    We are from Canada and will be having a legal ceremony in Los Cabos, Mexico next year and are trying to figure out the whole apostille thing.

    I found out that in Canada we don't apostille but instead have to notarize our birth certificates with a lawyer/notary.

    What I'm wondering is if we also have to further "authenticate" our birth certificates, and also if we have to translate them into spanish? And if so what is the order to do this?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

        You need to find out from your specific resort specifically what they require from you...as different resorts within Mexico have different requirements. For example some resorts don't require you to do anything whereas others (like mine), make you go through this long process. Here is the link to the thread that I started with information. I hope this helps!
