Mexico Travel Insurance should be considered for all travelers to Mexico, even if they are visiting only for a short period.
Mexico is a popular tourist destination for many countries, but it is quite popular with U.S. citizens due to its proximity.
The currency in Mexico is the peso. However, U.S. dollars are accepted in most of the favorite tourist places. In fact, using U.S. dollars may get you a better price compared to Mexican pesos. In any case, carrying some local currency is advisable.
Cancun is a trendy tourist destination located in the Yucatan Peninsula. So many U.S. tourists visit Cancun all the time that, for the most part, it just looks and feels like the United States. Most of the flights in and out of Cancun are from the United States. However, don't be fooled. In case you were to get sick or injured there, Mexican hospitals might hold you hostage, take away your passport and not release you until you make the payment for the treatment. Therefore, you should always carry appropriate travel insurance while visiting Mexico.
Chichen Itza is considered a wonder of the world and is around three hours' drive from Cancun. Experiencing the Mayan culture is fascinating. That area never had any farming done ever, even today, which is just unbelievable.
When visiting Mexico, you should not drink tap water or consume ice cubes. Also, you should not eat anything cold and raw, such as salad, sandwiches or even cut fruit (unless you cut them yourself).
There are many all-inclusive resorts in Mexico where you can drink and eat an unlimited amount of food. Depending upon the resort, it may be family friendly or adults only or couples only. Make sure to choose the right type for your preferences.
Also within a few hours' driving distance are the Tulum ruins, Xcaret Park and Xel-Ha Park.
In the Yucatan Peninsula, there are around 300 cenotes (holes) that were naturally made by asteroids hitting the ground. Usually, an underground river flows underneath. Many people like to swim in these holes or dive into them. However, make sure to purchase a proper travel medical insurance that will cover you in case you get injured doing so.
Cozumel is an island off the Yucatan peninsula where a lot of cruises stop by.
Cabo San Lucas is located on the southern tip of Baja, California. It has many resorts and caters primarily to foreign tourists.
