Research the vet 3 weeks prior
We found out that our regular vet didn’t issue the health certificate we needed. Luckily we had enough time to find one in our area who was able to do the health check up for the certificate. It cost us $75 for each pup.
A lot of friends who go to Mexico often will say “I never get a certificate” and we’re never asked for them when we’re crossing the border. This may be true … but I would not risk it and highly recommend you get a certificate anyway. In our case, we weren’t asked for them going into or returning back from Mexico. Nevertheless the law requires you to have them so we had peace of mind knowing we had them in our possession.

The girls did great. They loved being out with us. The one safety precaution I took was I didn’t let them swim … which was a bit of a bummer …. but the bay was infested with stingrays and I didn’t want to have an accident with the dogs. As it was one of us in the group got stung by one and had to get first aid.
