Although there are currently no restrictions on the use of e-cigarette products in Mexico, there are very strict restrictions regarding the sale, trade, distribution, importation, production, and promotion of any non-tobacco products, including vape products (General Tobacco Control Law, Article 16).
Although these restrictions are in place, a large number of shops can be found in the more populated areas such as Mexico City and Monterrey, along with a small number throughout other areas of the country.
As the importation of international non-tobacco products is restricted, this can also apply to bringing your devices and e-liquids with you in your luggage or on your person. While many people have reportedly brought these into Mexico without issue in the past, there is a chance your equipment could be confiscated so we strongly suggest bringing just enough for your trip, and leave the expensive devices at home.
While the use of e-cigarettes is not restricted throughout the country, they are still relatively foreign in many of the rural areas and may cause issue. As such, we recommend using common courtesy when vaping, especially while inside public venues.
