Entry requirementsUK citizens do not need a visa. You just need a current passport that is valid for the entirety of your stay. Keep your FMM on you; you'll also need it to leave the country. With it, you can spend up to 180 days on Mexican soil. Other nationalities need to check out the regulations.
Health adviseVaccinations are not obligatory But vaccines against Typhoid and Hepatitis A are recommended. It may also be wise to have a Rabies shot.
Airline ticketsPrices for return tickets vary according to the time of travel and the airline you use. From the UK you can pick up deals starting from £300.
Time differenceMexico has 3 time zones. London (GMT) is +6hrs ahead of Mexico City. So if it's midday in London, it's 6am in Mexico City.
LanguageSpanish is the official language. English is taught in most Mexican schools, but take your dictionary nonetheless! And try to learn a few basic phrases before you start your Mexican journey.
