Mexico’s currency is the Mexican Peso. ATMs are widely available, and Master Card and Visa are widely accepted by businesses catering to tourists. Smaller stores will require local currency for transactions. For up-to-date information on the local conversion rate, please visit a reputable currency converter website such as OANDA which also offers an app for smartphones.

Dry season lasts November to May, followed by significant rain from December to April. September sees the highest humidity in Mexico City. Coastal areas tend to be hot and humid, while central Mexico is more temperate.
