Tips on Having a Trouble-Free Trip to Mexico
Mexico has become one of the most popular tourist destinations.
And just like traveling to other countries and cities, one needs
enough information to be able to maximize the experience of
staying in Mexico.
Here are some tips to help one prepare for an exciting trip to
one of the culturally-rich countries, Mexico.
1. Learn the language.
Spanish is the main language spoken in Mexico. Although some
residents can communicate in and understand English, Spanish is
still the language spoken in commerce. Spanish is easy to learn
and once one has been familiarized with sentence construction,
he or she can go far just using an English/Spanish dictionary.
2. Make sure you have an ID with a photo (such as a passport or
a driver's license), your tourist card (which is proof of your
permission to visit Mexico) and your proof of citizenship.
These are the documents that need to be presented before
3. Take note of the following items as these are allowed to be
brought to Mexico:
Personal clothing, footwear and toiletries in practical
quantities Magazines and books Personal medicines and
prescriptions Used sporting equipment One portable TV and VCR
and one typewriter Cassette and records, not exceeding 20
Musical instrument A set of skiing equipment, fishing equipment
and tennis rackets Alcohol-containing beverage, not exceeding
three liters, and 50 cigars or 400 cigarettes, if tourist is
eighteen years old One still camera and movie camera, with
not more than twelve rolls of film
4. Before entering Mexico, there are two forms to be filled out.
It is better to prepare a black pen for these. These are usually
distributed at the airline ticket counter or while on the plane.
The first one is the temporary visa. The second form is for the
Customs and Taxation called Hacienda.
5. Although there are businesses that accept foreign currency,
make sure that you still have some of your dollars exchanged for
the Mexican peso. Credit cards, particularly, those with
MasterCard, Visa and AmEx logo are also accepted. Bringing
traveler's checks are also preferred.
6. Drink bottled water or sufficiently boiled water. Never drink
tap water even if the place in which you are staying claim to
have a water purifying system. Before eating fruits and
vegetable, wash these in a purifying solution, peel them and
7. In a location different from that of the originals, store
photocopies of tickets and a list of traveler's checks.
With this information, your trip to Mexico will be a safe and
