Travel Tips

Money Exchange

The peso is the legal tender in Mexico. The banks and money exchanges offices offer competitive rates and are open from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM


Spanish is the official language in Mexico. Usually, personnel in the Riviera Maya's hotels, shops, restaurants, and tourist industries speak or understand English. If you know some Spanish, do not hesitate to try it, it's the best way to make new friends among Mexico's warm, friendly people.


The easiest way to get around Mexico's Riviera Maya is by taxi or local bus. Fares are low, but they increase after 10:00 PM Tipping taxi drivers is customary.


Most stores in Playa del Carmen and the Mayan Riviera are open Monday through Saturday from 10:00 AM to 10:00 PM If you plan to buy silver, it is very important to make sure that the back of each piece is stamped with .925 (sterling silver) or .720 (20% less sterling silver).

Local Cuisine

The most common dishes along the Caribbean Coast of Mexico include fish and sea food, of course. There are many restaurants offering international and typical Mexican cuisine. If you are not familiar with Mexican salsas and spices, just make sure not to have a hot surprise.


Most hotels have water filters and purified tap water. Ice cubes are also safe to use. And you can always buy a bottle of purified water in the tobacco shop of your hotel, to take with you when you go out.

Restaurants, Bars and Discotheques

Travelers should consider making reservations at popular restaurants in order to be secure availability. There is a wide choice of discotheques where you can enjoy yourself.


It is not advisable to carry all your cash and credit cards, or plane tickets, passport and personal documents, when you go out. Take only what is necessary, and keep the rest in a safe in your hotel. Mexico is a very safe destination, but losing money or documents is never a pleasant experience.
