Is it nearly time for you to get on an airplane and head to beautiful Mexico? Summer is approaching soon. Even though the COVID pandemic has made a few challenges for people wanting to travel, you can still have a safe and enjoyable vacation to Mexico. Before you decide on your destination, you should check to see if the destination has received the Safe Travels Stamp. This designation is awarded to locations that have COVID safety measures in place so you won’t be worrying and stressing out about possibly getting sick. Until it is time for your Mexico vacation, read below to learn what to pack for your vacation.
Mexico Vacation – What to Pack
The first thing you should do before you head out for your vacation is to check the weather. Most destinations in Mexico are sunny and warm right now, but summer is also the rainy season in Mexico. The climate and forecast are something to consider when you are packing. In general, the most important piece of clothing that you should pack is swimming suits. Most people that vacation in Mexico spend most of their time at the beach or by the pool at their resort. If you pack several swimming suits, then you will always have a fresh and dry suit to wear each day.
Your vacation to Mexico wouldn’t be complete if you didn’t explore some of the small towns and quaint neighborhoods that make the country so charming. Many towns in Mexico have cobblestone streets that can be a bit tricky, so make sure you pack comfortable shoes. Sneakers, flip-flops, or any comfortable shoes should be packed. A Mexico vacation is usually a casual one, so you don’t need to worry about packing high heels.
COVID Test Restrictions
Mexico has been welcoming visitors to their country for some time, and you don’t have to bring a negative COVID test with you. However, Mexico does require that all visitors that arrive at the airport have their temperature taken. Then, you will need to fill out a short health questionnaire. It is very important that you check with your country to know what travel restrictions they are requiring. When leaving Mexico, the United States does require that you provide a negative COVID test that was performed 72 hours before your plane departed. Currently, Canada has stopped flights from Mexico temporarily, but they are expected to resume soon. Canada will likely require a negative PCR test from travelers to return home. If you need any help clarifying current regulations, then you can ask the front desk where you are staying. Some Mexico resorts are providing onsite COVID testing, so their guests won’t have added stress to comply with COVID travel requirements
Don’t Overpack For Your Mexico Vacation
Many people that will be vacationing in Mexico often overpack. Most people on vacation in Mexico will usually spend 80% of their vacation at the beach or at the pool at their resort. Therefore, you really don’t need to pack a lot of clothes. The recommended clothing that you should pack for your Mexico vacation would include several pairs of shorts and tank tops, one pair of pants, one or two pairs of comfy shoes, a jacket, several swimsuits, and sunglasses. If you happen to forget to pack something, don’t worry, because there are numerous shops where you can purchase things at an affordable price.
Make Sure Your Passport Is Up To Date
Lastly, when you are searching for flights for your Mexico vacation, you also need to make sure your passport is up to date. The last thing you want to deal with is an expired passport. Once you arrive in Mexico, you will be given a temporary visitor VISA which is valid for six months. Make sure to hold on to the temporary VISA paperwork. When you return to the airport to head home, you will need to return the VISA form to the airport staff at check-in.
