Your Complete Mexico Packing List for 2024- Written by a Local

Wondering what to include in your Mexico packing list? I’ve got you covered because not only have I lived in Mexico for the last two years, but I have also traveled through the country extensively during that time, visiting various different states and climate zones. 

In this post, we will look at what clothes you should pack for Mexico depending on where in the country you are going to be traveling to, as well as what toiletries, electronics, and essentials you need.

Your Complete Mexico Packing List for 2024

Before preparing your Mexico packing list, it is important to note that the climate and temperatures vary significantly from one part of Mexico to another. Coastal destinations like Cancun and the Riviera Maya, the Yucatan state beaches, Puerto Vallarta and Baja California Sur see hot, tropical weather all year round.

However, don’t assume that everywhere in Mexico is always hot and sunny. Cities like Mexico City, Guanajuato, Santiago de Queretaro, San Cristobal de Las Casas and Guadalajara sit at much higher altitudes and are much cooler on the whole, but they can even get quite chilly during the winter. 

Mexicans also tend to dress quite conservatively in the cities. So while in beach towns in the Yucatan peninsula, you will see plenty of expats and locals wearing shorts and summer dresses, in the cities people tend to stick to jeans and t-shirts – even when its hot enough to warrant the former.

Mexico Travel Essentials

We will start by looking at the Mexico travel essentials that you should be sure to pack regardless of where you are going, then we will look at the different clothes depending on what type of Mexico vacation you are planning.

Passport and travel documents 

Your passport is the most important thing that you need for your trip to Mexico. At the very least, you should make sure that you have at least 6 months of validity left on your passport from your date of travel. 

Residents of most countries (including the UK, USA, Canada, etc) do not need to obtain a visa before traveling to Mexico but if you are unsure, you should check your country´s government travel advice website. 

Most Mexican airports, including Cancun international (CUN) and Puerto Vallarta Gustavo Diaz Airport (PVR) give travelers a 180 day tourist visa stamp immediately on arrival.

Driver’s license

If you plan on renting a car in Mexico, you need to be able to present a full driver’s license. If your license is in the Latin alphabet (i.e. this one), your license is all you need. 

However, if it is displayed in a different alphabet (i.e. Japanese, Korean, etc), you will also need to have an International Driving Permit (IDP). You must apply for your IDP in the same country where your driving license was issued and the process for obtaining one differs from country to country so it is a good idea to get this organized a few months before your trip. 

Travel insurance 

You should never travel anywhere without first ensuring that you have sufficient insurance coverage and that includes Mexico. Unfortunately, today’s health is not promised tomorrow. 

A good travel insurance plan will include around $250,000 USD worth of medical coverage, and also cover you for “additional extras” such as outdoor activities, loss/theft of valuables, repatriation, cancellations, etc. 

Always read the small print, as not all policies include the additional extras and may require you to pay a little more for them as an extra add on. Once your plan is set, print out the first page of the policy or at least, write down your reference number. 

If you need medical assistance in Mexico, this will be the first thing you are asked for.

Mexican pesos are the legal tender in Mexico


It comes in handy to make sure you have at least a small amount of Mexican pesos on hand before heading to Mexico. Once you arrive, you can also withdraw more cash from the ATMs, and the rates are usually pretty competitive. 

You don’t want to have wads of cash on you in Mexico, so around 4,000-5,000 pesos is plenty to tide you over the first couple of days. Do be careful about which ATMs you use as the admin fees for withdrawals can range significantly from around 35 pesos to as much as 180 pesos. 

Do make sure that you are obtaining Mexican pesos and not just traveling with US dollars as pesos are the legal tender here. While dollars may be accepted in some touristy areas like Cancun and the Riviera Maya, Tulum, Mahahual, etc, they are not accepted everywhere. 

You should also note that sometimes, when people quote you a price in US dollars, they might try and trick you on the conversion to make a little more, so always use pesos. 

Debit and credit cards 

Take your debit and credit card with you to Mexico so that you can pay for purchases locally and withdraw more money as you need. Try to obtain an international bank card before your trip to cut down on international withdrawal and transaction fees.

