Visit the traveler's paradise

Mexico is a traveler's paradise, composed of diverse characteristics: desert landscapes, snow-capped volcanoes, ancient ruins, teeming industrialized cities, time-warped colonial towns, glitzy resorts, deserted beaches and an astonishing collection of flora and fauna. Our most popular Mexico tours include destinations not to miss: Mexico City, Merida and the amazing ruins of Chichen-Itza, the colonial city of Oaxaca, San Cristobal de las Casas and Palenque in Chiapas, and the Copper Canyon with the amazing train ride from Chihuahua to Los Mochis. Choose from several beach extensions or resorts in the Mayan Riviera and the Yucatan Peninsula, Los Cabos, the Costalegre, and Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo.


Be in the know before you go


A valid passport is required to travel and should have at least 6 months’ validity after your return home. You should have at least 2 blank pages per country that you are visiting. If your passport does not meet this requirement at the time of departure, you can be denied boarding for your international flight and may consequently incur additional expenses.

U.S. citizens do not require a visa or a tourist card for tourist stays of 72 hours or less within the 20-30 kilometer “border zone.” Tourist Permit FMT Fee: Mexico charges a fee to all tourists and business visitors arriving in the country. The fee is approximately 22 USD and the money collected is handed to the Tourism Ministry to promote Mexican tourism. U.S. citizens traveling as tourists beyond the “border zone,” or entering Mexico by air, must pay a fee to obtain a tourist card, known as an FMM, available from Mexican consulates, Mexican border crossing points, Mexican tourism offices, airports within the border zone, and most airlines serving Mexico. If you do not arrive in Mexico by airplane, then you will need to pay Mexico’s tourist permit fee and complete the FMT Tourist Visa at the border checkpoint if you plan to travel beyond the 35km ‘free zone’ after crossing the border into Mexico. Failure to obtain the necessary permit will result in a 40 USD penalty fee upon returning to the US.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has issued a travel alert for countries and territories where Zika virus has been found. If you are pregnant or plan to be pregnant, please consult your doctor before traveling to Mexico. For up to date information on recommended and required vaccinations and general health travel tips for Mexico please visit the CDC Website , then use the drop down menu to select the countries you are visiting. Please consult with your physician for clarification or concerns regarding recommended or required vaccinations.

High Altitude Areas: In high-altitude areas like Mexico City (elevation 7,600 feet, approximately 1.5 miles above sea level); most people need a short adjustment period as long as several days. Symptoms of reaction to high altitude include a lack of energy, shortness of breath, occasional dizziness, headache, and insomnia. Those with heart problems should consult their doctor before traveling. Air pollution in Mexico City and Guadalajara is severe, especially from December to May, and combined with high altitude could affect travelers with underlying respiratory problems.
