Before you fly to Mexico

Be prepared

With so many things to think about, getting ready for a holiday can be a bit of a juggling act. But by ordering your Pesos online before you travel, you can tick one big thing off your list.

Exchange rates can change so waiting until the last minute can limit your choice and arriving with some local cash means no searching for ATMs or banks.

Collect your Pesos when you like

With Click & Collect you can order Pesos online, then pick them up during your next shop from over 400 Tesco stores. You can select the best location to pick them up when you place your order, and you can even have your Pesos delivered to your home for free on all orders of £500 or over.

It’s worth remembering that exchange rates can change throughout the day and will vary depending on whether you are buying in store, online or over the phone.

Useful information about Mexico and the Peso (MXN)

Currency Denominations

  • 1 Peso (MX$) is made up of 100 Centavos (¢)
  • Centavos come in coins of 50, $1, 2$, $5 and $10
  • Pesos come in banknotes of MX$20, MX$50, MX$100, MX$200, MX$500, and MX$1000
  • Coins below 50¢ are rare to find these days, and many shops don’t handle small change

Spending and exchanging Pesos in Mexico

While debit and credit cards are popular in the UK and other countries, some businesses in Mexico still prefer cash and in some cases don’t accept cards at all.

It’s worth keeping a supply of Peso coins and notes handy for when you need to buy essentials like bottled water or transport.

You can spot a local exchange bureau by keeping an eye out for the phrase, “Casa de Cambios,” which is literally translated as “house of changers.”

Facts about Mexican ATM machines

ATMs are popular in Mexico, although you may be charged a transaction fee when withdrawing your Pesos.

Withdrawal fees are typically around MX$1.50-MX$3.00 per transaction, but some machines charge no fee at all.

ATMs can commonly be found at banks and supermarkets. Helpfully, they typically display instructions in English.
