Travel tips for Mexico

Close to 2 million Canadians travel to Mexico each year. Most choose to travel within the Yucatan Peninsula, which is the safest area of the country and has popular tourist destinations such as Cancun, Cozumel and Riviera Maya. The best time to travel to Mexico is between October and May, with the average temperature being 25°C. Hurricane season is June to November.

Canadians must have a valid passport to enter the country. Tourist cards (provided by the airline) are required for tourists, and all other travellers must have a valid business, work or student visa. The US dollar is widely accepted and preferred by local businesses. Major credit cards are also accepted.

It is recommended that you exercise a high degree of caution when travelling within Mexico, especially when venturing outside major tourist areas. Theft and crime are common, and penalties for breaking the law are much more severe than in Canada. The drinking age is 18, and offenses associated with illegal drugs are severe.

Now that you have these travel tips, it’s time to get your travel insurance for your Mexico trip organized.
