WHAT TO DO

Travel Tips

  • Negotiate the price of a taxi ride before accepting, if there’s no meter.
  • Don’t order your tequila with salt and lime. Decidedly unlocal!
  • Bartering is expected at markets, but don’t undervalue the goods.
  • Don’t accept tour offers at the airport. You can find better deals elsewhere.
  • If you’re not staying in a resort that filters water, beware of drinking the water (including ice) and eating unpeeled vegetables.
  • Leave a copy of your passport with a relative or friend in the U.S.
  • Avoid wearing expensive-looking jewelry or watches.
