Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear Items that enable you to bring along the other items as effortlessly as possible. A very important list. Are you ready?
This list describes clothes most of us are quite likely to bring with us. Comfortable clothing, think layers so that you can take off and add clothes as the weather changes throughout the day. Outerwear as necessary, a lightweight rain jacket for late spring, summer and early fall; a heavier jacket for other months. An outfit for a special evening at a nice restaurant or the theater. If you're spending more than a day in Mexico City, check out the entire list for other necessary items.
Luggage and bags Sometimes bras made the headlines. When Madonna's famous pointy bra - designed by Jean Paul Gaultier for her Blonde Ambition tour - fetched more than four times its expected value and went under the hammer for a massive £14,100 at a Christie's auction in London. When a survey by Marks and Spencer was published confirming that more than 90% of British women are currently wearing a wrong-sized bra. The study found that more than half of the 2,000 women measured are a bigger cup size than they thought making the national average 36C... Let's draw a conclusion: Bra can for women be a good place to hide money!
Luggage and bags Just take what you always take when traveling.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear Shorts, shirts, shoes, sandals, pants, sweaters, jackets. Mexico lays on a high altitude, so it can get cold at night.
And also bring some fance clothes if you go dance the salsa or merengue
Toiletries and Medical Supplies Diarhea pills are a must like anywhere in the tropics. And just add all the normal stuff you always carry around with you, and if you have astma, bring extra stuff for it, or avoid Mexico city because of the smog
Photo Equipment Wide angle lenses are the best to take because it is an city, also a 100-135 lens will be handy for photographing people, and unless you go out the city and in the nature, leave your tele lenses at home.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear Adventure Travel
Miscellaneous If you have a large group and are planning to rent more than one car – it is very important to pack a set of walkie-talkies! Locals are not shy when driving and your group will get separated within the first two minutes. We had to drive two cars for about 10 hours and these were lifesavers!
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear In general, everything imported (made outside of Mexico) is very expensive here. More expensive than if purchased back home. Things that are made in Mexico can be good deals here, but don't come here looking for bargains in clothing. Clothes here are either cheap and crappy or nice and very expensive. Same goes for shoes, though you can find some ok shoes that are made in Mexico for a good price. Also, save your shorts for the beach. No one really wears them on the streets here. Bring some nice clothes if you are going to nice restaurants as most men will wear a jacket for dinner.
Luggage and bags Don't forget to bring a jacket when in Mexico City or anywhere in the mountains, it can get quite cold as it is high.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear Good walking shoes are a must, the cobblestones are uneven. There are holes in the streets and sidewalks so always look down when you walk. One woman tripped and was lucky to not hurt herself.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies I don't leave home without my Pepto Bismol.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear Piece of cloth used in parts of Africa and Asia. Can double as towel, beach towel, dressing gown, pillow and table cloth.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear Some EXTRA STUFF. Well, pick the ones you like/need, and leave the rest at home.
Don't carry items you don't need!
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear In really cold climates these are a must. A thin pair of cotton or light wool MITTENS takes up virtually zero space. The ones with grips on the palms and fingers are the best.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear If you go to Mexico City in summer you can just skip this list.
Only if the temperature is well below freezing.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear Buy one or two pairs of very good quality, and be sure the pockets are tight enough to give pickpockets a hard time. Bring JEANS, but leave them at home in case you're going to a really hot place.
