For stays of less than 180 days, no visa is required for the citizens of 65 countries, including the US, the UK, all Schengen-area countries of the EU and most of those in Latin America. Citizens of other nations may apply for a 180-day visa at any Mexican consulate. The peso, at 12.91 to the dollar as of mid-May 2014, comes in denominations of 20, 50, 100, 500 and 1000, and in coins from 50 cents up to 10 pesos. While most ATMs accept foreign bank cards, many shops and businesses do not, so it is wise to keep cash on hand. Local tap water, though potable, is not recommended for drinking as it contains microbes to which visitors must become accustomed over time. In the world’s largest consumer country of bottled water, those who do drink it risk contracting “Montezuma’s revenge”. The legal drinking age is 18, three years lower than that of the US. While the most popular alcoholic beverage in Mexico is beer, of which there is a wide variety, other local favourites are tequila and mezcal, a smoky-flavoured liquor distilled from the agave plant.
