The Ultimate Travel Tips for visiting Mexico

Before planning a trip to Mexico there are a few things you might want to know. We want your trip to run as smoothly as possible so here are some of our top travel tips for your next holiday.

Stick to bottled water

Mexico is hot, especially in the summer, so you’ll need to drink plenty of water during your trip. However, drinking tap water in Mexico is dangerous and never a smart idea.

Pay in the correct currency

The Mexican Peso is the country’s official currency (MXN), but the US Dollar is widely recognised across the country, particularly in touristy areas. Most tour companies, restaurants, and even some businesses will have their prices listed in both pesos and USD. We recommend bringing a combination of both currencies as you will use cash to pay for most expenses such as excursions, admission fees, lodging, and travel.

M stands for Women

“Mujeres” is the Spanish word for women. So, don’t assume that a door marked with an “M” leads to the men’s room! Look for a door with the letter “H” (for “hombre”) or a “C” (for “caballeros”) on it instead.

Try the local Cuisine

Mexico is home to some of the world’s most well-known and popular foods. Due to local temperature, topography, and cultural diversity among the indigenous population, Mexican food differs by area. Make sure you take time to try the local cuisine and savour every mouthful.

Do I need Travel Insurance for Mexico?

There is no legal requirement for Travel Insurance when visiting Mexico, but you should still view it as an essential part of your trip. The unexpected can happen to anyone at any time, and although you might not think it could happen to you, having a Travel Insurance policy in place will protect you if needed.

    What are the Mexico entry requirements?

    Depending on where you are travelling from, the entry requirements will vary. If you are a tourist travelling from the UK and your passport is valid for travel, then a visa is not required to enter Mexico. However, an immigration form will need to be filled out, both before entering and leaving the country.
