What You Need to Know Before Traveling To Cabo San Lucas, Mexico


Los Cabos is a wonderful vacation paradise, with beautiful beaches, superb weather, and friendly people. It is a place to visit and enjoy, where you can forget about your everyday problems and get away from the hectic life you may lead at home.

The people of Mexico are very friendly and extremely courteous. They aim to please all of their visitors.

Before Departure

US Citizens are required to show proof of citizenship when traveling to and from Mexico. Each visitor will need a valid picture I.D. and one of the following: a) State issued Birth Certificate with an affixed seal; b) Naturalization Certificate, with laminated Naturalization Card or a valid US passport. (Expired passports are not valid.)

In route to Los Cabos you will receive the Mexico Tourist Card and a Mexico Customs Declaration form to be filled out prior to arrival in Los Cabos. Each visitor, including infants and children, must be in possession of a Tourist Card. The Mexico Tourist Card should be kept with your ticket as it will be needed when checking in for your return flight.


In addition to possessing one of the forms of documentation mentioned above, an unaccompanied US or Canadian citizen under 18 years of age:
* a) Is required to possess a notarized letter signed by both parents giving permission for the minor to travel alone

* b) If traveling with one parent, he or she must have a notarized letter from the absent parent, giving permission for the traveling parent to take the minor out of the country or an original court order indicating that the traveling parent has full custody.

* c) If the minor is traveling with one parent, and the other is deceased, the deceased parent’s Death Certificate must be presented. (Immigration requirements subject to change by Mexican Goverment.)

Upon Arrival

After clearing Immigrations and Customs with your baggage, proceed to the airport lobby area.
CAUTION - There will be timeshare representatives tempting you with freebies as you walk past them.

You will find car rental desks, taxis and transfer companies just outside of the Customs area.
