Bank Machine?

I am wondering if there is a bank machine (ATM) within Rincon (I'd heard there wasn't)? If not, can anyone tell me where the closest one could be found?

I just responded to your other post, but wanted to answer you here as well...

There are three ATMs in Guayabitos:

1) Pemex Station (east side of Hwy. 200 between Guayabitos and La Penita

2) Retorno Laureles (between Playa Linda Condominiums and Villas Buena Vida Hotel)

3) Crico Mercado (east side of Avenida del Sol Nuevo, at Jacarandas)

Things change, but these were all working at the end of last season.

We have just come back from Rincon Guayabitos. Had the best time ever. Sad news when we came home,. Our debit card had been used in PVR 2 days after we arrived home. They withdrew our max.( $ 1000.00 ) using 5 different transactions. Please be very aware, as we did everything we could to have this not happen to us. B and S

Unfortunately, we have had several incidences with ATM scams in our area this year. Contact your credit card company. Let them know what happened and they should be able to help you correct the problem.

Friends have told me to avoid the ATM at Villas Buena Vida- #2 on Allyson's first post.

The Pemex one is a Banamex machine and sometimes gives me cash - sometimes not. I use a foreign bank card- CIBC.

The Bank in La Penita- gives me cash on certain days as well.

Last week I tried the Pemex, Bank in La Penita ones and couldn't get money so drove to the Mega shopping centre and got cash there- Ok if you have a car as we do.

Next year I plan to bring a few travellers cheques as a back up.

I was just there but agree to be weary using them do to the scams ..for sure hide your pin when you take money out. I was also told not to use the one ATM mentioned above and went to it one day adn it was out of service so that worried me enough not to use it. probably safer to use ones in busier areas like banks or malls is my guess.

Thank you for the heads up. We have used our bank cards for the last few years, and more so since they don't like travelers cheques any more. So put a call into our banker today and we will travel with pesos this year and be ready to tip as soon as we arrive.

There is a new one which I now use at the new Pemex station by the water tower- in the Happy Go convenience store at the back of the store.

It is a HSBC machine and charges 22 pesos for a withdrawal. The Bancomer one at the bank in La Penita charged me 69.5 pesos- that is in addition to the bank fee in Canada.
