Does vacation money spent in Mexico count as out of state money spent?

It depends -

Some state collect a "use" tax which is like a sales tax on items purchased outside the state (include those purchased in a foreign country) that you take back into the state. However, if you just spent the money in Mexico on items like meals or entertainment, then you would not have to report any amount related to your Mexican vacation.
