Entry for Brazilians in Mexico does not require a visa, recently some immigration rules were changed and today Brazilians only need to present to the immigration officer a valid passport that covers the entire travel period. Even though you do not need a visa, it is recommended that you have your round-trip flight reservation in hand, as well as proof of hotel reservation and financial funds.

Cancún and its hotel zone are super safe and very touristy places, you can walk around the city peacefully at night and not be afraid even if you are alone, but when you are in very busy places (usually downtown and souvenir shops) pay attention with your bag and belongings should be doubled, especially when taking a dip in the sea.

Upon arrival

When arriving at the airport it can seem a little confusing, we recommend a transfer service which is also very common in the city. This can be one less concern avoiding possible problems. After checking in at your hotel, take the opportunity to move around the city more calmly, getting to know a little bit of this Mexican paradise. It is also recommended to previously hire the transfer service from a company to make your transfer. If you want to save money, use the local buses or taxis that go to the city center, from the ADO Terminal to the Hotel Zone.

The sun is strong throughout the year in Cancún, but the seasons are different from Brazil, when it's summer there, it's winter here. The city receives tourists throughout the year, mainly between December and February, which is the driest time of the year and the high season period in the city. Cancun, like much of Mexico, is hot most of the year and the high temperatures serve as an extra stimulus to enjoy the Caribbean beaches and dives. During the night the weather cools down a little more, but it remains pleasant for those who want to experience the nightlife that the city offers.


The official currency of Mexico is the Mexican peso, but the use of the dollar is also very common, all commercial establishments use both currencies, but always returning the change in Mexican peso.

It is recommended to take dollars bought in Brazil to avoid the high IOF rate, and exchange at least a little to always carry both currencies. Debit and credit cards are also widely accepted in all restaurants and stores, it is also possible to find ATMs where tourists can withdraw cash in dollars or Mexican pesos.
