Is travel insurance compulsory in Mexico?

Travel insurance is not required to visit Mexico. However, we strongly recommend that all travelers take out travel insurance.

Why should you take out travel insurance for Mexico?

Travel insurance for Mexico is recommended for several reasons:

  1. Medical expenses: In the event of illness or injury, medical expenses can be very high in Mexico, especially if you have to be hospitalized. Travel insurance will cover these costs, so you don't have to pay out of pocket.
  2. Repatriation: If you need to be evacuated to receive appropriate medical care, travel insurance can cover the cost of evacuation.
  3. Third-party liability: If you cause damage to others or property, travel insurance can cover the cost of third-party liability.
  4. Loss and theft: If your baggage is lost or stolen.
  5. Cancellations and delays: If your trip is cancelled or delayed due to unforeseen circumstances, such as illness or natural disaster.

Health care in Mexico

What are the health risks in Mexico?

Mexico presents certain health risks for travelers, such as diarrhea, dengue fever, Zika and chikungunya, typhoid fever, hepatitis A and rabies. It's important to take preventive measures such as drinking sealed bottled water, eating well-cooked food, using mosquito repellent, avoiding contact with infected animals and getting vaccinated if necessary.

What type of plumbing system should I use?

In Mexico, it is preferable to use the private network, which is certainly more expensive, but generally offers better quality healthcare.

How can I reduce the risks of travelling responsibly (or fairmoove) in Mexico?

If you want to travel responsibly and fairmoove in this beautiful country, here are three things you can do:

  1. Respect local culture and traditions by paying close attention to dress codes and customs.
  2. Choose eco-responsible accommodation and environmentally-friendly activities. For example, explore nature by hiking or cycling rather than taking car tours.
  3. Try to limit your carbon footprint by choosing eco-responsible means of transport, such as public transport, or by sharing a vehicle with other travellers.

Did you know that Mexico is one of the best places for eco-tourism? The country is home to numerous protected areas and nature reserves to preserve the local flora and fauna. An interesting anecdote is that in the Riviera Maya region, hotels have been built using local materials and traditional techniques to minimize their impact on the environment. With a collective commitment to sustainable tourism, we can continue to enjoy the beauty of Mexico for many years to come.
