So you’re planning a trip to Cancun? How exciting! We love Yucatan, Mexico and have spent many months there so we’ve got plenty of experience on what to pack for Cancun. In fact, we believe we have created the ultimate beach vacation checklist on packing for Mexico.
Many people make the mistake of thinking that packing for Cancun vacations doesn’t require much thought. Throw a couple of swimsuits and a sundress in a bag and good to go! However, we have found that is not the case.
First of all there are numerous important documents to remember when you travel out of your home country. Then there are the health concerns that come with traveling somewhere tropical.
Plus, if you want to partake in some of the awesome stuff there is to do in Cancun and the Yucatan coast you will definitely need more than just a swimsuit. For example what do you need if you want to swim in a cenote? Maybe a party night in one of Cancun’s hot nightclubs? How about dinner in Playa del Carmen or visiting Mayan ruins? Then there are the fun and fabulous family of Xcaret Eco-Parks which require some special items.
