Currency Suggestion

CASH
Single dollar bills are extremely helpful when traveling to Mexico. Consider taking at least $100 in dollar bills (per couple) because they are perfect for additional gratuities should you choose to tip, and they are helpful in negotiating in the shopping areas. If you want to exchange money into local currency you can, but it is not necessary to do so..

CREDIT CARDS
The major credit cards—Visa, MasterCard, and American Express are accepted in most large cities and tourist areas across Mexico. If you plan to use credit cards, it’s best to contact and notify your banks and/or card issuer that you will be traveling outside the United States. Some credit cards charge a foreign transaction fee for purchases made in foreign currency. Call the number on the back of your card or visit your personal online account to learn about your card’s benefits.
