Planning a trip to Cancun

I'm planning a trip to Cancun, Mexico but I have never been outside of the USA and don't know what kind of entry documentation I need besides a passport. How do I find out everything that will be required of me when I enter the border?

I just want to make sure I don't frick up and not allowed entry when I get there. Are there travel agents or someone I can talk to? I lookup stuff online but I want to be sure.

      Yeah OP just take a gander at . Long story short, just a passport that is valid for the duration of your stay.

      Some more friendly protips. I would arrange transportation to your accomodations before going. Don't stray far from the tourist zones. If anyone offers you absolutely anything at all that you didn't ask for, say no thanks and walk away. You'll be fine m8.

          the official government site is definitive anyway but it can be about as engaging as reading a phone book. usually i just look at whatever blog posts come up in a google search that have a recent date

    US citizens with a US passport have visa free travel to most countries you'd ever want to travel to. You just go and bring your passport. That's it. When you arrive at Cancun Airport there will be three lines, one on the far right for manual immigration and one on the far left if you want to do electronic where you just scan your passport and it'll print a ticket. Don't go to the third middle line that's for Mexican Citizens returning to Mexico only.

    If you fly there, your airline will handle the immigration requirements, including payment of the immigration fee (included in your ticket). If you are driving there, you need to get Mexican auto insurance and a temporary import permit for your vehicle, in addition to filling out the FMM (immigration form) and paying the immigration fee. Getting the temporary import permit for your vehicle also requires payment of a fee, plus a deposit of a few hundred dollars in cash.
    Driving in Mexico can be an adventure; I've taken long roadtrips around the country on two occasions. The Sierra Madre Oriental is spectacularly beautiful, but maybe not the safest. The Pico de Orizaba region is one of the world epicenters of biodiversity. Veracruz is a cheap and friendly state with fresh fruit everywhere and some decent beaches. I've never been south of Veracruz city, however.

        You can buy the auto insurance online the company I use is called mexpro. I don't think you can do that with the tourist card or car importation because they give you a physical paper ticket/windshield sticker.

    Book the flight, show up with your passport, and when you land just follow everyone else off the plane and you’ll be out in 15 minutes.

    Be prepared for a shut show of taxis when you exit the airport. I’d recommend the ADO bus.

    Currently in Playa del Carmen.
    When you exit the airport there's going to be an assload of salesmen both inside and outside of the airport. Just ignore them unless you're alright with getting ripped off and if you need a ride you can always use the Uber app.

    >Cancun
    lol
    I visited 7 cities in Mexico last year and Cancun was the absolute worst. Just an endless strip of hotels and shops and not much else. I have no idea why anyone would willingly go there.

    The Cancun airport has an automated customs entry lane for people with US and Canadian passports now. Just hang to the left when you get to customs. You walk up, scan your passport, walk into a little booth, and wait 30 seconds while it scans you. Then you're all done.