If you are in the US, you can use Charles Schwab and if you are in the UK or Europe, try Wise or Revolut. Credit cards offer more security than debit cards and can be useful to have for paying for large purchases, hotel stays, etc. 

It is a good idea to travel with more than one card and keep one hidden away deep in the bottom of your luggage for emergencies. I once had my debit card plucked out of my backpack and it is lucky that I had another bank card otherwise I would have been in a mess. 


The great backpack vs four-wheeled suitcase debate affects everyone planning a trip from time to time. Before heading to Mexico, it is important to think carefully about what kind of trip you will be doing and what kind of bag will be the most suitable for you. 

Large, multi-liter backpacks can seem great for trips where you are constantly moving from one place to another and taking different buses and trains. However, they can also be hard on your back and cause pain and problems if you are packing a lot into it. 

Four-wheeled suitcases go easier on your back, but the pavement is often uneven in many parts of Mexico which can make pulling it along a bit of an irritation. Try to pack light where possible and opt for a smaller four-wheel case like this one. 

Luggage tags 

For the unlikely event that your luggage might get lost en route to Mexico, make sure you have a luggage tag fastened to it with your name, address, and contact details clearly written inside. You should also buy some sort of ribbon or accessory to help you distinguish your bag from the others. 

(Isn’t it tricky sometimes to pick out your black hard-shell bag when you are waiting at a luggage carousel filled with dozens of black hard-shell bags that all look virtually the same?)

You might even want to buy an air tag and put it inside your bag so if it does get lost, you can track and see where it is. 


Listening to music, podcasts and audiobooks can really help pass the time on long bus/train/plane journeys. Be sure to pack a pair of headphones in your hand luggage! 

Phone charger 

Your phone charger is no doubt one of your key Mexico travel essentials as this can be your lifeline for managing all of your apps/banking, researching and planning your trip and staying connected. If you can, travel with a phone charger that allows you to detach the USB cable so that you can then easily charge your phone in cars/on buses. 

(Most Mexican buses have USB sockets under the seat in front of you which is super convenient!)

Medicines and prescriptions

Pack any medicines that you are likely to need during your trip into a small medical bag and if anything is given to you on a prescription, travel with the original prescription papers too, just for the off chance that immigration asks you about the meds you are carrying.


If you plan on reading books by the pool or on the plane ride to Mexico, a Kindle is a great investment. (Yes I love the weight/girth/smell of physical books too but English books are expensive and tricky to find in Mexico, plus you can’t exactly travel easily with a suitcase filled with books!) 

I recently bought a Kindle Paperwhite and I was so impressed with how the digital screen is designed to look like the off-white color of a book page. (Sometimes its the simple things!) 

Invest in a cover too so that your Kindle doesn’t get scratched or accidentally pressed when it’s in your bag.

A Mexican SIM card 

If you have a US or Canadian cell phone plan, Mexico may be covered under your policy. If not, or you are from outside of North America, a Mexican SIM card can help you stay connected. 

Telcel, Movistar, and AT&T are the main cell phone providers in Mexico and you can pick up a sim card and a decent monthly data, calls, and SMS plan for less than $15 with them all. These sim cards are sold at international airport terminals, Oxxo convenience stores and the official phone stores themselves.

However, if you dont want the hassle of physically taking your sim card out of your phone and then stressing about losing it, you can also buy an e-sim before you go. I used these all over Europe last summer and was impressed with their value and data packages.

Holafly offer a series of packages where you can buy a 5 day unlimited data sim for $19 USD, a 7 day unlimited sim for $27 and a 30 day unlimited sim for $60.

Waterproof phone pouch/bag

A waterproof phone pouch can come in super handy if you are going to be spending a lot of time at beaches and pools. Even if you are not going to be going directly in the water with your phone, it keeps it safe from any splashes by the pool if an errant kid divebombs into the water right beside you or something.

We also use them a lot to keep our phones safe during the hurricane season when a sudden monsoon-like storm could hit at any moment.

