I have read several places on the net about Cancun or Mexico in general, and this seems to be a re-occurring question. Do I need a passport to travel to Cancun? And the answer is yes.
Cancun is one of the premier vacation hot spots in the world boasting over 100 hotels and about 4 Million visitors per year. With that kind of traffic you might think its a little more connected to the states, or its borders are open. But the bottom line is, it is still a foreign country. Wither your traveling from Europe or the states, a passport is necessary and highly recommended for ease in getting through customs, etc.
Some other common questions are, what do I pack for Cancun? What is the weather like? etc. Well, I like to travel light, but I would suggest sunscreen and beach wear as definite necessities. There are an infinite number of questions you might have. You may even have questions about where and how to exchange currency or possibly communicating in Spanish.
I have found Jim’s book “50 Things You Must Know Before You Travel to Mexico” to be extremely helpful in answering some common and uncommon questions, from safety and trip insurance, to communicating. And I tell you that really helped out because I don’t speak Spanish very well.

So if your just planning a family vacation or an extended trip, be sure to get that checklist out and don’t forget your passport!
