While Mexico City is located at a high altitude, both Cancun and Guadalajara are near sea level. Take a day or two to adjust to the altitude when arriving in Mexico City to avoid altitude sickness.

Accommodation and Booking:
All three cities offer a range of accommodations to suit different budgets. It’s wise to book your accommodations and any specific activities or tours in advance, especially during peak seasons.

Pack lightweight clothing for Cancun's tropical climate, and warmer clothing for Mexico City. A good quality sunscreen, hat and some beachwear are must-haves for Cancun. Don't forget comfortable walking shoes for sightseeing tours in all three cities.

Health and Safety:
Make sure to have travel insurance that includes medical cover. Stay hydrated, especially in Cancun's humid climate. Be cautious while using public transport and avoid isolated areas at night.
