Mexican Customs-Can I Bring Gifts????

Flying in to PV direct from USA. How much trouble am I likely to have at Mexican customs with a couple of surfboards and maybe some clothes, etc, gifts for my daughter who is living in Sayulita?

Should I declare these or just walk on through?

What are the regulations?

Thanks!!!

You won't have any trouble. You are allowed to bring two pieces of sporting equipment (surfboards) as part of your personal luggage. In addition to your personal luggage you are allowed up to 300 dollars in gifts without paying duty.

Should I put everything on the form they give including the surfboards and the clothes?

Thanks!

No, you only need to itemize the things you are paying duty on.
