Celebrity Travel: Go away with Cristina Rodlo

“I’ve been very fortunate to have worked both in Mexico and the United States,” said Los Angeles-based actress Cristina Rodlo. “Honestly, the biggest difference is the budget. Other than that, it’s pretty much the same.” Rodlo is the star of Netflix’s horror film, “No One Gets Out Alive,” where she plays an immigrant whose hopes for realizing the American Dream are sabotaged by the strange occurrences in her apartment. Fans may stay in touch with Rodlo on Twitter (

Q: How have you been handling this pandemic?

A: For me, the pandemic was the stop and reset that I needed. I had been working nonstop for the last six years (for which) I’m very grateful. I was actually shooting “No One Gets Out Alive” in Cleveland when everything happened. We were on our first day of shooting and at the end of the day, the producers came over and told us that we had to stop and fly back home. But then six months later, we resumed production in Romania. I was part of the few productions that kept shooting during the pandemic.

Q: What did you do before shooting resumed?

A: I packed my things and went to Mexico to spend most of the last year, which was the height of the pandemic. And I cooked a lot, read, and wrote. It was a moment for me to reconnect with myself and with what I want. As actors, we’re always wondering what’s next. Even when we’re working, we’re bugging our reps to see what’s next. The first thing every person in the industry asks to another person in the industry is, “What are you working on?” It was a time to change my mindset. There’s much more to life than just what’s next. We have to really enjoy the moment because we don’t know when the circumstances are going to change completely. So, that’s what I did.

Q: If you had to cancel travel plans due to the pandemic, where were they to?


A: I was planning to fly to Greece after we wrapped filming, but then production got pushed to September and all the circumstances changed by then. We were no longer allowed to just travel from one country to another in Europe. There were a lot of restrictions. So, in the end, I couldn’t do that trip.

Q: What is your favorite vacation destination?

A: Near Puerto Escondido in Oaxaca. I’m a beach person. When I discovered Punta Pájaros in Oaxaca, that became my spot. I can only say that if you go there, be ready to do nothing. Just enjoy the view, your pool, and the beach. Be ready to eat like a king or queen for a very affordable price.

Q: What was the first trip you took as a child?
