the Maldives offers exceptional value for money -- $1 United States Dollar is equivalent to 15.40 Maldivian Rufiyaa.
The currency is available in denominations of 500, 100, 50, 20, 10 and 5 Rufiyaa notes. You can exchange currency at the airport at the Bank of Maldives Foreign Exchange counter, which is the only dedicated foreign exchange counter.
As a bucket list destination for many people, our Maldives travel package will enable you to uncover some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. You can also partake in water activities --snorkel, scuba dive, jet ski, water tube, the list goes on.
The Maldives has many amazing foods to highlight their culture.
Coconut is an important ingredient in many dishes, served in grated form, as milk or as coconut oil to deep fry foods.
The Maldives is an Islamic nation. With that being said, the population does not consume alcoholic beverages. Local residents drink tea or raa which is a traditional drink that can be tapped from palm trees. Despite this fact, most of the Maldives resorts carry alcohol for their international visitors.
Our Maldives travel package includes accommodations (with all meals). We have soft adventure excursions compliments of Turtle Maldives to make your vacation an affair to remember. For example, we can arrange for you to have a sunset dinner on a beach, sunset cruise and relax on a secluded beach.
We hope you book this Maldives sightseeing trip.
