We have visited Mexico several times over the past 15 years. We have been on our own, as well as with our kids. This is a compilation of some of the essentials to bring. We have done a variety of traveling through Mexico, from staying at resorts to renting condos, renting a car and driving from Cancun to the west coast of Merida, so we have had a variety of experiences traveling.
