In almost all the places found on our different tour itineraries, US dollars and other foreign currencies are not accepted.
No problem . . .
There are ATMs and money exchange businesses in all the major cities and bigger towns throughout México.
Some exceptions of locations in México where your home country’s currency may be used might be at the beach resort areas on our Best of México & Beach Vacation Combo Tours. However, even at these places, it would be best to use Mexican Pesos as you will most likely get a better price on the goods and services you are purchasing rather than using your own country’s currency.

Remember . . .
Cash is King in Mexico. And the cash should be in Mexican Pesos.
