DRESS

Mexico — Ideal Clothing & Footwear: Comfortable walking shoes with a non-slip sole are recommended. Good climbing shoes if you plan to ascend the pyramids for the great views they offer. Dress for hot, humid weather using clothes made from light, natural fibers (e.g. cotton); sun screen is an essential accessory; insect repellent is a good idea; a hat and sunglasses.

CURRENCY

Mexico — Mexican currency is the New Peso (MXN) divided into 100 centavos. Credit cards are widely accepted, particularly Visa, MasterCard and American Express. Travellers cheques are generally accepted, but cannot be cashed on Sundays. ATMs are the most convenient way to get money. Although some businesses will accept foreign currency it is best to use pesos. Foreign currency can be exchanged at one of many casas de cambio (exchange houses), which have longer hours and offer a quicker service than the banks.

ELECTRICITY

The electrical current is the same as in the US, 60-cycle, 120-volt system.

LANGUAGE

The official language is Spanish, although still spoken are some 66 indigenous languages which come from pre-Hispanic cultures.

TIME
