    Mexico Travel Tips

    Visitors love Mexico for the culture, beaches, and activities. But your first step is getting there. Here are a few tips to help you prepare for a Mexican getaway.

    Passports: New federal regulations require all U.S. citizens to have passports for air travel to and from Mexico. Cruise passengers and travelers crossing by land will also need passports beginning January 31, 2008. The new regulations have prompted a passport rush. Apply now, and avoid the disappointment and expense of a canceled trip.

    Traveling by Car: Mexico strictly regulates visitors entering the country by car. Before driving across the border, you must have the vehicle's state registration certificate certifying legal ownership or the leasing contract. If the vehicle is leased or rented, it must be in the name of the driver. If the vehicle belongs to a company, proper documentation is necessary to show you work for the company.
    Once across the border, avoid driving at night. Roaming livestock can appear at any time. Travel tip: The country is crisscrossed by toll roads, and it's worth the expense to use them for the convenience and safer driving conditions.

    Finally, U.S. automobile insurance is not valid in Mexico, so you'll have to purchase a separate policy covering the length of your stay. If you're in an accident, you will be taken into police custody until it can be determined who is liable.

    Health: All visitors to Mexico should have routine vaccinations. And you'll want to stock up on basic medicines, such as antidiarrheals, insecticides, and sunscreen.
    Review your health insurance policy before the trip to see if it covers you outside the United States.

    Food and Water: As a rule of thumb, it's best to drink only bottled water, although hotels in resort areas often have water purification systems. Beware of ice cubes that may have been made with tap water.
    Security: Like anywhere else, it makes sense to use hotel safes, avoid wearing obviously expensive jewelry or designer clothing, and carry only the cash or credit cards needed on each outing.

    Water Safety: Remember common sense. You can still get hurt, even on vacation. Use caution when participating in activities such as parasailing, using personal watercraft, snorkeling, and diving.
    Do not use pools or beaches that do not have lifeguards. Some Mexican beaches, including those in Cancun, have warning signs about undertow: Take them seriously.

    I would also say its not the best idea toget in a drug dealers porsche while trashed with him and his bimbo to go ripping around mexico I do have to say though the the guy with the porsche did bring my buddy back to the resort after a 3hr joyride.
    Also be very carefull when using cabs there as well. A cabbie tried to abduct two of my buddys and they had to jump out of the cab at a high rate of speed.

        passport card

        a good option:

        How to apply for or renew your U.S. passport if you live in United States

        please note

        The new wallet-size U.S. Passport Card is a travel document that can be used to enter the United States from Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Bermuda at land border crossings or sea ports-of-entry. Note that it cannot be used for international air travel. The passport card is more convenient and less expensive than a passport book.

          Last time I was down there was around 1995,
          in Cabo San Lucas; a beautiful place.

          But since then a lot has changed in Mexico, I have no desire to go there anymore. The kidnappings alone are reason enough to avoid it. Kidnappings rose 76 percent in the first four months of 2008, and they continue to skyrocket.

          Mexico doesn't deserve my tourism anymore:
          Pedro Galindo says that when his kidnappers chopped off one of his fingers, the pain was excruciating; he felt every second of the process.

          An American security consultant who has helped negotiate the release of scores of kidnap victims in Latin America was himself kidnapped last week in northern Mexico.

            there are still millions of americans that go there to get hammered in Acapulco, Cancun & Puerto Vallarta, the kidnappings dont affect tourism, kidnapping are usually aimed at ppl the cartel knows has money, they wont waste their time kidnapping a middle class hard working person, I travel to Guadalajara very often and havent witnessed any robberies or kidnapping. I did have some trouble at the border coming back, I left my documents back at home. I had me DL but it didnt make the cut, that was one sucky night.

              I hear you but I'm afraid that is changing; look at post no. two on this thread, why do you think that cab driver was trying to abduct his two friends? My brother has a house in Mexico and a Mexican business partner; the kidnapping is getting out of control; of course you can get kidnapped in America too, but in Mexico it's exploding; people are a so scared they are actually putting tracking chips under their skin. Forget about real statistics; most of this never gets reported by their government, because the corruption is so common among the "law enforcement" in Mexico; many of them are in on it, and they want Americans to come down there! In fact, some consider Mexico to be the number one country in the world where tourists are likely to be kidnapped now...

              And they are doing it for a lot less money than they used to, including average joes. That's why the U.S. State Dept. is issuing warnings...

              "Kidnapping, including the kidnapping of non-Mexicans, continues to occur at alarming rates. So-called express kidnappings, i.e., attempts to get quick cash in exchange for the release of an individual, have occurred in almost all of Mexico’s large cities and appear to target not only the wealthy but also the middle class..."

