MX banks won’t exchange dollars!?!
We have had a home in Alamos, Sonora for 18 years. Recently the local banks and those in Navajoa stopped exchanging dollars for pesos unless you have an account and then they’ll only do less than $200.
Is this just a local thing, or have you heard about this in other places? I’m guessing it’s got to do with the slide in the peso, but it’s hell on tourism and a big pain for those of us without an account. We closed our account years ago over an idiotic dispute and in order to open an account now one needs an FM3.
I’m just wondering if this is a local thing or nationwide?
