FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT THE INSURANCE TRIP TO MEXICO
IS TRAVEL INSURANCE REQUIRED IN MEXICO?
Really, if you travel for free, travel insurance is not mandatory, nobody will demand it when you enter Mexico. The truth is that most likely nothing will happen to you. As a traveler I have visited several countries without insurance, until an incident happened to me and I experienced first hand the importance of insurance.
WHY WE RECOMMEND TRAVELING WITH TRAVEL INSURANCE
Travel insurance in Mexico is not mandatory, but if you are an independent and foreign traveler, you would definitely travel with travel insurance. You don't have coverage in Mexico and private healthcare, here and everywhere, is expensive. They really are not very expensive for the security they give you. Travel insurance has evolved a lot given the need in the world of tourism. Iati Seguros is an insurance company that has been operating since 1885 and which has focused more on travel insurance. We have a 5% discount with them, it is the one we use personally and it is the one we recommend.
TYPES OF MEDICAL SERVICES IN MEXICO
In Mexico there is SOCIAL SECURITY and PRIVATE. If in some case as a foreigner something happens to you in Mexico that requires treatment, you would have the option of going to a private doctor. If it is something less like a quick consultation, there are many economic consultancies (for about 40 pesos a consultation) in various pharmacies in the country. They are medical centers widely used by the population, and as a foreigner you can still go to them.
IF YOU ARE A MEXICAN TRAVELER
As a Mexican traveler in Mexico you have your social security or your private insurance, with that you are covered as established. If you travel with an agency or with accredited guides, they have the obligation to give you civil liability insurance. Likewise, parks, archaeological zones and other recreational places have civil liability insurance, but this is not always the case. If you travel to another country, you can contract our IATI INSURANCE or look at your private insurance if it covers international travel.
INSURANCE ON OUR TRIPS

RECOMMENDATIONS FOR YOUR TRAVEL INSURANCE
Always leave a copy of the policy and your insurance contract with your family in your place of origin. We also recommend you with this and other important documents to carry a digitized copy on your phone, the original and another photocopy saved separately. Are we exaggerating 'Nothing has to happen, but if at the moment you do not have the happy piece of paper, any procedure is torture, so we better take precaution. Hire your insurance from the day you take the plane in your country of origin.
