Cash? Credit Cards? Mexico?



Recommended Posts

I plan on bringing cash for tipping to Mexico- I have 100 in small bills. Will my credit card work down there, too? Someone said to bring more cash for the pharmacy, etc...but I have never been a fan of carrying a ton of cash on me. Will my credit cards work in the pharmacies and stores??

Thanks!

Credit cards do work just fine in the pharmacies. I didn't need mine for my VSG trip, but I did use one on a previous trip with no issues. I hate carrying cash too, but I just took out about $200 and stashed it in all different places so it wasn't like ALL just in my wallet. That way if I lost any single bag, I'd still have some left. I ended up spending almost NONE of it. I think I used a little for tips and I used some on a bottle of Vitamin Water. That was it!

@@JamieLogical Awesome, thank you!!! I was really not wanting to go down there with a ton of cash. I hate carrying it. I am also paranoid, so that may have something to do with it ;)

Woot!

@@shizwiz if you take your cards you should contact UR carriers so that they don't freeze your account thinking that it is a scam or somebody's ripping you off... I have never been to Tijuana but I have been to Rocky Point many times.. And if for any reason you use their banking down there, there will be usually an international 3% fee... Just a heads up..! By the way I think your 100$ in small bills will be fine.. I'm not sure you'll be up to shopping much, lol..

      June 17th is almost here. Picked up everything I need for my after surgery needs. After work will go home and finish packing a light overnight bag to make sure I don't forget anything. And the final countdown begins. Not nervous at all just looking forward to the call for my arrival time.

      I am 19 days post op and I am still struggling to drink the fluids. I am not even able to drink the protein shakes their now nasty to me , I tried the protein bars & it didn’t end well. I have chest pains & I can barely eat. I am weak & my mouth is always dry, and feeling nauseous. Can anyone provide any advise. At least I doing the vitamins. Recently my chest & stomach have a burning sensation.

        I had a very difficult time finding protein shakes that tasted okay and didn't make me sick. I ended up drinking FairLife Core Power protein shakes. I love the chocolate (tastes like chocolate milk to me). I like to blend it with some ice and PB2 powder (or real PB) to give the smoothie consistency. I also found that if I put Panera's Turkey Vegetable soup through the blender, I could eat it. I survived off those two things. My chest pains were from the gas, which was incredibly bad and took so much longer than I expected to resolve. I'd definitely stay away from bars or anything solid until you've conquered liquids. I'd love to tell you the dry mouth will get better soon, but it didn't for me for a very long time (months). The plus to that was that I drank a ton of water. The good new is I suspect you are close to the light at the end of the tunnel on this first and hardest part of the journey. It gets SO much easier after this part.

        I am 2 days post-op and really struggling with everything. My depression isn't helping any. I couldn't even finish one shake today and swallowing meds is just excruciating.

      I am a week post op and I honestly feel like crap! I keep feeling so nauseous and I can’t get my self to drink a good amount of water. I honestly feel very regretful today. When does it get better?

        By the third week you will feel some relief. Don't push yourself too much with quantity that first week. I just made sure to keep sipping and walking which helped me feel better.

        I hear you. This has been the hardest day for me so far (2 days post-op).
