This document uses some conventional models to measure the information content about inflation expectations in Mexico’s term structure of interest rates (TSIR). It is found that in the period 1996-2000, associated with more flexible financial markets and flexible exchange rate regime, is when the TSIR contains information regarding this variable. This information contributes to marginally improve the predictive power of ARMA models usually employed with this purpose specially outside the sample.// En este trabajo se utilizan algunos modelos tradicionales para medir la información que contiene la estructura temporal de tasas de interés (ETTI) en México respecto a expectativas de inflación. Se encuentra que en el periodo que inicia en 1996, el cual se asocia a una mayor flexibilidad de los mercados financieros y al abandono del régimen de tipo de cambio fijo, la ETTI contiene información de esta variable. Esta información permite mejorar marginalmente el poder de predicción, sobre todo fuera de la muestra, respecto a los pronósticos de modelos ARMA usados con frecuencia para ese fin.
