Is it safe? Should I rent a car? When is the best time to visit and can you guarantee I will not find my neighbors there? So many questions and nobody to answer them. So, this hiker guy may have some answers...
The Azores are deemed one of the safest places to travel in the world and are now reopening to European and international travel. Please check with your airline to make sure you will still be able to travel on your chosen dates. If your flight has been cancelled, we can work with you to adjust your arrival and departure dates or postpone your trip to a later date.
Travelers arriving in the Azores from allowed countries will need to provide paper evidence of a negative test for COVID-19 taken within 72 hours of departure from your original destination, which is highly recommended. Alternatively, you can choose to take a free test upon arrival and wait at quinta minuvida to obtain your result, after which you can travel freely within the island. Although results can return in about 12 hours, in many cases it takes up to 48 hrs. No quarantine is required. Depending on the length of your stay, retests may be necessary at day six. If you return positive, a quarantine or isolation may be required by governmental decrees 206 and 207 of July 31.
Please make sure you are familiar with the travel regulations before you arrive in the Azores.

MINUVIDA AZORES has implemented the Clean & Safe protocol, which includes an emergency action plan and will be fully described upon your arrival and as part of check-in. Do expect some slight disruptions during your stay, which may include: need to wear a mask indoors when in common areas, social distancing in common areas, changes to breakfast serving times and dining room capacity, and other similar restrictions. We are implementing an electronic welcome book through our iOS and Android app to avoid contact. All our guides and information are also available on this site for our guests.
All other activities and experiences offered in the Azores, such as whale-watching and canyoning, may be subject to change and/or cancelation. Please check with your operator before departure and and don't hesitate to check with us as well. Above all, the Azores are one of the safest places you can be to find yourself again, independent of entertainment available.
The current situation is evolving and changing daily, so some measures may be relaxed or reinforced, depending on the situation. We will keep you informed as possible.
