Spending USD in Mexico

Jump to last reply

My friend travels to Mexico frequently with her adult daughter to buy various things for her import shop in the US. She told me that it is impossible (as far as her experience went) to spend or change USD outside the airport. Due to money laundering/drug trade, the US dollar is not accepted anyplace. She advised changing any dollars at an exchange in the airport (Mexico City) and then using ATMs for cash after that. Has anybody else had this same experience?
