TRAVEL TO MEXICO

Mexico is a proper must-see travel destination combining history and a rich modern culture, with the food and partying up there with anywhere in the world. Still, there’s more to a trip to Mexico than tequila and Mariachi bands. The Aztec and Mayan ruins that dot the landscape are still truly awe-inspiring sights. Check out our travel guide for advice on how to tour Mexico like a boss.

WHAT TO PACK

what-to-pack

Natural fibre clothing - Synthetics are torture in the heat.

Diarrhoea tablets and rehydration salts - Pack these as a precaution. Mexican tap water can be iffy. Make sure you only drink bottled water and ask whether salads or ice cubes have been prepared using tap water – avoid if the answer is yes.

Camera - Photo opportunities and incredible sites are ten a penny.

Pre-paid currency card - Err on the side of caution. While Mexico is a safe place to visit, minimise the risk of having your cash stolen by not carrying large amounts.

Beachwear - With all of its coastal attractions, you may forget you ever wore jeans.
