The first step in preparing for your trip to Mexico is to RSVP here.
Once you’ve reserved your spot, there are just a few more things you need to know.
Each vision trip guest will need to book their flight in and out of Mexico City on the first and last days of the trip. If you’re uncertain about your flight time, feel free to run it by us and we’ll be happy to help. Once you’ve booked your flight, please send your flight numbers to Ellen Paik at [email protected] so we can make sure you arrive safely.
As a group, we’ll be staying at the Four Seasons in Mexico City. Each vision trip guest will need to call the hotel to book their room through the New Story room block. Just let them know you’re with us to receive a discount on your room cost.
The Four Seasons will provide complimentary transportation to and from the airport for all guests in our room block. When you book your hotel, just let them know your flight itinerary and they’ll be waiting for you at the airport in Mexico City. A member of our team will also be there to welcome you, to ensure you have no issues in reaching your destination.
Be sure to make sure you have a current passport that doesn’t expire for the entirety of your trip length, as you’ll need it to enter and exit the country. If you don’t have a passport, we suggest applying immediately, as it typically takes 6-8 weeks to receive yours once you’ve applied.
You’ll need to make a copy of each person in your party’s passport and keep them with you or in a safe place for the duration of the trip.
What to Bring
Mexico City stays comfortably warm during the summertime, and we recommend bringing modest, comfortable summer clothes for the time we’ll be spending there. When we go to visit New Story communities, we’ll be stepping into warmer climates, sometimes exceeding 100 degrees Fahrenheit. We recommend bringing comfortable, athletic clothing and closed toe shoes, such as sneakers or tennis shoes, for these excursions.
We recommend always keeping bug spray and sunscreen in your suitcase, but if you forget, no worries! We’ll always have some on hand.
We’ll be carrying cash for the group, so we only recommend carrying pesos if you plan to spend time in Mexico City on your own. Even still, most places take card. You will not need American dollars at any point.
Sharing the News
We’re all excited about these trips and we know it will be very difficult to keep the location a secret. You are welcome to share that you’re going on a trip with New Story, but please refrain from sharing any information about the location, using any geotags, or mentioning the 3D printed community.
