What to Bring


Mexico:

The Yucatan peninsula is characterized by tropical fauna and flora at its best, but this also means warm and humid, so dress accordingly. June to October are considered to be the rainy season, but even during these months the rain is usually short-lived and gives way to the famous Mexican sun within a few hours. Tropical flora and fauna can be enjoyed all year long and temperatures are usually in the 80s.

Please make sure to bring the following:

Mosquito repellent - Sunscreen - Hiking boots or good pair of tennis shoes - Rain gear - Bathing Suites - Rash guard for the water-sports people - Sun glasses
