A deep dive on pesos

The Mexican peso has evolved from the 15th century Spanish dollar, and was considered legal tender in the US until 1857. In 1993, the Bank of Mexico introduced the nuevo peso (new peso) to help combat years of inflation and devaluation. 1,000 old pesos became 1 new peso, with the ‘nuevo’ dropped in 1996.

More info about pesos

The most commonly used bills for Mexican pesos are the $20, $50, $100, $200, $500 and $1000. It’s a good idea to try to hold on to small change as sometimes it will be difficult to get larger bills broken. Explore the exchange rate history of pesos against the dollar, or head to our Travelex hub for top tips and insider guides to the nation.

Bill size

I would like the ability to control the maximum size bill. A 100 Euro bill is hard to spend.

Harry

My Travelex card worked well when there…

My Travelex card worked well when there was money on it, but I was never able to reload the card via the app, which made it challenging. (I also had to reload it via the website on an iPad each time, which still worked but wasn't as quick and easy as the app would have been.)
