Forgotten tales. Turquoise waters. Urban Mexico. Yep, we’re defo talking about the resort notorious for Spring Break. Soak up the sun on the golden sands of Cancú n beaches. Haggle for handmade souvenirs at local flea markets. Feel the vibrant pulse of life after dark. And hunt for shipwrecks and cenotes (that’s sinkholes to us) on oceanic Cancún tours – watch out for Jack Sparrow and his cronies hard on your flippers!

Vivid street art. Enchanting bioluminescence. Vast stretches of sand. This place breathes la dolce far niente, so let your inner sloth thrive. Bliss. Need things to do in Isla Holbox? We’ve got just the inspo. Sip cocktails or cold ones at the tranquil beach bars. Spot the majestic Isla Holbox whale sharks between May and September. Or snooze the arvo away in one of the famous hammocks. A pristine place to chill the F out.

Squeaky white sand. Shimmering lagoons. Tropical forests. Ancient wonders. Playa del Carmen is Caribbean coastal bliss. Sip from coconuts under the shade of towering palm trees. Explore the buzzing strip of 5th Avenue (aka La Quinta Avenida). Or delve into the natural world of Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve. David Attenborough fans eat your heart out.

Your Mexico Qs answered

What’s the local currency in Mexico?

Mexican peso (MXN).

How much does a Mexico trip cost?

It depends! You’ll need to budget for spending money, meals (only the ones which aren’t included, obvs) and those immense optional activities. Go through your itinerary and think about the optionals you’re keen to experience – it’s all part of the fun!

What’s the climate like in Mexico?

Tropical with a rainy season (May to October) and dry season (October to May). Hurricane season occurs along the Caribbean coast of the Yucatan Peninsula (June to November).

What’s the food like in Mexico?

All your favourite Mexican dishes but the real deal! Enchiladas. Chilaquiles. Tostadas (basically stale tortillas with extra crunch!). Mole (pronounced ‘mol-eh’). Guacamole (which tastes even better than the stuff back home). Need we go on?

What public holidays are celebrated in Mexico?

Día de los Reyes (Three King’s Day) is 6 January and celebrates the arrival of the Three Wise Men who each brought a gift to Christ on the day He was born. Crown-shaped Rosca de Reyes (King’s Cake) is eaten, and presents are given to children. Cinco de Mayo (Fifth of May) is a day of margaritas and tacos as the Mexican army’s triumph over France is celebrated with military parades and battle re-enactments. Get ready to wear your most flamboyant colours and paint your face as a sugar skull for Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) and Día de los Santos (All Saint’s Day). Uplifting parties across the country and a HUGE parade in Mexico City celebrate lost loved ones on 1 and 2 November.

Bonus questions...

When’s the best time to travel to Mexico?

Mexico is a hot spot pretty much all year round (literally!) - high season occurs December to April: visit Mexico landmarks and experience other gnarly outdoor activities. Low season is May to June and September to November – awesome for budget travellers and heading inland.

Will I need a visa and/or travel insurance to travel to Mexico?

You must have comprehensive travel insurance to participate in a Topdeck trip to Mexico. You will be unable to join us without it.

It’s your responsibility to obtain the correct visas for your trip. Ask your travel agent or check with the relevant embassies before you depart.

What are the health and vaccine requirements for travel to Mexico?

We recommend you consult your doctor about health and vaccination requirements before you travel to Mexico. For current travel safety advice, please check your home country’s travel advisories. 

Can I use my mobile phone whilst travelling in Mexico?

Mobile phone reception in Mexico varies. Signal is likely to be better in cities and towns than in rural areas. Remember to check your network provider’s roaming fees to avoid any nasty surprises on your next bill!

What do I need to charge my devices in Mexico?

Mexico uses Type A and Type B plugs (127 volts).

We recommend you bring a universal plug adapter – airports usually sell them, but it’s cheaper to buy one before you go.

Top tips for travelling Mexico

One for the fellas, the loos marked with “M” aren’t for blokes – they're for Sheilas. Mujeres means women in the Spanish-speaking world. Instead, look for “H” (hombres – men) or “C” (caballeros – gentlemen). Keeping on theme - don’t flush toilet tissue down the loo... it causes drain problems, and nobody wants clogged up toilets in that heat.

What are some useful phrases I can use in Mexico?

Good morning/G’day = Buenos días (bweh-nohs dee-ahs)

Hello/Hi = Hola (oh-lah)

Goodbye = Adiós (ah-dee-ohs)

Thank you = Gracias (gras-ias) (Pronounced grath-ias in Spain)

Where is...? = ¿Dónde es/está...? (dohn-deh ehs/ehs-tah)

Two tequila shots, please = Dos chupitos de tequila, por favor (dohs choo-pee-tohs deh the-kee-lah, pohr fah-bohr)

How much? = ¿Cuánto cuesta? (kwahn-to kwehs-sta)
