We are very glad you are coming to visit us at Hotel Playa Mazatlán Beach Hotel! We can’t wait to see you. Let’s not get ahead of ourselves though! There is one important detail to attend to before you hop into a cab, drive to the airport, catch a plan, and fly into Mazatlán. Packing. You don’t want to forget something important. Don’t worry, we will help you out.
Packing for your trip
This isn’t just packing for any trip, this is packing for your trip. This means being prepared to do the activities that you want to do. Are you planning on doing any fine dining during your trip? If so, you want to pack appropriate clothing, a formal outfit and maybe even a jacket. Are you interested in going hiking when you visit Mazatlán? Don’t forget to pack some sturdy outdoor pants and a pair of hiking boots. We always recommend checking weather reports before you get here. Rain is common in Mazatlán, you don’t want to be unprepared for the elements! Of course, the number one thing to remember when coming to visit Mazatlán, is a swimming suit.
Packing the Essentials
Mazatlán is thriving urban city. If you forget a pair of shoes, a dress shirt, or sunscreen, you can always run into town to buy a new one. However, there are somethings you cannot get in Mazatlán. These are your packing essentials. Start with your passport. Without it you will not be able to move back and forth across the border. Prescription drugs are another must-pack item. We also recommend you bring copies of your travel insurance papers if you have them. Personally, we think a camera is an essential item when visiting Mazatlán, but we will leave that decision up to you!

Regardless of the type of medical condition that a person has, there are some simple and effective ways to improve overall health when traveling for pleasure or business. For example, carrying an adequate amount of medication that includes extra medication is important especially if a return trip home is delayed intentionally or unintentionally. Anytime a trip is extended for some reason it is always a good idea to have additional medication ready and available.
Proper Medical Treatment Is Provided When Necessary
In addition, it is always a good idea to carry medication in a carry-on suitcase as opposed to checking it with checked baggage. However small the risk, there are always a chance that luggage could become lost or stolen. Equally important is to consider wearing a medical alert device or something similar. Letting others know your particular medical condition is critical to ensuring that the proper medical treatment is provided when necessary. Another thing that should be considered with regard to traveling safely with a medical condition is to always carry basic medical information on your person.
List Of Allergies And Current Illnesses
Even if someone is wearing a medical alert device identifier it is a good idea to have other additional information in a wallet or briefcase. This would include information such as health insurance data, travel insurance information and name and dosages of particular types of medication. In addition, a list of allergies and current illnesses as well as primary physician contact information should all be made readily available. This information can be vitally important if someone were to become ill or incapacitated while on a vacation or a business trip.
Doctor’s Letter Detailing Specifics Of An Implanted Medical Device
Another great idea is to consider carrying travel type medical insurance with pre-existing type coverage. This is a smart way to protect from the unexpected while traveling abroad or even within your own country. Finally, it is recommended to carry a doctor’s letter any time an individual has some type of implanted medical device. From monitors to pacemakers and other types of similar internal devices, having a doctor’s letter that details the specifics of an implanted medical device can only work to a patient’s advantage.

Traveling virtually anywhere in the world today requires having an appreciation for the proper management and handling of money. That said there are a few essential Money tips for travelers that everyone should consider when traveling locally or across the globe. For example, common strategies that should be implemented when traveling include always having a backup credit card just in case others fail. Equally important is to avoid keeping money in one place when traveling.
Another great idea is to cover the keypad when entering a pin number at an ATM machine. Just as important is to consider contacting your primary bank and letting them know you will be traveling so that your cards will not become locked out unexpectedly. Perhaps one of the best ways to gain access to cash while traveling is to use ATM machines. Many consider ATMs to be one of the easiest ways to access foreign currency when traveling abroad. It is typically safer to use local currency than it is to use credit cards while traveling.
Local Currency And Cash Is Usually The Best
This is especially true considering the fact that many credit card companies will apply an additional fee to use a card overseas or in another country. Currency conversion surcharges can mount quickly and cost a traveler a large amount of money over the long run. While a credit card may be ideal for making reservations, local currency and cash is usually the best option for spending money while on vacation. Finally, it is always a good idea to convert all local currency back into US currency prior to leaving your preferred vacation destination to return home.
Having Peace Of Mind While On Vacation
Most would agree that with modern technology managing money while on vacation has become easier and less stressful. However, following these simple tips and strategies can go a long way in making any vacation far more enjoyable and less stressful. Having peace of mind while on vacation can only add to the overall enjoyment that one expects to have while traveling. As an added note, traveler’s checks are not as common as they once were. That is why acquiring local currency while on vacation is still the best option.
