Currency, Banks & Exchange

The Mexican Peso is official currency; however, US dollars are accepted almost everywhere. For our European visitors, the Euro is also accepted in many places to facilitate transactions.
You will be able to exchange money in banks, most hotels, airports and money exchange establishments.

Banks in Cancun are generally open Monday through Friday, from 9:00am to 4:00pm and a few are open on Saturdays. You can withdraw money 24-hours a day at ATM´s located in shopping centers and banks.
Money exchange establishments are found throughout the Hotel Zone and the city. They normally have bilingual staff and rates are posted in full view. The exchange establishments in the Hotel Zone are usually open until late hours.

Visa, MasterCard, and American Express credit cards are accepted in most shops, hotels and travel.
