Mexico Area Codes


Beginning in 1999, Mexico began converting its phone numbers to a uniform seven-digit format (previously numbers ranged from 5-7 digits). While the system may take years to fully implement, here’s an easy way to make local calls while in Mexico: add the appropriate number of digits from the city’s area code in order to make all local calls contain seven digits. The major exceptions are Mexico City, Guadalajara and Monterrey; here all local calls require eight digits.

Example: when in Acapulco, a number that appears as 74 41 23 45 67 would be dialed as 1234567 from local landline or cell to a local landline; 7441234567 from cell to cell and 0447441234567 from landline to cell... so you need to figure out if the phone you're calling is a landline or a cell.


Note: When calling from the U.S. or Canada, first dial 011-52 when dialing a land line and 011-521 when dialing a cell, followed by these area codes and local number.
