    The number of times I've stayed at Hotel Paradox is now well above double digits, and I continue to hold this "boutique" hotel in high regard (air quotes because Paradox is technically a Marriott-owned hotel).

    YES you can, also the IFE/INE card works, however passport is more "international" since it more official outside of Mexico. There is a different approach with Car rental since they required an ID with your address. Enjoy!
