Best Mexico Travel Tips For The Vacation Of A Lifetime
  • When is the best time to visit Mexico?

    The best time to visit Mexico is during the dry season between December and April when there is little or no rain. The coolest months are December through February, although temperatures can reach averages of 82.4 °F. The wet season is between May and October with showers and increased humidity.
    According to Velas Resorts, January is one of the best months to visit Mexico when its dry, beautiful and less crowded than in December and February when people are on break from school. The Caribbean Coast and Riviera Maya have a hurricane season from June to November and our resorts offer great deals during this time of year.
  • How old do you have to be to drink in Mexico?

    The minimum legal drinking age in Mexico is 18 years old. Mexico requires that young adults show photo identification, either a passport or driver's license, as proof of age when buying alcohol. Be prepared to have your ID at most resorts, bars, restaurants, and nightclubs, even though most are not strict in their practice of checking.
  • What are the best beaches in Mexico?

    Mexico is blessed with some of the best beaches in the world, edging the Caribbean coast, Pacific Ocean and Sea of Cortez. The top beaches in Mexico include Puerto Vallarta's Playa Los Muerto, Punta Mita just north of PV, Mismolaya to the south, and Playa del Carmen and Tulum on the Riviera Maya, Chileno Beach and Playa Médano in Cabo San Lucas. 
  • Is it dangerous to travel to Mexico?

    One of the most popular vacation destinations on the planet, Mexico is safe for US and international travelers according to the Mexico Travel Advisory. Mexico's beautiful coastlines, beaches and resorts - including Puerto Vallarta, Los Cabos and Riviera Maya - are not dangerous for vacationers, families and solo travelers, and most resorts are safe with security protected grounds. When visiting any foreign country, travelers should be cautious, aware of their surroundings, explore with a friend, and have an itinerary with directions. The concierge team at Velas Resorts can assist with local tours, sightseeing recommendations, and safety tips.
  • Is the water safe to drink in Mexico?

    As a precaution you should not drink tap water in Mexico even if it's purified at the source. Most resorts and hotels provide bottled water or large jugs of purified water for you to refill your bottle. Velas Resorts stocks its suites with bottled water daily as included in it's all inclusive plan. As a rule, stick to bottled water when traveling in Mexico.
  • What can Velas Resorts do for groups?

    Velas Resorts caters to groups and event planners with luxury suites, indoor and outdoor venues, and activities for business meetings, conferences, events, weddings, reunions, parties, and retreats. Contact our event planners to create a memorable group event in breathtaking oceanfront destinations including Puerto Vallarta, Playa del Carmen and Los Cabos, Mexico.
  • What should I take to Mexico?

    When traveling to Mexico, you must take your passport and ID or driver's license to enter the country. Since the weather is warm year-round, even in the dry and wet seasons, you should always take light casual clothing, beach wear, swimsuits, sunglasses, hats, and sunblock. If you plan on exploring the mountains or desert areas, pack comfortable shoes or sneakers and a jacket for the chilly evenings. Many luxury resorts, restaurants and nightclubs also require dress clothes and evening apparel.
