As COVID-19 has become a worldwide pandemic, companies have had to adjust, restructure, and rethink their entire operations. In order to meet government-sanctioned policies, Bric Vacation Rentals has implemented various safety measures to ensure the wellbeing of our valued staff, clientele, and community.

Currently, Bric Vacation Rentals is open and providing accommodations services in Playa del Carmen.
