If you need to make any phone calls while in Mexico buy an international phone card (like a Latadel card) at any market and use that from your hotel or pay phone. The phone system in Mexico is unregulated and if you use your home calling card (ie Sprint, AT&T, etc) you might end up with a surprisingly hefty phone bill. Making calls from pay phones without a Mexican phone card can cost up to $40 US just to CONNECT the call. It's a totally unregulated system. So beware. If you need to make a call from your hotel room make sure you talk rates with the front desk first. Also make sure you buy the phone card once you're in Mexico. My friend bought one in the States and was unable to use it down there.

Don't accept help with your shopping. We made the mistake of asking someone and she cost us more by taking us only to places where she would receive commission/goods. Pay cash and you are able to negociate for 15% or more. Visit at least 5 shops before you decide and you will be fine.