Suitcase lock

Ideally, your suitcase will have a number lock on it with a combination that only you know. However, if it doesnt, it pays to invest in a cheap lock to help secure your luggage when you check it in for a flight. 

You can also then make use of the lock when you leave your luggage in your hotel room or hostel, even if just for your own peace of mind.

Comfortable shoes 

Whether you are heading to Mexico for a city break or to go venturing around all of the Mayan ruins in the Yucatan like a modern-day Indiana Jones, you are going to need to wear some comfortable shoes. They might not be the most beautiful shoes in the world, but walking sandals or Birkenstocks are super comfortable for spending an extended period on your feet.

Since they are sandals and they are open, they let your feet breathe so you don’t feel too hot or sweaty in humid, tropical areas. If it’s a little cooler, you also can never really go wrong with a pair of your favorite sneakers.

Flipflops or Crocs for your accommodation 

It is always a good idea to have a pair of flipflops, Crocs, or other type of slippers that you like to use at your accommodation. Sometimes, Airbnb floors are a bit dirty, and walking around barefoot means getting gross, black dusty feet! 

In some parts of Mexico like the Yucatan and Puerto Vallarta, walking around barefoot isnt really recommended because of the presence of scorpions. (Yikes!)

Neck pillow 

Your comfort is paramount when taking long journeys from A to B, and a neck pillow can make it easier to get comfy and sleep on long bus/plane rides without inadvertently straining or pulling something. 

Somebody gifted me this Trtl neck pillow which has a velcro strap to fasten it around the front and supports your entire head. However, you might still prefer a more traditional style neck  this one.


Many bathrooms in Mexico do not have toilet paper and their cleanliness standards might not be up to par with yours. (Even in bathrooms in restaurants and bars, it is pretty common to find that there is no toilet paper). 

Always carry a packet of tissues with you or pick up a roll of toilet paper when you arrive if you are going to be backpacking around and likely encountering a lot of questionable-looking bathrooms.


It is worth investing in a pair of earplugs so that you know that you can have a good night if sleep if things get a little noisy. This is particularly useful if you are going to be staying in a hostel and potentially sharing a room with some snorers, or if you are traveling during a festival or event. 

There is no rule in Mexico that music has to be turned down after 10pm, 11pm etc so if someone close to your accommodation is blasting out music or being otherwise loud, you can’t force them to be quiet.


Sunglasses are essential for travel to most parts of Mexico. Make sure that you purchase glasses that have UV-blocking lenses so that they actually protect you from the suns harmful rays, not just glasses that look good.

Theft-proof backpack

You might opt to take a couple of backpacks with you on your trip to Mexico – maybe a 5L daypack to use while you are out exploring and a slightly larger backpack to use as your hand luggage.

It is a good idea to ensure that one of these is a theft-proof backpack like those offered by Pacsafe. While theft-proof bags are a little more expensive than your average backpack, they come with additional safety features that are definitely appreciated in Mexico. For instance:

  • TSA-approved mesh locking system

  • Slash-proof and water-proof material

  • Long term warranty

Reusable water bottle

You cannot drink the water in Mexico because even though it is purified at the source, it often gets contaminated en route to your tap and is full of bacteria, germs and parasites.

(Even locals don’t drink it). Most hotels and Airbnbs will provide you with complimentary bottles of water when you first arrive, but then you will need to buy more bottled water from Oxxo convenience stores or large supermarkets.

It is a good idea to buy a reusable water bottle such as a Life Straw so that you can purchase large, multi-liter bottles of water to keep in your accommodation, and then fill your water bottle up each day before you head out. The Life Straw is great because it also keeps your water cold for hours, even in hot, humid climates

Travel adaptors 

If you are traveling to Mexico from the US or Canada, you might not need a travel adaptor since the same three-pronged plug sockets are found here. If you are European like me, you will need to purchase some plug type B adaptors.

Rarely, some hotels use plug type A plugs – this is a two-pronged plug with two flat parallel pins. I only experienced this in Valladolid, Yucatan but it is worth keeping in mind because I had to then go and buy a whole new adaptor.

