It would need to be empty, have the valve open, and it needs to have the cover off. It isn't good for your tank, so you might as well just rent a tank at the dive shop there, if that was what you were thinking. It is expensive to ship a scuba tank as well.

Can you scuba dive in Mexico without a license?

Theoretically if you had your own gear, including tank of air, you can dive anywhere that's got water but it's not recommended unless you know the dive site. If you don't have a licence, a dive centre should not allow you to dive. They can take you out on a "discover scuba diving" dive. This will be to a maximum of 12m. If you are qualified but have forgotten or lost your cert card, they can look you up on the pro website. If not qualified with at least PADI scuba diver cert, no one should let you dive. If they do, I would think twice about the dive operation you are using.

What is the best way to keep water out of a scuba tank?

The best way to be sure that water does not enter your scuba dive tank when diving, is to never allow it to be completely be emptied of air pressure. Always plan to leave at least 1-2Mpa (10-20 bars) left in them to ensure that moisture does not enter. If for some reason, the scuba dive tank pressure should be completely exhausted, it is important to immediately close the valve to keep moisture out. When bleeding the air from your scuba tank, be sure to bleed the air slowly, as quick bleeding may cause internal condensation.
