Travel Insurance for your next Mexico vacation

Cancun hospital We highly recommend buying travel insurance through your travel agent or purchase your own, because you don’t need it until you need it! You never know when those unexpected things will happen, like, airlines going bankrupt, hurricanes, illness or death in the family…..many things that could cause you to have to cancel or postpone your vacation.
We use InsureMyTrip

Check with your medical insurance company, if you are not covered while traveling outside the U.S., you need to purchase medical coverage, medical evacuation coverage is another important coverage to consider.
You will have to pay for medical expenses upfront at a Cancun hospital and be reimbursed by insurance. So, due to this reason, I recommend having a high-limit credit card available for emergencies. For example, the picture to the left is the time Perry had a painful kidney stone in Cancun. I took him to emergency where the bill  was more that $400us. The travel insurance we purchased before our trip reimbursed us 100%! Make sure to keep all receipts, you will need them to file the claim with the insurance company. We’ve listed medical facilities below that we would use if we needed medical care in the Cancun area.

Hospitals we would use if we needed medical care:

tip: If you are able, we think it is best to get in a taxi and ask to be taken to the one of the hospitals above. Ambulances can be slow and you are not guaranteed to be taken to one of these hospitals.

We never travel without purchasing travel insurance that includes medical and medical evacuation!
