Calling friends and family can sometimes be a very trying experience in Mexico. Whether you are just trying to contact a friend down the road, or family and friends from Canada or the United States. Here is a quick chart summarizing some of the numbers you will need to know to make phone calls – local, long distance, or international.
Something you will have to get used to quickly here, is how numbers sequences are given. Quite often you will hear numbers in pairs: 99 91 23 45 67. I would recommend learning your phone number in Spanish, it will come in quite handy. I practiced saying mine over and over for a few days and now I actually have a hard time telling somebody our number in English!
