La Manzanilla does not have a bank and only a few businesses accept credit cards or currency other than pesos.
La Manzanilla now has ATM machines! Using an ATM machine is an easy way to get pesos, and you will get the best exchange rate. Be advised that if you wait until a Saturday night to get pesos you might be out of luck, with only a couple of machines in town you might not always get the pesos you need the minute you need them.
Pesos are the currency used in Mexico. Bills come in denominations of $20, $50, $100, $200, $500, and $1,000 pesos. Coins are in denominations of $1, $2, $5, $10, and $20 pesos and 10, 20 and 50 centavos. The exchange rate fluctuates daily.
Credit Card: You should bring a credit card but don’t expect you can use it everywhere. A few La Manzanilla restaurants, the Galeria La Manzanilla and a couple of grocery stores take credit cards. Most business are pesos only.
