Mexico Money & Currency

Mexico's national currency is the Peso. Most Merchants will accept the United States Dollar and the Canadian Dollar (and/or even the Euro from travelers arriving from countries using those currencies), you should plan to exchange your home-country currency (* Foreign coins are not accepted) for Pesos before you arrive in Mexico or at banks, currency exchanges or automatic teller machines as soon as you arrive. See the Banks and ATMs section under "SERVICES" for locations and maps of local Bucerias banks and ATMs.

Many tourists are confused by Mexican pesos. Hopefully these images help you become familiar with the currency before you arrive.
