Yes; Mendeley will export notes, PDFs, and tags and then Zotero will import them if you choose .bib as the export/import file type.
A word of caution: export/import from Mendeley to Zotero does not preserve Mendeley folders or the date you added a citation to Mendeley. If you want to preserve folders, it is best to export one folder at a time. If that is too time consuming for you or if you have an interest in including the date you added your citations to Mendeley, go to https://forums.zotero.org/discussion/26453/moving-from-mendeley-to-zotero for a more detailed discussion on export/import tools.
