All international travelers need to complete a Tourist Card on arrival, including children.
You keep one half of the slip which is returned when leaving the country; if you lose it or forget to bring it, you may need to settle a cash fine on departure. To avoid the queues and save time at the airport, print the cards and complete them in advance at www.cancunairport.com/tourist-card.
Although many outlets take credit and debit cards or USD, you will definitely need Mexican Pesos while in Mexico.
Be aware that local ATMS can charge hefty fees for cash withdrawals.
