Cur­rency: The na­tional cur­rency of Mex­ico is the Mex­i­can Peso. Prices through­out the coun­try are com­monly shown with a dol­lar-sign ($) in front of the Peso amount and notes come in 20, 50, 100, 200, 500, 1000. Tips are pre­ferred in the lo­cal cur­rency, and for­eign coins are not an ac­cept­able form of pay­ment, as not even the banks will ac­cept them.

Credit Cards: Most busi­nesses will ac­cept Visa and Master­card and rarely Amer­i­can Ex­press. Smaller shops and res­tau­rants, cabs, buses and pri­vate drivers and tour guides pre­fer pay­ment in cash, and lo­cal cur­rency. ATMs are widely avail­able.
