CURRENCY

Currently one Mexican Peso is = to 38p sterling. We believe the Post Office offer the best exchange rates and also offer buy back without commission. However, please be aware this is a fluctuating currency almost on a daily basis.

EXIT TAX

Although controversial all visitors to Mexico are required to pay a departure tax currently around 1335MXN Pesos =£66 sterling; it is preferable to pay in Mexican Pesos. As Mexico operates a closed currency you are not permitted to take Pesos out of the country. We suggest you seek the best exchange rate nearer departure, however, Pesos may be obtained at the arrival airport, which we are informed offers the best exchange rate.

ELECTRICITY

Power In Mexico is similar to the USA at 110 volts using the flat pin plugs.
