Mexico is a country known for its warm, welcoming people and breathtaking natural beauty. But India, Vietnam, Canada, and Brazil don’t have a monopoly on these things. With cities like Guadalajara and Cancun drawing in millions of visitors every year – who want to explore the country’s rich history – it’s easy to see why Mexico travel keeps getting tons of love from travelers all over the world.
Mexico is easily accessible by air, sea, and road. If you’re flying in, you have your pick of a number of major international destinations including Mexico City, Cancun (the country’s third-busiest airport), and Los Cabos International Airport. You can also arrive in the country by boat; Los Cabos is very close to the San Carlos Bay and has ferry ports to La Paz and Puerto Vallarta. And if you’re planning to drive, then you can easily reach the country via several major routes.
Flights to Mexico
Guadalajara International Airport (GDL) is a mere 2 hours and 45 minutes from Tijuana Airport. Cancun International Airport (CUN) is a little less than 4 hours apart. Don’t forget your passport! You’ll need this at the port of entry and boarding gates just in case there are any problems with your travel documents.
Mexico, like many other countries, charges a fee to leave its borders. Don’t forget to declare any valuables you’re carrying, including items you purchased at duty-free in the airport prior to your departure.
Mexico by Boat
There are plenty of ways to arrive in Mexico without stepping foot on its soil. Los Cabos International Airport is very close to San Carlos Bay, so you can reach the country by boat. There’s also a ferry from La Paz and Puerto Vallarta to Los Cabos as well. If you’re coming from the United States, you can also take a ferry down the Pacific coast or via St. Thomas and Puerto Rico.
