We have gotten used to withdrawing cash from the HSBC machine here in Ixtapa over the years. Of course the usual withdrawal fee, but....this year and additional 5.5% “exchange” fee added on. Is this something new? Are all the banks doing it? Santander, Banco Mexico? This is quite a big jump in fees from our past experience. (A boring topic, I know; but at least not about Trumstper)

Here in Mexico the bank charges SHOULD be coming down as new legislation takes effect thanks to our Presidente López Obrador and his political party Morena. CitiBanamex has been robbing me for years yet for some stupid reason I still do business with them (because they're the closest bank to my home, I guess). But if you want to be treated right AND get excellent service I highly recommend Intercam. They have a new branch in Zihuatanejo by the Cinemex movie theaters. Is that who you were referring to?
