Because Mexicans consider higher education a luxury rather than a birthright, there is no formal network of student discounts and programs. Most Mexican students travel with their families rather than with other students, so student discount cards are not commonly recognized.
The U.S. Department of State offers information designated specifically for students traveling abroad: www.studentsabroad.state.gov.
The website www.hostels.com/mexico offers a list of hostels in Acapulco, Cancún, Guadalajara, Guanajuato, Mérida, Mexico City, Oaxaca, Playa del Carmen, Puerto Escondido, Puebla, San Cristobal las Casas, San Miguel de Allende, and Zacatecas, among other locations.
