El Codo just alerted me to the following updates to the Mexico entry allowances.
“Duty-free allowance is a tax exemption granted by the Mexican Government to a national or foreign passenger for certain merchandise he is bringing in Mexico.
Persons that reside in the north border are allowed to import merchandise for up to $150.00 USD.*
- During holiday periods –Easter, Summer, Christmas, New Year-, passengers may import up to $500.00 USD.*
Passengers entering Mexico by air or a maritime port may import up to $500.00 USD.”
