Whether this is the first time you are going to Mexico or whether you have been many times before. It is always best to be prepared, to ensure that you have the essentials it can help save time and save money too. In this article, I will be sharing the top 5 best holiday essentials to ensure that you are prepared for your travels.
Here are the top 5 best holiday essentials for Mexico
1. AiRunTech Waterproof Pouch with Waist Strap (2 Pack)
- Adjustable waist strap
- Waterproof (up to 10 meters underwater)
- Reasonably sized to fit in documents and important items sizing 8.5 inches x 5.8 inches
A pouch is always a good idea especially when traveling. Not only just to keep your things safe but also to keep the important documents in. This waterproof pouch can also hold electronic devices as it is waterproof. Test out the waterproof pouch first without any documents or devices in first to ensure you know how to seal it and ensure there are no damaged parts.
The great thing about having transparent bags is that you can see through these bags and ensure all of the correct documents are still in the bag. Whether you choose to use this for a water trip or even using it to protect in case of any water splashes i.e. by the pool then it’s a win-win situation.
2. Anker PowerCore 10000 PD Redux, 10000mAh Portable Charger
- Universal Compatibility (works with any device that can be charged via USB-C)
- Small and compact and safe (contains advanced temperature control)
There is nothing worse than heading out on daytime activity and realizing your phone is due to die. Yes, you may have charged it up to 100% the night before, but whilst you have been on it in the Mexican heat the battery has decreased. Well having a portable charger will allow you to ensure your devices are up to full charge so you don’t miss out on taking those photos of the amazing scenery in Mexico.
Portable chargers are reasonable prices. Some cheaper ones, however, may not work as efficiently as other ones. I use this Ankler portable charger. Ankler for me is my go-to for technology accessories. I have been using their items for over 2 years now. The brand is reasonably priced I believe, for what you get. I trust the items so for me I will continue with sticking to Ankler for technology accessories.
3. OFF! Deep Woods Insect Repellent Aerosol, Dry
- Non-oily or greasy
- Lemon scented
- Contains 25% DEET
I have visited Mexico twice now, and every time I go I will get bitten at least once. I try to cover myself in oil, and aftersun to avoid being bitten. This isn’t enough for me though. I use Insect repellent sprays which may not exactly make me smell like perfume but I would rather not be bitten. During daytime activities, I would spray myself with this too. I wouldn’t wear any nice clothing whilst doing activities and so I didn’t mind spraying this on my skin and clothes.
4. Deweisn Folding Travel Mirror Lighted Makeup Mirror
- The mirror can be rotated, allowing you to choose your mirror angle
- Choice of 3 color LED’s
- Charge via Micro USB and let it be portable
A portable mirror is always handy. I even take one with me in my hand luggage, so that I can use it on the flight and touch up on makeup if needed. You may think you won’t need a portable mirror but it can come in handy if you are on a day trip out and need to re-apply suncream. The portable mirror is lightweight and also comes with lights, so at night or even in dark environments you would be able to check upon yourself.
5. MLVOC Travel Pillow 100% Pure Memory Foam Neck Pillow
- Adjustable rope lock
- Washable pillowcase
Now for me, travel pillows are a must. Regardless of the flight being short haul for only 2 hours, I still use it to provide extra comfort when traveling. This hasn’t only just got to be used when you are on a plane, but can also be used in a car or van. The travel pillow comes with a drawstring bag, making it even more portable and easier to carry. The pillowcase is removable from the memory foam and so it also gives you the chance to give your pillow a good wash to ensure it is kept hygienic.
