How do I get a tourist visa to enter Mexico?
Since the requirements to obtain a visa are vary from country to country, we recommend you to get in contact with the Mexican Consulate in your city, this way you will be able to get all the information you need as well as the procedures needed to obtain a tourist visa.

If you are citizen of Germany, Andorra, Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Czech Republic, Chile, South Korea, Cost Rica, Denmark, Slovenia, Spain, United States of America, Finland, France, Grate Britain, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, New Zealand, Holland, Poland, Portugal, Puerto Rico, San Marino, Singapore, South Africa, Swiss, Sweden, Uruguay or Venezuela, you can enter Mexico without a visa, just presenting your passport and the "Forma Migratoria de Turista, Transmigrante, Visitante persona de negocios o Visitante Consejero" (tourist migratory form) which you can find at your local travel agencies ,airlines or at the moment you enter Mexico. At the point of entry the immigration agent can ask you for further proof of economic and financial solvency, as well as for your return ticket to your country.

If you are NOT from any of these countries, then you MUST go to the Mexican Consulate Representation in your country. If you have family member, friend or relative in Mexico, he/she can realize this procedure at the National Immigration Institute (INM).

He will be able to know all of the requirements needed for this procedure in any of the INM branches in the country I am in Mexico as a tourist... How can I extend my stay in Mexico? You must go to any of the National Immigration Institute branches to ask for your extension. You will be asked to present your valid passport, the Migratory Tourist Form you filed when you entered the country and to prove your economic solvency as well as a payment for your rights to stay. This will only take a few minutes of your time.

Aduana
Si adquieres productos en los Estados Unidos y deseas introducirlos a territorio nacional, tienes derecho a importar diariamente, sin pago de impuestos, mercancía para consumo personal por el equivalente a $50 dólares, acumulables a familiares directos en el vehículo.

Para evitar embargos, considera lo siguiente:
Los residentes fronterizos extranjeros con visa de turista o estudiante no pueden introducir vehículos extranjeros.

Debes pasar por el carril de AUTODECLARACIÓN cuando te excedas en tu franquicia.

La mercancía de segunda ya sea regalada, comprada o personal debe pasar por el carril de AUTODECLARACIÓN, y al instante se determinará si debes pagar impuestos.

Los instrumentos médicos requieren permisos de la Secretaria de Salud. Están permitidos 3 litros de alcohol y 2 paquetes de cigarros, así como 25 puros para residentes del extranjero o del interior de la república.

La mercancía repetitiva o para uso comercial debe importarse, y el trámite se realizará a través de una agencia aduanal.

La franquicia de $300 dólares sólo es vigente en los meses de diciembre y enero con el programa "Bienvenido Paisano".

No es aplicable la franquicia cuando la mercancía va a ser enviada.

Language
Spanish is the official language; English is understood and/or spoken by most people employed in the tourism industry. French, Italian, German and many other languages are spoken by tour guides and concierges.
How is the Weather?
Tijuana's weather is been considered like "Mediterranean", in other words, every year we enjoy en average temperature of 68 F.
What can I wear?
Tijuana's weather will put few demands in your wardrobe. Days are normally sunny, even in winter, so don't forget to bring shorts and T-shirts. Now, the evening is a different story, since we are at the coast, evenings are most of the time cool, even in the summer, so be sure to bring a sweater or a jacket.

Some restaurants as well as some bars and discos, require formal clothing, so we recommend that you bring at least one formal and a casual change of clothes.
Business Hours
Banks: Weekdays from 9 a.m. to 4p.m. Some do business on Saturday
Offices: Weekdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Shops: Every day from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.; those along the major tourist areas stay open till 10 p.m. and even later.
Currency and Credit Cards
Mexican Pesos. American funds are widely accepted, though we recommend buying some pesos, especially for shopping at the Mercado and tips. Currency can be exchanged at casas de cambio (exchange houses), banks, and hotels, though the latter usually have the worst rates. ATMs are readily available and accept foreign bankcards. Major credit cards are widely accepted. Traveler’s checks or letters of credit in U.S. dollars issued by well-known banks or travel organizations are readily negotiable in banks and hotels. Sterling traveler’s checks are not readily negotiable except at head offices of banks in the country's capita, and may be subject to a considerable discount. To avoid additional exchange rate charges, travelers are advised to take traveler’s checks in U.S. dollars.
Drinking Water
Most hotels have purified water. However, bottled water is recommended for drinking. Tap water is not recommended.
Electricity
120 volts, 60 cycles AC (same as the U.S.).
Medical Attention
Visitors requiring the services of a doctor should contact the front desk of their hotel. Doctors are on call 24 hours a day.
Time
Tijuana is on Pacific Standard Time
Tips on Tipping
Restaurant tipping is 15 to 20 percent for good service. Local sales tax (I.V.A.) is fifteen percent and should not be mistaken for gratuity.
Porters should get approximately US$1.00 per bag; hotel maids should get US$.50 to US$1.00 per day. Taxi drivers do not expect tips unless you hire them for several hours or if they handle baggage for you. Don’t forget to tip your guides!
It's also customary to tip washroom and parking attendants-even kids who watch your car-a few pesos are always greatly appreciated.

Car Rentals
International Driver’s permits are not required, but they’re a good idea. You can obtain one from the U.S., Canadian or your country's automobile associations. You must be at least 25 years old and have a major credit card to rent. Acapulco is an easy city to drive around: most hotels and attractions are on the main avenue, or "Costera", which follows the shore of the bay from one end to the other.
