Do I need to tip? 

Yes you do. 15% is the standard and 20% is common for good service. 

Please expect to tip in cash (USD or pesos). 

Do I need to carry cash? 

Yes you do. Credit cards are not always accepted and even if there is a facility, many businesses ask to pay in cash. 

What should I do if I get sick? 


What happens if I need serious medical assistance? 

Mexican ambulances will require you to be able to provide ID and usually proof of ability to pay some costs.  We suggest carrying a credit card with your ID on you at all times.  This is just broad anecdotal advice, but please be sensible when travelling. 

Should I get travel insurance? 

Yes. Quite simply, should anything happen to any traveler in any country, it’s always sensible to have the protection of health insurance
