Is it neccessary?

DO I need a passport in order to visit Cozumel? I didn't need one

last year but heard I might this year.

No, you don't need one - a drivers' license and an official raised seal birth certificate will work fine, but a passport is way easier.

The new requirement for passport begins in 2006, so you should be ok for now. You may want to consider getting one now should you decide to go again in the future.

The new passport requirement for passengers re-entering the U. S. from Mexico begins on Dec 31, 2006.

However, any other part of the Carribean , Bermuda, Central and South America begins Dec 31, 2005.
