If you are preparing for your next vacation to Mexico and have always used traveler’s checks in the past, please remember that in the summer of 2014 Royal Resorts stopped accepting US dollar traveler’s checks.

This policy change is due to important banking sector reforms in the United States affecting financial institutions in Mexico and many other countries. Mexican banks and bureau de change are no longer processing travelers checks in US dollars.

Traveler’s checks in Canadian dollar, Euro, British pounds and Swiss Francs are not affected by this ruling.

As alternatives to US dollar traveler’s checks, there are ATMs in the resorts and at all local banks and Visa, Master Card and American Express are widely accepted. You may pay your resort bill at check out with Visa, Master Card and American Express credit cards, debit cards and cash payments in Mexican pesos or US dollars.
