    Yes, Tina, a passport is required to fly into Cancun. Not sure if you are a U.S. citizen, but here is what is says on the U.S. Department of State website: "Since March 1, 2010, all U.S. citizens – including children – have been required to present a valid passport or passport card for travel beyond the “border zone” into the interior of Mexico. The “border zone” is generally defined as an area within 20 to 30 kilometers of the border with the U.S., depending on the location. Regardless of the destination in Mexico; however, all U.S. citizens age 16 or older must present a valid U.S. passport book or passport card to re-enter the U.S. by land. A passport book is required to return to the United States via an international flight." http://travel.state.gov/travel/cis_pa_tw/cis/cis_970.html

    U.S. dollars are widely accepted in Cancun, though most prices are quoted in pesos. Smaller items will generally be offered in pesos, while more pricey things like tours and water activities may be quoted in dollars. Note you'll usually get your change (if any) in pesos, so expect some generous rounding-up on the part of the vendor. Best advice? Change some dollars into pesos for some discretionary spending money so you have the local currency in your pocket for when you venture out of your resort.

    Canvassed our Mexico contacts on Twitter (@awayblog) and they all agreed that you shouldn't see any significant increase in prices over this period. They did all recommend reservations for the busier days/dates and fancier spots. As for actual prices, you should probably expect to pay what you would in U.S. resort-town eateries unless you get off the gringo trail and search out something really local.
