If you’re looking for a vacation with the perfect mix of relaxation and adventure, the Maldives is the perfect destination for you. The sun-soaked beaches perfect for down-time and warm waters made for play provide a balanced getaway that you won’t forget.
And though the official language of the Maldives is Dhivehi, most Maldivians can speak English with no problems as it is the language taught in their schools, but it’s a nice gesture to learn some common greetings and phrases (Source: ClubMed)
The current exchange rate is 1 USD to 15.35 MVR and doesn’t fluctuate much. The USD is accepted as legal tender throughout most places in the Maldives.
Covid-19 Entry Requirements
Travelers to the Maldives do not need a negative test to enter the country. There are health screening procedures in place upon arrival. If a person tests positive, then they will be forced to quarantine as well as any of their close contacts, according to U.S. Mission to Maldives.
In addition, the CDC does not know the risk level for Covid-19 in the Maldives at the moment, but they say less than 0.05% of cases are reported from travelers at resorts.
Start off your trip to the Maldives with a snorkeling adventure! Coral reefs are the dominant ecosystem in the Maldives, making up the seventh largest coral reef system in the world – so if there’s one thing you have to do while on your vacation, it’s snorkeling.
According to the Convention on Biological Diversity, the Maldives is home to 1,100 marine species, including fish, sharks, turtles, whales, dolphins, and mollusks. So not only will you be able to see the beautiful and vibrant coral reefs while snorkeling, you’ll also be able to swim among the reefs’ many inhabitants.
Looking for a more relaxing day? Try dolphin watching! Grab a pair of binoculars, sit back on a boat, and watch those majestic creatures leap high out of the bright blue sea.
For couples wanting something a little more romantic, try a sunset dinner for two on the beach followed by a romantic cruise to finish off the perfect day.
Try some Maldivian cuisine at your sunset dinner that comes included with your travel package from Allen Batista Travel, Inc. The three main ingredients that make up the cuisine of the Maldives are coconuts, fish (mainly tuna), and starches.
Savor popular dishes such as Mas Huni, shredded smoked tuna with grated coconuts, lemon, and onions, or Gulha, an evening snack similar to a dumpling that’s filled with tuna, onions, chili, and grated coconut.
