Are the old ones still usable? For how long?

Of course. The banks will be withdrawing older bills from circulation. I haven’t seen a limit on their use announced yet.

What about the 500 pesos Rob? Should I exchange all of mine when I come down in November?

As long as it isn't one that's been withdrawn from circulation you should be able to spend it just fine. Please see the information about our currency on my LOCAL INFO > Money page.

We were just talking about that. We will start in November making an effort to spend our older bills first. We normally bring a lot back with us, as my husband is convinced the peso value may crash back to ten like it was when we first started coming down. :-)

I had some old Mexican banknotes- when the denominations were like 10,000 and 50,000.
Before they stripped the last 3 zeros.
They were still useable earlier this year.
