VACATION CHECKLIST
 
Important things you must know to travel to Cancun
 
We strongly suggest you to take your time to read all this useful information before you come to Cancun or to any other region of Mexico.
 
The Government of Mexico requires that all travellers present a valid passport for entry into Mexico. Driver's permits, voter registration cards, affidavits and similar documents are not accepted, please see the information below:
 
Important notice for US Citizens. The Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative require all travelers to and from the Americas, the Caribbean, and Bermuda to have a passport or other accepted form of documentation to enter or reenter the United States.
 
ALL persons, including U.S. citizens, traveling between the U.S. and Canada, Mexico, Central and South America, the Caribbean, and Bermuda by land or sea (including ferries), may be required to present a valid passport or other documents as determined by the Department of Homeland Security.
 
After proof of citizenship has been verified, you will receive a free Mexican Tourist Card, which you must keep with you at all times when in Mexico. This tourist card must be given back to the airline upon departure check-in. If you lose your Mexican Tourist Card you can obtain a permission to leave the country from the local Immigration Office.
 
Make your travel arrangements as soon as possible.  Book in advance, this enables you to get the best prices for airline tickets, airport transportation, car rental and hotel reservations. 
 
When you leave Mexico there is a "Departure Tax " of about $18.00 US per person but this tax is usually included in your airline ticket and you don't need to pay for it again. If your are not sure you must contact your airline before you fly into Cancun and ask them if the Mexican Departure Tax is already included in your ticket.
 
Do not bring into Mexico any type of fresh fruits, vegetables, meat, poultry, ham or prepared dishes, guns and drugs. After you pass the custom you'll be stopped at a last checkpoint to verify your custom declaration and baggage revision. If you are transporting illegal items they will be confiscated by the government, eventually you could be taken to the jail if you are transporting guns or drugs. If you need to take special medication based on forbidden drugs we strongly suggest you to bring the original prescription issued by your physician and it must contain his license ID and phone numbers in order the information can be verified.
 
Do I need any special vaccination to enter Mexico? For visitors coming directly from the United States or Canada, no immunization certification is required to enter Mexico. If you are traveling from a country known to be infected with yellow fever, a vaccination certificate is required, when request a visa in the Mexican consulate ask the official if you need such certificate.
 
Things to Do in advance:
Arrange for pet care or boarding.
If boarding, make sure that your pets have any necessary shots / vaccinations.
Arrange to have the lawn cut.
Ask a neighbor or friend to keep an eye on things and to pick up any dropped off advertisements or leaflets left at your door or on your driveway.
Be sure that you will have enough prescription medicine. Order if required.
Planning to rent a car? Check your auto insurance to see if you're fully covered where you're going. You may not need that supplemental insurance offered by the car rental company.
