Mexico Tourist Card
If ever you are going to Mexico you will need a Mexico tourist card, it is one of the necessities you must acquire together with your passport, and of course, yourself.

Let me tell you more about it.
Mexico Tourist Card Types
If you are wondering what type of tourist card you can apply for then here it is! You can apply for either an Air type Tourist card or Land type Tourist card. There is not much of a difference but obviously, when you are traveling by air you apply for Air Type Tourist card and if you are traveling by land you will have to apply for Land Type Tourist card, the other difference is you can get the Air Type Tourist card for free and the Land type for $29.00, it’s still a great deal, right?
