American Express - La Gran Plaza, at Costera 1628 between Parque Papagayo and Diana Glorieta (Mon-Fri 10am-7pm, Sat 10am-3pm; Tel 7/469-1100). Will hold mail, but has awful exchange rates.

Banks and exchange - Banamex (exchange Mon-Fri 9am-5pm), on Costera has the best rates and hours. Nearby there's a casa de cambio, but rates are poor. If you miss the bank, it's far better to head to the hotel zone along Costera, where numerous places offer good rates for US and Canadian dollars and much worse ones for European currencies: try Money Express (Mon-Fri 9am-9pm), opposite the Fiesta Americana hotel.

Buses - Buses to Mexico City leave constantly all day in 5 classes: turistar plus and primera are the ones to go for, as the roomy seating and free drinks of the costly executive-style buses fail to justify the extra cost. Second-class, avoiding the autopista, is very slow.
