    Maybe pack your GPS

    Miscellaneous: If you are planning on renting a car and own a Garmin GPS with card slot, you may want to consider packing getting a GPS map for Mexico and packing both for your trip/

    You can a GPS map for Mexico for about ½ price on E-Bay. The 2008 map worked very well during my trip to the Yucatan. The Points of Interest database is not as good as the one for the US and some of the one way roads in Valladolid were not marked as one way roads. However in general, the GPS map worked out very well.

    Please rate this tip and my other tips should you find them useful, interesting, or like the photos.

    A compass, allways take a compass when travelling.

    Miscellaneous: I allways bring a compass with me when travelling. It is a usefull thing to have if you're getting off the beaten path, or even moving around a big city. If you get lost and aren't sure if you're on the right road or direction a compass can give you enough of a clue to make the call whether to continue on or back track and get onto another road. I drove across country from the Dzibilchaltun Ruins to Izamal and my compass was a huge help.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: The hot, wet season is May to October, with June to September the hottest and wettest months of all. Wear light cotton. In the mountainous interior you'll need warmer clothng. Don't forget a hat and sunglasses.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: It's always a good idea to travel with a small first-aid kit. Some of the items that should be included are: adhesive bandages, a sterilised gauze bandage, elastic bandage, cotton wool, thermometer, tweezers, scissors, antiseptic, burn cream, insect repellent containing DEET and multivitamins.

    Photo Equipment: According to Mexican laws you are allowed to bring in no more than one still camera and one camcorder with 12 rolls of film for each.
    A wide-angle lens is useful for the shots of magnificent landscapes and coastline.

    Miscellaneous: Bring a valid passport and carry a Mexican government tourist card, or a copy therof, at all times