              For anyone thinking about heading into Mexico;
              I would encourage you to read these articles first:
              Amid a surge of American kidnappings at the U.S.-Mexico border, a survivor's story.

              Wealthy Mexicans, terrified of soaring kidnapping rates, are spending thousands of dollars to implant tiny transmitters under their skin so satellites can help find them tied up in a safe house or stuffed in the trunk of a car.

                  That's crazy.... but he was smart to get out.
                  Sounds like he was trying to get them to a gang so they could
                  be held for ransom. It's too bad really, people down there are getting desperate, in the last 5 years a lot of their jobs have been going to China:

                        I've have the honor of training agents from various Border Patrol divisions nationwide. Our training area is Border State Park. Yes the Tijuana US border, yes contaminated waters. These agents are BORSTAR, they are the ones rescuing and saving the lives of illegal aliens who cross illegally into our nation, violating our laws. However, we train, equip and go forth to give aid to these people.

                        I have witnessed this with my own eyes. I have tremendous respect for the men I have worked with. I've done ride alongs on land and have been out on the water after midnight observing the intent of drug runners and worse. It is a real threat, that our public is desensitized towards, because like all things until you are directly impacted, it does not really exist. Go spend the day and night on the border and see for yourself what goes down.

                        The State Department issues Mexican travel alerts for good reasons. Sure, violence is everywhere you have humans, so it's relative, could happen in your neighborhood tonight. However with that being said, this topic is about travel 'to and from' Mexico, nothing else, and mainly for driving. Any person going into high risk areas and not taking precuations or warnings seriously, and expects help to arrive when things go terribly wrong, places their family, loved ones and others at risk. You go, take the risk and the results, it's the simple and its on your own volition. If you have good results, and a better time, then no problem. However if you are one to have bad results, only you and your direct circle will know how terribly wrong things can go down, and fast.

                        I take my safety seriously, whether I travel internationally, or here in the States, doesn't matter, I pay attention and I investigate. I want to come home to my children, safely and not create a nightmare for them. I am one to take huge travel risks, so even more so important for me. It's a choice. I don't care what other people say negatively, I want to hear suggestions that help make a better experience, because I'm focusing on education and knowledge about safety, not opinions.

                        I am preparting for international travel now Mexico and the Southwest Asia) and have done all my homework, printed papers and forwarded to my team. We have required checklists we all must follow, because there are realities in life and I am a realist. It's not just about 'traveling'. There is a responsibility attached to our choices. Being female and traveling into zones that are not in favor of female travelers (solo) is a safety threat I have to pay attention to, but that's my story, won't compare to anyone else's.

                        Go this site as the resource is made available to everyone:


                        These warnings change all the time, so they are not permanent, check weekly. This is what I do.
                        • Make sure you have travel insurance
                        • Bring all your documents (passport/ID/copies) *I always make copies in case of theft. Anyone ever had your PP stolen? Not good.
                        • Make an emergency contact list, and give out copies to trusted sources.
                        • Know a safe area to meet with those you travel with in case of natural or catastrophic disasters. Look at Haiti, same thing, you need to have a 'boots on the ground' emergency plan for survival. Let your people back home know what this plan is. (travel terror is also the lack of communication silence families have to deal with)
                        • Research the political climate in the zones you will be traveling.
                        • Register with the embassy(ies)
                        • Keep your embassy/consulate contact information with you
                        • Before I travel, I talk with my family about my death and how they will need to mitigate the recovery of my remains internationally.
                        • Know the local threats and infectious disease prior to travel.
                        • Check the weather for the duration of your trip.
                        • Investigate the type of medical care that will be available in the nation you travel towards.

                        Just like our society, we suffer the consequences of crime. You hear about it in the US because of our news outlets. The US Border here in the South borders a nation that does not respect our immigration laws, and does not always present the truth out of sympathies for human rights, rather than International law and it creates various tensions on both sides. This is a fact. However, that doesn't mean I or others do not enjoy their trips to Mexico. (I'm not talking about being cloistered in a resort). Here are some of the January crime reports that you probably won't hear in the US. So it does help to know what type of crime exists, in areas you have to travel through.

                            We could probably get a longer print out of the San Diego local crime, just the type of crime will be different as the criminals are different. However, just know what you are dealing with when traveling abroad or across our borders. I've declined travel internationally several times after asking friends in trusted circles who have been in these zones and research, just not worth the potential risk. My last correspondence whereas I am seeking travel advice said:

                            It is not impossible to get into **. Although it is highly discouraged taken into consideration what they would do to you if they ever caught you. ** is nice but it still has it's hostilities as well so you best be careful even there. Yeah I know what your thinking perhaps. But a true professional never gets complacent. Never ever.

                            I don't think you need to be a professional, just concerned for your own safety. So asking questions is a good start. It is a fair beginning.