Travel medical kit 

Cuts, scrapes and silly accidents can happen anywhere so it pays to carry a little medical kit with you when you travel to Mexico, especially if you are going to be doing a lot of hiking and outdoor activities.

Most pre-packaged medical kits come with essential things like band-aids, gauze, scissors, tweezers, and alcohol wipes. Then, they are usually spacious enough that you can add in any extra items that you need like painkillers, antihistamines, antiseptic cream, calamine lotion/non-prescription hydrocortisone cream for mosquito bites, and rehydration sachets.

(You will find pharmacies that open late or 24/7 throughout Mexico so if you forget anything, it will be easy to pick it up locally too).

Insect repellent 

Mosquito repellent is an essential when traveling to most parts of Mexico, especially tropical coastal areas. Mosquitoes in Mexico do carry the zika virus and dengue fever, but as someone who aquires approximately 354 bites a month and has never experienced a serious illness, the main problem with mosquito bites is just the irritation of them. The itchiness, swelling and irritation can be seriously uncomfortable.

Buy a mosquito spray or repellent cream to re-apply throughout the day. It is particularly important to reapply the repellant at night as mosquitos are more active in the evenings or around bodies of water.

If you hate the smell of repellant, or you are particularly susceptible bites and want additional repellant products, you can also consider buying anti mosquito bracelets.

Mosquito plugins 

If you are going to be traveling in Mexico for any amount of time or you are one of us unfortunate ones that is particularly susceptible to mosquito bites, you might want to invest in a repellent plug in. 

(I live in the Yucatan and sometimes my body is a dot to dot of bites that have swollen up like welts. Using a plugin in each room of my house is often the only thing that works!) 

You can also find these at Walmart, Chedraui and most Mexican supermarkets locally. They cost around 150 pesos and usually last between 5-7 days.

Travel compression bags and packing cubes

Travel compression bags and packing cubes can help you fit more in your suitcase, an make everything more compact. They are great if you are visiting Mexico as part of a wider travel adventure and you need to organise your luggage.

Both items help you to keep all of your clothes neat and wrinkle-free, while compression bags help you to fit more in your case and compress bulky items. Just be sure to read all of the small print if you opt for compression bags and dont buy one that requires you to seal the bags up with a vacuum or it will be tricky to try and get everything back in your suitcase when you travel back from Mexico.

Portable power bank

A portable power bank is essential for charging your phone on the go, especially since most of us use our phones constantly throughout the day for checking directions on Google Maps, taking photos, using Whatsapp, checking info online, etc.

A good portable powerbank should be able to fully charge your phone a couple of times when fully charged. (Just make sure to charge it at your hotel before you head out for the day).

Security door stopper 

While Mexico doesnt always have the best reputation for safety, most touristy parts of the country are safe, provided that you use your common sense. Still, you should always take precautions for your safety so its worth investing in a security door stopper to use in your accommodation, particularly if you are going to be staying in an Airbnb or a low budget hotel or hostel.

This device is small, cheap, and takes up virtually no space in your luggage. Place it against your door at night and if someone tries to force their way into your room, it will sound an extremely loud siren that should be enough to scare off and deter any budding intruders/opportunists.

Selfie stick with tripod feet 

If you want to get some great looking photos from your trip to Mexico without having to ask strangers to take your photo for you, or always having to take selfies at arms length, a selfie stick with tripod feet is a good investment.

These are pretty reasonably priced, and the selfie stick and tripod legs both extend out to reasonable lengths/heights so that you can easily capture great pictures, especially if you use the timer on your phone/camera.

Period products 

As a female traveler, I always keep period products in my suitcase just in case. If you dont want to be reliant on tampons and pads when you travel, you can also look at reusable options like menstrual cups or period-proof underwear.

I am a little squeamish about menstrual cups but I bought several period-proof panties (and even a period-proof thong) from Thinx a couple of years ago and I use them every month.

The underwear contains absorbant pads and I have found them effective even during very heavy flow days.

