19. What is the best way to make telephone calls in Mexico?


The least expensive way to telephone is by using the prepaid LADATEL cards at the phones located all over most towns. The cards come in $30, $50, and $100 peso amounts and can be used for calls within and out of Mexico. In-city calls cost about $.50 centavos a minute. There are ways of using ATT and other carriers. Ask your server for its number via an 800 (or 880) number before leaving home. Finally, there are two cell phone companies in La Paz with pay as you go service and 3G internet service is also available. Most 800 numbers do not work from Mexico.
