Bargaining

It's worth asking if a discount is available on room rates, especially if it's low season or you're staying more than two nights. In markets some haggling is expected. Unmetered taxis will often shave some pesos off the initial asking price.

Money

You can use the ATM at Banamex, a block east of the plaza on the main drag.
