Local information

Money – Mexican’s currency is the Mexican peso (MXN). Credit cards - especially Visa and Mastercard - are widely accepted in restaurants, bars, cafés and shops. American Express and Diners Club cards are less commonly accepted. There are plenty of cash machines (also known as cashpoints or ATMs) available in and around Queretaro.

VAT - Value-added tax (VAT) is a 16% sales tax levied on most goods and services except basic food items. Restaurants must, by law, include VAT in their menu prices.

Electricity - Mexico appliances are fitted with two-pin plugs that can be connected to the Mexican mains supply through wall sockets. Mexican power sockets deliver an average voltage of 110 V, although in practice this can be slightly higher. To charge devices that are compatible with this voltage, simply buy the appropriate adapter from the airport or from high street shops. If your device runs on a lower voltage, however, then you will also need a converter to stop it from over-heating. Even if your country uses lower voltages, remember to check whether your device is dual-voltage (look for the 110-240 V notations) before buying a converter.

Telephone - If you're visiting Queretaro from abroad, don't forget that the Mexico dialing code is +52 and to check your own country's code before you travel.
