Cash vs. Card

Hey Everyone,

I was just curious if a lot of restaurants/grocery stores accept debit/credit cards or if we should expect to be paying for most everything in cash. Thanks for any input.

Most of the bigger restaurants take cards (tips we leave as cash), Bodega and Sams Club etc (Sams charges % more to use card and they show you the difference) and the bigger stores all on cards. La Cava in ixtapa and Zihua good prices for liquor and take cards. Pharmacies not sure about cards but I would say yes. Especially the really common ones Farma Similares and Farma Pronto etc.

Smaller places likely no cards

When shopping at La Comer, I use a debit card. Everywhere else we use cash. Get the max at an ATM (but not after dark) and have a great time in Zihua.
