Some notes about Pesos

  • The Mexican Peso is the official currency for Mexico.
  • It's abbreviated by the Dollar sign, $, but to distinguish it from American Dollars you might see it either as MX$ or $MN, (MN stands for Mondeca Nacional, or National Currency).
  • Notes are printed in denominations of 20, 50, 100, 200, 500 and 1,000 Pesos.
  • Peso coins are minted in 5, 10, 20 and 50 cents (or centavos as they are called locally).
  • However you're unlikely to spot a coin of less value than a 50 cents.
  • Peso coins in $1, $2, $5 and $10 denominations are more common, and you'll find them very useful, especially for paying tips.
  • Try to carry smaller denomination notes and coins with you if you're shopping away from the big stores. Many traders won't have any change to give you.

How far will your money go in Mexico?

Mexico can be surprisingly expensive if you stay at popular resorts and package tourist areas. If you're adventurous and venture off the beaten path your money will go further too. As a rule, locally owned hotels and restaurants are considerably less expensive than anything targeted specifically at tourists.

Prices can also be affected by season and many hotels raise their prices during busy times of the year. Summer, Christmas and Easter are the peak times for Mexican tourists and areas like Acapulco and Cancún, which attract large numbers of overseas visitors, put their prices up during the high season.

Mexican markets are fun, and save you money too

Local market produce is much cheaper - and often much fresher - than what's on offer in sit-down restaurants. You may need to barter though. If you want to take a taxi agree the price before you get in the vehicle, because many drivers don't use meters. Taxi drivers don't expect tips, although it's customary to tip restaurant waiters between 10 to 15% of your bill, unless service is included.

As a very rough guide you can get by on around £250 per week, and live well on £400.

Is it a good time to buy Pesos?

If you aren't visiting Mexico straight away, you can choose to buy Pesos at a time that's right for you. Use our Historical Exchange Rate tool to help you spot if prices are rising or falling over time..

Have you had your jabs?

Before you go to Mexico, check what you need to get vaccinated against - especially if you intend to spend any time outside the big cities. You'll need to book your jabs in advance, so don't leave them until you're about to fly. Wherever your travels take you in Mexico, don’t forget to pack travel insurance.
