Help! My SO is leaving for Mexico (work-related) in the AM and needs to know what the deal is with electronics (i.e., laptops, digital camera, cell phone, etc.) w/r/t converters or adapters for power cables and so forth.

I've done the Euro-jaunt and am up on that stuff, but I'm woefully ignorant when it comes to North American voltage/current (whatever) discrepancies. She likely doesn't have time to pick up any converters state-side (save for what we can find at our neighborhood drugstore tomorrow morning before hitting the airport), but will she need to sweat it if she packs all of her power cords for said electronics? She'll be staying in a (more-or-less) major hotel chain in Mexico City. I apologize in advance for sounding like the ugly American (TM) but I just tried googling to (surprisingly) no avail and would hate for her to be stranded powerless in the literal sense. She'll be there two weeks. Thanks in advance, all.
