What To Pack for a Trip To Mexico

Looking for the best Mexico packing guide for women? Look no further. I know you’ve heard that “Paris is always a good idea”, but if you’re like me and would rather be on a beach somewhere, with a spicy marg in hand, I’d argue Mexico is actually, always, without a doubt, the best idea there is. From the trendy shores of Tulum, the classic resorts and rocky coastlines in Cabo and the colorful and vibrant streets of Oaxaca, you can’t go wrong! When it comes to what to pack for Mexico, you want outfits as vibrant as the setting! My favorite Mexico outfit inspo are always flowy light-weight fabrics, chic resort wear, colorful cocktail dresses for evenings out and obviously, plenty of Mexico ready swimwear!!!

What to Wear in Mexico: Day Party in Tulum Vibes

Tulum is a little less resortey and a little more “sceney” than the west coast beach towns in Mexico. Think of Tulum as the “LA” of Mexico. From ritzy day clubs to DJ’s in the jungle, this is where you go all out beachy glamour! There is no such thing as “over-dressed” in Tulum, so chic it up!
