Removing the SIM card will guarantee there is no roaming charges.

Is the phone unlocked? You can replace it with a Mexico Sim.

Public wifi? Hope you are using a VPN to prevent data eavesdropping.

Hotel wifi? I find it's useless in the evening with countless guests watching video's. Consider standing by your hallway door for better reception.
