It costs $4.99 US but you can use XOOM and have as much as $2000 US sent from your bank to Elektra.  Go in with a copy of your passport, I.D. address, Clave number Xoom gives you and have your money instantly 9:00-9:00 7 days a week.  We use it alot if the ATM's are down.  If you are a first time user it may take a day to verify your bank but after that the money is always ready immediately and you will receive a text to your phone telling you it is ready. Your bank will not debit it until after you have picked up the money.  Then when you pick it up, you will receive a text saying the transaction is complete. You can pick it up at Walmart too but lately they do not have the money so we switched to Elektra.  Yes it is cheaper at a ATM but in a pinch, or buying a large purchase, it is great.

I try not to withdraw money on Friday, Saturday, Sunday or Monday... and plan ahead for the last three days of the month and the first three days of the month because people are usually withdrawing big amounts to pay the peso equivalent of their U.S. dollar based rent. Has worked so far but $hit happens (like no electricity or internet connection).
