While the U.S. has a plethora of incredible landscapes and interesting places to explore, many Americans are feeling the need to branch outside of the country’s borders. Back in October, we shared a list of seven international destinations that Americans can visit, including Costa Rica, Mexico, and Croatia. And now, just in time for summer, even more countries are opening up to visitors who are vaccinated against COVID-19 and/or who can provide negative COVID-19 test results upon arrival.

Here are four more countries that Americans can travel to right now—or will be able to very soon. For a full list of Inspirato destinations that are open to visitors, go to our destination status page for the latest updates.

Greece


As of May 14, Greece has reopened for travelers from the U.S. and other countries—and just in time to enjoy the deep blue seas and sunny skies of summer. Visitors must provide documentation proving that they’ve been fully vaccinated against  COVID-19 (14 days after the final dose). Children and individuals who have not received a vaccine are required to provide proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test result taken no more than 72 hours before arrival.

While much of Europe remains closed to tourists, Greece is an exception you should not miss. Explore the iconic whitewashed villages in Mykonos and Santorini or dive into enthralling history in Athens, one of the world’s most ancient cities.

Iceland


If you can show proof of a full COVID-19 vaccination or prior COVID-19 infection, you can visit Iceland. Summer is an ideal time to visit the ethereal country and explore its dramatic volcanoes, enchanting landscapes, and hot springs bubbling up all over this geothermal haven. And don’t miss the unique and eccentric city of Reykjavik.

All visitors must preregister on this website before entering the country. You can read all about the requirements needed on Iceland’s tourism website.

France


France is also planning to ease travel restrictions this summer as long as COVID-19 levels remain under control. U.S. passport holders may visit the country if they can provide a “health pass,” which will be some sort of proof of vaccination or a recent negative COVID-19 test. France is currently working out the details of what the health pass will be and how to obtain it. Read more about the country’s plans to reopen.

After more than a year of being kept from Europe’s most alluring countries, a trip to France sound incredibly delightful—the food, the pastries, the art, and the culture. We can’t wait to go.

Anguilla


Craving a Caribbean getaway? Beginning July 1, fully vaccinated visitors will no longer be required to quarantine or undergo PCR testing upon arrival to Anguilla. Travelers must apply for entry permission and will be required to produce a negative COVID-19 test administered three to five days prior to arrival.

Families traveling with children or others who are ineligible for COVID-19 vaccines will not need to quarantine but must provide proof of a negative PCR test administered three to five days prior to arrival.

A wellness-inspired retreat at the glamorous oceanfront Malliouhana resort might be just what you’ve been waiting for. Inspirato offers spacious one- and two-bedroom suites overlooking the sea at this tropical respite.
