Chiapas Mexico Carnival Gay Tour tourThe word "Carnival" refers to the festivities that occur in many predominately Catholic cities around the world every year prior to the Lenten season. These celebrations typically involve a parade combining some elements of a circus, masks, and a huge street party. However, every country brings its own character to their own Carnival, and Mexico has some of the most exuberant in the world.

Quote or Reservation

Carnival usually begins with the Quema del Mal Humor, the "Burning of Bad Mood," usually an effigy of an unpopular political figure whose burning symbolizes people leaving behind everyday worries so that the merriment can begin. There is the crowning of a Carnival Queen or King, with parades, fireworks, games and rides. On this thrilling 9-night gay group tour, you will experience historic cities, archaeology, architecture, agriculture and wildlife, plus the delightful revelries of an unforgettable Mexican Carnival.

Trip Notes

Entry Requirements
For U.S. Citizens a valid passport is the only document required to enter Mexico for stays of up to 60 days.

Immunizations & Health
No immunizations are currently required for travel to Mexico, but it is wise to have your inoculations up-to-date. Is your tetanus booster current?

Exit Requirements
There is currently no separate departure tax required of visitors leaving Mexico other than that included with the cost of your airline ticket.

What to Bring
In March, average daily temperatures in Mexico City and San Cristobal can get as cool as 45 degrees at night up to a high of 75 degrees during the day. It can be a full 10 degrees warmer in Palenque. You won’t need a suit jacket or tie, as the tour is informal and dinner attire will be casual, but you will want nice casual outfits for dinners. Try to pack light and bring only one piece of luggage plus your carry-on. Create mix and match outfits, and think about layering! Pack any medications you require in a carry-on bag and leave expensive jewelry at home.

Money Matters
Mexico's currency is the Mexican Peso (MXP), with bills in 20, 50, 100 and 500 MXP denominations and coins in .50, 1, 2, 5 and 10 pesos. Although most tourist centers widely accept U.S. dollars, we recommend using Pesos during your visit. Money exchange facilities offer the best exchange rate. On April 30, 2018, the exchange rate was 19.15 MXP to the U.S. $1.00.

Tipping in Mexico
Tipping guidelines for Mexico are nearly the same as tipping guidelines used in the United States or Canada, with some exceptions. Most service employees earn very little or no base salary and the tips they earn comprise the vast majority of their overall income. In restaurants, it is customary to leave your server a tip of 15% of the cost of the food/beverages before the value added tax.

Travel Insurance
We strongly encourage you purchase Travel Insurance to cover all aspects of your travel in Mexico.
