    Hi guys,

    My fiance and i are going to Cancun for two weeks in August for our honeymoon however neither of us have been here before so any info would be greatfully appreciated.

    Do we need any jabs to travel?
    Does anyone know how long you must have on your passport to travel? What excursions to do?
    Is it worth buying the club passes from the hotel (barcelo costa cancun) for freen entry, bar and transport?
    What kind of weather can we expect?
    Will there be lots of kids at this time of year?
    Are there taxes payable at the airport which have to be paid to enter and leave the country?

    Sorry for the exhaustive list just soo many questions to ask!

    Hope to hear from you soon.

    For excursions, I always recommend Chichen Itza (may make the new list of the "7 Wonders of the World", and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site) and Isla Mujeres. Here's a list of some of a number of tours for the area:

    Hi, welcome to the board.

    Do we need any jabs to travel?
    You dont need any to enter the country. Your Dr will probably recommend Typhoid and Hepatitis C. You wont need to worry about malaria precautions unless heading into the jungle areas for extended periods.


    Does anyone know how long you must have on your passport to travel?
    You'll need 6 months left on your passport, from the date you enter Mexico.

    What excursions to do?
    Far too many to list in detail, have a look at my page below for details and pics of the popular ones:

    Is it worth buying the club passes from the hotel (barcelo costa cancun) for freen entry, bar and transport?
    Usually, yes. $30-$40 is the going rate.

    What kind of weather can we expect?
    Hot 90+ almost every day. It is hurricane season but you'll be extremely unlucky to catch one.

    Will there be lots of kids at this time of year?
    There never seems to be loads of kids any time of the year in the same way you might encounter in Greece and Spain. It is in school holidays so you should expect some though.

    Are there taxes payable at the airport which have to be paid to enter and leave the country?
    If you're from the UK (which you are) Nothing to enter, but a departure tax on exit of $40 US per person. Those traveling from the US and Canada will normally have this included as part of their ticket .

    Hope that helps
