The good news is there are 3 tropical countries you can travel to right now that are fully open to tourists without any testing, quarantine, or Covid-19 vaccine needed.
The Dominican Republic is fully open to tourists without any tests, quarantine, or Covid-19 vaccine. Travelers are not required to provide pre-departure testing to enter the Dominican Republic. Still, airlines may require proof of a negative Covid-19 test for boarding. Currently, face masks are required in public spaces and on public transportation. Restaurants are open, with seating limited, and bars and nightclubs remain closed. There is a curfew in place for movement throughout the country.
Mexico is currently open to tourists without any tests, vaccines or quarantine required.

There is a curfew in certain areas, and masks are required indoors.
Costa Rica is currently open to tourists without any tests, quarantine or vaccine required to enter. The only requirement is for all visitors to have travel insurance to cover the costs of COVID-19 related medical care and quarantine if they contract the disease while visiting Costa Rica.
