Foreign currency exchange

Good morning, I am finding it difficult to do foreign currency exchange in the States prior to our visit to Zihua next week. Is there someplace in Zihua that is recommended for currency exchange?


Well first off banks in Mexico really don't want your American money. However both Intercam banks will exchange money with a passport.

The best way is to do ATM's. And to get a no fee ATM card like Charles Schwab has.

Remember if an ATM offers you an exchange rate refuse it, to get the better REAL RATE!

ATMs are quite yesterday
Check out Wise ( formerly TransferWise, Remitly, et. al.) for longer stays or larger transfers
Every peso counts!