Tote bag/ laundry bag 

Take a small foldable cotton tote bag in your suitcase so that you can use it as a reusable grocery bag when going to mercados and supermarkets or when running dirty clothes to the laundrette. Most Mexican supermarkets dont give out plastic bags so it is helpful to have a light tote bag that folds up and takes virtually no space in your suitcase.

Hand sanitizer and wipes

Even after the global pandemic, it is good to take care of your own hygiene and always carry hand sanitizer and wet wipes/surface wipes in your bag. Many bathrooms in Mexico dont have soap, and if you are going to be eating messy, saucy tacos at street food stands, its a good idea to be able to clean your hands with sanitizer before you eat.

Carbon monoxide detector (if using Airbnb/VRBO) 

If you are going to be staying at private accommodations in Mexico, or staying at an Airbnb/VRBO property, it is a go invest in a carbon monoxide detector. That sounds like a weird item to travel with, but they are only a few dollars, don’t take up any amount of space in your luggage, and could genuinely save your life. 

Not to scare you, but there have been a couple of carbon-monoxide-related Airbnb deaths in Mexico over the last couple of years. Due to an increase in concerns about carbon monoxide poisonings, Airbnb has now made hosts aware that they can obtain free smoke detectors and carbon monoxide devices but the reality is that, of the dozens of properties I have stayed at, none have had one, and all have had gas cookers.

Umbrella and rain mac 

If you are traveling during the rainy season, it pays to take an umbrella and a rain mac just in case. (You might also want to invest in a waterproof backpack cover if you are going to be carrying important documents or electronics in your bag). 

Downpours can be strong and sudden, and sometimes if you are exploring a Mayan ruin or something, there might not be somewhere where you can immediately take cover.

Essential Toiletries and Self Care Products

Hair care products

While most hotels and accommodations often provide free shampoo and conditioner, it pays to take your own hair care products, particularly if you have color-treated, frizzy, dry, damaged, or problem hair. Hotel shampoos are usually generic and dont really address any particular issue, plus you can never really trust their quality.

The water in Mexico is a lot harder than in the US or Europe and is often full of sediments and sodium, so it can be quite drying for your hair and skin. If you have dry or thick hair, its a nice idea to pack a couple of sachets of deep conditioner to keeo it nourished.

Humidity sprays, anti-frizz serums and argan oil are also additional products you might want to consider depended on your hair type.

Reef safe sunscreen

You should apply an SPF to protect your skin every single day, even if it is cloudy out. However, when the sun is as intense and strong as it is in Mexico, this becomes even more essential.

A high SPF of factor 30 or above is a good idea and you might need to purchase a a separate sunscreen for your face because a lot of the body formulations are far too heavy and oily to apply to your face. (Many face SPF products are non oily and great these days and can be applied under your makeup).

Whatever you purchase ought to be marked as reef-safe. (You will be able to distinguish this by a little logo of reef plants on the front of the bottle).

Many beaches and cenotes in Mexico are home to fragile ecosystems, coral reefs and unique flora and fauna. The chemicals and ingredients in your generic sunscreens can be extremely harmful. 

Aftersun lotion

Pack a small bottle of aftersun lotion to help replenish your skins moisture after being out in the sun. Some of the most refreshing lotions contain coconut oil or aloe vera extract and are particularly soothing if you have a sunburn.

Mexico Travel Essentials for Beaches & Resorts

Beach cover-up/sarong 

It isnt appropriate or really accepted to wander off the beach in Mexico and go into restaurants, bars and local businesses in your swimsuit so a sarong or beach-cover-up can really come in handy. 

You might want to opt for a full-body kaftan or kimono-style coverup like this one, or just a skirt sarong that ties around your waist.

Beach tote

A cute, foldable beach tote bag like this one is great for days at the beach and stops your main travel backpack from getting all sandy. Most material tote bags take up minimal space in your suitcase when folded too.

A wide-brimmed hat 

The sun is no joke in Mexico and in many tropical coastal parts of the country, temperatures are routinely between 86°F and 108°F. A wide-brimmed hat can protect your head and scalp and help keep the sun off your face.

