Can I use my credit card? Can I get a cash advance from a bank or ATM?
Yes, Hotel Playa Mazatlan accepts Visa, Mastercard, and American Express. Most other large hotels, shops, and restaurants also accept credit cards. Your purchases will charged in pesos, and your bank will convert the amount back to the equivalent in the local currency where your account is held and charge it to your account.
However, smaller establishments often do not. It is a good idea to carry (or have access to) either cash or traveler’s checks, as well. All banks will perform cash advances from a credit card, and many have ATM machines on site for after hours cash.
