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 available in most cities and towns and are the most convenient way to get money, but for safety reasons they should only be used during business hours. Although most 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.

Terminal Transfers

Passengers in possession of an electronic reservation password, ticket and/or boarding pass are transported free of charge on the Air Train between terminals one and two. The general public have to take the public transportation bus between the terminals at a nominal charge. Both services are available 24 hours a day.
