Money Exchange
There is no need to make change before you get into Mexico if you have a sufficient allowance for your ATM withdrawals. The best way to get pesos is through an ATM machine which gives you the best exchange rate and most services do not charge fees from the Mexico end. If they do, the machine will state so. Most machines have a maximum limit of 3000 pesos per withdrawal but you can make several withdrawals in succession up to your card's limit. Some machines go up to 5000 pesos per withdrawal. You will find machines in the airports.
