Students are responsible for arranging and paying for their own travel to and from Merida. Travel information should be provided to program administrators prior to departure.
The hotel will be open for student arrivals on December 26, 2014. Students must check out of the hotel by January 8, 2015. Classes will take place from December 27, 2014 through January 7, 2015.
Students are advised to arrange flights into the Merida airport. In the past, many students have flown into Merida and flown out of Cancun. Cancun/Playa del Carmen is approximately 4 hours, by bus, from Merida. Students wishing to travel to Cancun/Playa del Carmen upon the conclusion of the Program, should easily be able to arrange flights out of Cancun
A U.S. Department of State "Consular Information Sheet:" on Mexico is available on the Department of State's Website, see travel.state.gov/travel/. This is a U.S. government summary overview of information concerning Mexico for U.S. travelers. Please check it periodically for updates. In the unlikely event that Mexico is declared an "area of instability" by the U.S. government before or during the trip, or if the U.S. issues a "travel warning," students will be permitted to withdraw from the program and will receive a full refund of moneys paid to MC Law.
The Yucatan generally, and Merida particularly, is a safe and stable environment for U.S. travelers, and MC Law does not expect that the area around Merida will be declared an area of instability or that such a travel advisory will be issued.
