Traveling to Cancun

Symposia Medicus has the pleasure of hosting several of their continuing medical and nursing education conferences in Cancun, Mexico. Symposia Medicus offers over 35 conferences annually on Pediatrics, Emergency Medicine, Obstetrics/Gynecology, Women’s Health, Primary Care, and Neonatal Care/Fetal Monitoring. Symposia Medicus is sure to have your healthcare specialty covered!

When the medical conference not in session, CME & CNE attendees will enjoy the breathtaking tropical beauty and rich cultural heritage that is Cancun! From snorkeling and scuba diving off the white sandy beaches to exploring the Mayan ruins of Chichen Itza and Tulum, Cancun is the ultimate travel destination.

To get the most out of your conference attendance and your visit to Cancun, here are three tips to prepare you for your trip:

1. Pack comfortably for the weather AND for the conference room – Cancun temperatures in February range from the low 80’s during the day to the high 60’s during the evening. In the conference rooms, temperatures can be on the cooler side, so bring a sweater or light jacket to wear when in session. Formal attire is not required anywhere in the hotel or during our conference.

Bonus packing tip: Pack prescription drugs, jewelry, and other valuables in your carry-on bag.

2. Don’t buy more Mexican pesos than you think you will spend – When you convert unused pesos back into dollars at the end of your trip, you do not get as much for the sale. Also, banks at the airport may not change pesos back to dollars. You may spend your remaining pesos at the airport’s duty free shops.Beach and Exterior

Due to recent local regulations, the acceptance of U.S. dollars in cash is now restricted across Mexico. All payments made with credit/debit cards remain unaffected. Settle your accounts and other expenses with a credit card or in Mexican pesos.

3. Prepare travel documents ahead of time! – Secure all of your necessary travel documents (i.e. passports) and confirm they are not expired or will be expiring. Many countries require that your U.S. passport have as much as 6 months validity remaining for entry. If you live in the United States and are not a U.S. citizen, we recommend that you check with U.S. Immigration regarding your particular situation.
