AmeX Card use

Hello All! Am I the only one who's had a problem using an AMEX card in Cabo? We were there last December and it seemed as if every business there had "trouble with the lines".

I've written to American Express about the problem but I haven't received a response yet. Anyone else experienced this?

Oft times it is not accepted due to the higher fees. That could have been the problem, and rather than mention that and perhaps loose a sale, it became line problems.

Last time I was in Cabo they charged an extra 6% if you used VISA. They wanted you to use cash so they wouldn't lose anything on the sale. Looks like they've found another way around the problem.
