México requires a valid passport for entry. Upon entry into the country, visitors will be granted a tourist visa that can be requested for the length of your stay. Keep this visa, a small piece of paper, with your passport. There is no reason to carry your passport information and visa with you on our expeditions.
The weather is mild in the winter and hot in the summer. In this desert environment, the temperature from day to night can change dramatically due to the low humidity. During December – April, be prepared with long pants and sweaters for the chilly nights but enjoy spring time clothes during the day. During the summer, you will probably not wear anything except your bathing suit and snorkel gear.
Protected Areas Conservation:
The National Commission of Natural Protected Areas (CONANP) requires that all visitors to federally protected lands and waters purchase a park pass. For visitors on our expeditions, you will receive a Conservation Passport for $25. This passport was created to raise funds for the continued protection of the shorelines, inlets, and beaches that make this area so extraordinary to visit. The passport allows you to visit Mexico’s Protected Areas as many times as you wish for an entire year. For visitors on our day trips, the daily fee of $10 per person is required to enter federally protected areas.
