9/14/09 - New Mexican law on accepting US Dollars

September 14, the Mexican Government passed a new law, which goes into effect regarding the used of US Dollars in the form of cash when making purchases in Mexico. Fortunately credit cards, debit cards, travelers checks and non-American (USA) currency is not affected by this new law.

The most noticeable differences for customers will be as follows:

  • Hotels and currency exchange booths and local banks will only be able to change a maximum of $1,500 US per person, per month into Mexican Pesos. Prior to September 14th there was no limit.
  • Business will only be able to accept a maximum of $100 US Dollars per transaction but the number of transactions per customer is not restricted.
  • Certain businesses may not be able to, or may choose not to, accept US Dollars for any purchase at all. This may include restaurants and shops.

For example, if a customer wishes to purchase an excursion that costs $125 US Dollars, $100 can be accepted in US Dollars and the rest must be paid with credit card of Mexican Pesos.
