... if true Valerie, morally it's a tough call to go to a small town ATM and pull say, $20,000 pesos or more out at a crack to pay for a pricy rental property and have plenty left over for the month to eat out and shop. Half a dozen folks do that and there wouldn't be much left for the rest of the community till the machine was restocked.. which could be a number of days down the road.
Most Mexicans using 'national' cards likely pay a much smaller fee (although I could be wrong) and they often take out smaller sums of $1000 or $2000 pesos at a time. I can't see them paying $162 pesos for a $1000 pesos withdrawal.
... don't know what the answer is Valerie, but somehow I wouldn't clean out a small town machine to the detriment of the remainder of the community....but that's just me.