Microfibre beach towel

Pack a small microfibre beach towel for visiting beaches, pools, and cenotes in Mexico. Most hotels and accommodations do not permit you to take their towels off the premises.

Microfibre towels are great because they are lightweight and quick-drying, meaning they will not be soggy and disgusting if you have to shove them in your bag to transport them back to the hotel after a day at the beach.

What clothes should you take to Mexico?

As mentioned, the types of clothes that you should include in your Mexico packing list will vary substantially depending on whether you are traveling to tropical beach towns and resort areas, or to a city like CDMX and Guadalajara. I have provided suggestions for both eventualities below.

Summer/beach/resort packing list for Mexico

The packing list below is perfectly suited if you are visiting somewhere like Merida in the Yucatan, Cancun and the Riviera Maya, the Costa Maya, or Puerto Vallarta. You can expect summer temperatures in these areas even during the winter months, so while it is definitely much hotter in the summer, you can bring your summer wardrobe to these areas all year round.

The amount of clothing suggested here is perfect for a trip of around 10-14 days but of course, you can amend the quantities if you are going to be in Mexico for a longer or shorter period of time.

Packing list for Mexican cities (CDMX, Queretaro, etc)

As mentioned, Mexicans tend to dress quite conservatively in Mexican cities, even when its hot so wearing short shorts in Mexico City, Puebla, etc, even during June or July when its hot, is a sure way to draw extra, unwanted attention to yourself.

Most cities are at a higher altitude and experience more temperate climates, which can be quite chilly during the autumn and winter months. Take Mexico City for example – in June, the Mexican capital sees average daily temperatures between 70°F and 79°F and in November, it sees averages between 60°F  and 72°F.

Santiago de Queretaro (the Queretaro state capital) sees June average daily highs of around 80°F and November sees averages between 70°F and 82°F. We visited in late October 2023 and it was so cold in the evenings that we could see our own breath!

Packing list for Mexican cities

A suggested Mexican city packing list is provided below. Some items are only really needed after around late September/October when the temperatures drop.

  • Light coat or jacket (September to April)

  • 3 pairs of jeans or trousers

  • 2 light cardigans or long-sleeved sweaters to wear in the evenings

  • 7 sets of underwear

  • Comfortable shoes or sneakers for exploring cities

  • 2-3 nice outfits and a pair of smart shoes to wear on evenings out

  • Sleepwear

FAQs and Additional Info

Do you still have any concerns about what to pack for your trip to Mexico? I have tried to answer some common questions about drawing up a Mexico packing list below.

Hopefully you will find the information you are looking for there but if not, you can feel free to reach out to me.

You can pick things up locally if you need 

If you are somebody that gets stressed out easily when preparing for a trip, keep calm and remember that as long as you have your passport, phone and wallet, everything else can be replaced locally. Mexico has all of the same stores and amenities that you would expect in the US or anywhere else so if you arrive and find out you forgot your charger, your swimsuit, or something else, you will easily be able to find a replacement at a Mexican mall, convenience store or supermarket.

You can easily get your clothes washed locally

It is very easy and affordable to get your laundry done in Mexico. Luxury hotels and resorts will usually offer a laundry service although it often comes at a premium and might be somewhat pricey.

If you are staying in a city, you can head to the local lavanderia with a bag of your clothes. It typically costs no more than 40-60 pesos for 5-6 kilos of clothing.

Laundry services in Mexico are different to what you might be used to. You dont need to sit and wait in a room full of machines while your clothes are washed, a señora at the lavanderia will wash, dry and fold your clothes for you, and you can go and pick them up a day or two later.

Leave your valuables at home 

You really dont need to be bringing designer label clothes, $500 handbags or flashy jewelry to Mexico. For the most part, people here dont flash branded items or luxury goods and if anything, it is going to make you a target or give you an extra thing to worry about if you are leaving your expensive clothes in the hotel, or checking them in to the hold under a bus.

The only parts of Mexico where you really see people dressed in expensive, Designer clothing are perhaps San Miguel de Allende, Polanco in Mexico City, and parts of Merida in the Yucatan.
