5 Things You Need for Your Mexican Road Trip 

Are you planning to hit the road and head south? A Mexican road trip is an incredible opportunity to see the natural beauty the country has to offer. Plus, it can be far more affordable, practical, and enjoyable than flying. However, when it comes to any road trip, preparation is key. Here are the top five things you need for your Mexican road trip.

  1. Driver’s License

One of the most important tools you’ll need in your Mexican road trip toolkit is your driver’s license. You won’t need a special license or permit; American and Canadian driver’s licenses are recognized in Mexico. Be sure to carry it on your person at all times, especially when you’re in transit.

  1. Mexican Visa

If you’re just planning to visit Mexico for a couple weeks as a holiday and you’re from any of the countries listed here, you won’t need a visitor visa. However, if you’re not a permanent resident of any of these nations or you’re hoping to take on any paid work while you’re there or you’re planning to stay for longer than 180 days, you’ll need to make sure you have a valid Mexican visa before you enter the country. Be sure to double check your visa requirements before you load up the car and hit the road.

  1. Mexican Insurance for Your Vehicle

Your American or Canadian car insurance is not valid in Mexico. In order to bring your vehicle into Mexico, you need to have Mexican insurance to cover it for the duration of your stay. That way, in the event of an accident or a breakdown, you know you’re covered. With that in mind, do your research into some Mexican insurance options and select the one best suited to your travel plans and your budget.

  1. An Amazing Itinerary

Mexico features so much natural beauty, and a road trip is the perfect opportunity to soak it all up. Before you leave, make sure to organize a comprehensive travel itinerary that will allow you to see the iconic landmarks you won’t want to miss. From hidden cenotes to man-made wonders like Chichen Itza, you’ll make unforgettable memories with the help of an amazing itinerary.

  1. Booked Accommodation

You’ll want to ensure that you’ve planned and booked your accommodation for when you finish your road trip and end up in Mexico. Maybe it will be at one of the many incredible all-inclusive resorts Mexico has to offer, or perhaps it will be at one of the top-end luxury hotels like the Hotel Mousai.

Whatever your preference, secure your room before you take off on your journey and keep copies of your booking confirmation in a secure folder on your phone and/or a printed version on your person. Knowing that your housing situation is already sorted on the other end of your journey will give you the peace of mind you deserve on your travels.

When it comes to taking a road trip, you can never be too prepared. By ensuring you have all these components before you head down south, you’ll guarantee that your Mexican road trip is as smooth and fun as possible. With this organization out of the way, all you’ll need to focus on is making sensational memories.
