Fees depend on your bank and its relationship with the Mex bank. Ask your bank. Independent ATM's usually add an extra fee. If you find one without English you will easily figure out what it says. The amount will be in Pesos so if you want equivalent of $US200 you punch in 2500 for 2500 Pesos.

Most I've seen are in both languages, remember the numbers are pesos not dollars

The local fee varies, mostly about 27 pesos, much less than what your bank's fee is, unless it is associate with a bank in Mexico with zero fees.

Instructions are in Spanish and English.

I don't read Spanish either and have never had a problem using them over the years.

Be sure to inform your bank of the dates you'll be in Mexico so they do not get suspicious and shut off the card.
