Instructions for Calling to Cities within Mexico

If you are calling a Mexican city from abroad, first dial the international access code (011 if you're calling from the U.S.), followed by Mexico's country code (52), the appropriate area code, and the local subscriber number. e.g. For an international call to the city of Merida, dial 011-52-999-xxx-xxxx.

For domestic long-distance calls, you must dial 01 before dialing the area code and subscriber number. e.g. For a call from Mexico City to Merida, dial 01-999-xxx-xxxx. For local calls, simply dial the subscriber number. e.g. xxx-xxxx.

Calling cellular phones is a little different. See Instructions for Calling to Cell Phones in Mexico" for instructions.

Instructions for Calling to Cell Phones in Mexico

Calling a Mexico cell phone is just a little trickier than calling a land line. Mexican cellular phones now operate on the Calling Party Pays (CPP) system; whoever initiates a call pays for it. When dialed within its local area, mobile phone numbers use the designated prefix 044. e.g. If calling within area code 33, a Guadalajara mobile phone would be dialed as: 044-33-xxxx xxxx. If you are calling a cell phone in a Mexican area code different from your own, you need to include the prefix 045. e.g. For a call from Guadalajara to a Mexico City mobile phone, dial 045-55-xxxx-xxxx. International calls to Mexican cell phones are dialed like regular international calls. e.g. To call a Mexico City mobile phone from the U.S., dial 011 + 52 + 1 + area code + number.
