Payment Method and Booking

Money/Credit cards


In the Yucatan Peninsula, cash works very well, as does the dollar. Credit cards, whilst being accepted in a lot of places, add a lot of hassle and cost to your trip, IMHO. Try to remember that you are going on an overhead diving course, and that anything which adds to your stress will take away from the mental resources you will need for the course, so make your life as easy as possible. Therefore, paying with cards all the time can be problematic. Connections are not always open, and the bank charges the operator a large fee. Therefore, do not be surprised to find small and large operators adding between 10% and 15% to your bill if you pay on credit card. So things here work well with cash!!  Travellers checks work well, and are safe. Bring ready access to cash, whatever you’re going to do. Crime here is minimal, and as in any place in the world, if you are sensible, and look after what is yours, you will have no problem. Hotel safe’s are good, leaving your wallet in a bar is bad. Duh.


Banks


If you need to use a bank, be prepared to queue for at least an hour. There are numerous ATM machines, and so if you bring plastic with a pin number for withdrawing cash, you should be fine, and no waiting. There is a transaction charge of 2 - 3%. You are able to withdraw up to $350 a day. If you are uncertain, talk to your bank before you come here.


Exchange Rates


The average exchange rate is currently 10.5 mexican pesos to a dollar. In Playa del Carmen and elsewhere, the exchange houses are very numerous, easy to use, and very competitive in price. They accept cards, travelers checks, and hard currency. Exchanging your money at the hotels and the airport is very expensive and not worth it. They are taking advantage of you. The exchange bureaus are better. IMHO.
