Too often lumped in with North America, Mexico is a country that stands out on its own.

Has anyone used a pre-paid travel card in the Yucatan?
I will be travelling the Yucatan in April for 2 1/2 weeks and I know that some places do not accept credit cards. Besides, credit card charges and commissions are quite high and I am looking into alternatives.

There are options of using prepaid travel cards that allow you to load any amount in US$ and that can be used at any ATM's, shops etc. I am wondering if they actually work in Mexico so if anyone has used them - can you please feed back on your experience? I don't want to load all the money onto the card and then experience difficulties using it :)

Any feedback is highly appreciated.

Cheers, Gordi

Hi Gordi!
I hope that you dont mind but... are you travelling with others in Yacatan? I will be there at around the same time but I will be travelling alone.
If we happen to be there at the same time, feel like meeting up maybe?
(we can email a bit about ourselves etc... so we can check that neither one of us is a nutter ;0)

if not- I hope you have a great trip!

Veronica :)
