Travel to Mexico from the US

Explorer C

My 7 year old daughter and I are traveling to Cabo San Lucas in May. I am trying to understand the travel requirements for COVID. Do you have to be tested to enter Mexico regardless of vaccination status?

I don't think you ever had to have a covid test to enter Mexico, it is required to return back to the US.

We just got back from Mexico.  You don't need a covid test for entering Mexico.  However you will need a negative covid test within 24 hours before enter back in the US.  Usually they will offer covid tests at the airport for a fee.
