Visas and Immigration
A valid passport is required to enter Mexico. If you are a US or
Canadian citizen an original birth certificate is also acceptable with
another photo ID. If you are traveling with. children and you are
divorced be sure to verify the requirements with the airline prior to
arriving to the airport. Normally if both parents are not present a
letter from the other parent must accompany them to Mexico. When
arriving to Mexico you first will pass through immigration. You will be
given a Tourist card to be filled out by the airline. Each family member
must have an individual Tourist. Card. An immigration agent will then
stamp your Tourist Card and keep one copy. A copy then will be returned
to you which must be presented upon your departure from Mexico. It is
extremely important that you do not lose your Tourist Card. Do not carry
with you the document. Keep your tourist card in a safe deposit box in
your hotel room.
In order to maintain the improvements to the Mexican Airports the
visitors tax has been reinstated. The tax is approximately $ 15.00 usd
or $ 20.00 cd. This fee must be paid upon your departure. If you have
purchased a package from a tour operator be sure to ask if the departure
tax or visitors tax is included.
The currency in Mexico is the Peso. The currency bills are $20.00, $
50.00, $ 100.00, $ 200.00 and $ 500.00 pesos and coins are $ 1.00 , $
2.00, $ 5.00 and $ 10.00 pesos.
You may exchange US dollars or Canadian dollars in your hotel reception.
However we suggest that you exchange your money in a bank or an exchange
house (Casa de Cambio) for the best exchange rate. US dollars are widely
accepted in Mexico but usually pesos is the best.
Often during our vacations our drinking and eating habits are different
from what we are used to back home. Besides this the factors of change
of weather and altitude affects our bodies greatly. Therefore during the
first day of your vacation try to take is easy so your body can adjust
to itīs temporary environment. Drink lots of fluids during your
vacations and bring with you the normal home medicines to help any
slight discomfort which may occur. Such as headaches or stomach
problems. If you are traveling to a beach area be careful with the sun
it usually is stronger than it seems. Use sunscreen and take some shade
now and then.
Taxis are very affordable in Mexico. We suggest that you ask the driver
before getting in the taxi the fare they will charge. Usually in your
hotel they have a list of the fares so you can be sure that you are
getting the correct price. Rental Cars are available all over Mexico.
and as in the United States you must be 25 years old and have a major
credit card. It is best to reserve your rental car before you leave
home. Buses in most tourist areas of Mexico are economical and very easy
to use. Check with the concierge in your hotel the fares and routes of
the local bus system.
Before you leave home you should make copies of your passport, tickets,
credit cards and travelers checks. Once you arrive to your destination
in Mexico it is recommended to store these items in a safe deposit box
in your hotel and only carry with you the absolute necessary. Only bring
with you the credit cards that you actually will use. In Mexico
generally only Visa, Mastercard and American Express are accepted.
Discovery, Diners etc... are not accepted. The safest is to use
travelers checks and may be purchased before you leave home and are
easily replaced in case of loss.
The beaches in Mexico are open to the public and free of charge. It is
important to be extremely careful swimming as very few beaches have
lifeguards. Do not swim alone and keep you eye on the waves as they can
be unpredictable. In all beach destinations the water condition flags
are posted and should be followed. Do not panic if you feel you are
being pulled out to sea. Swim parallel to the beach and usually in 50
ft. conditions will change.
Mexico offers many different climates in several regions. Generally from
June to October are the hottest months with the most rain. Then from
November to May it is drier and cooler. However in some areas cooler is
not really cool. Check the specific region you will be visiting under
