Use the ATMs in town.

No conversion necessary.

If you scroll down I'm sure you will find at least a couple of long discussions on this issue. Summary- what would you pay the exchange and fees to convert Cdn money to US, then pay exchange and fees to convert that into pesos? As Labrat said- best rate is from withdrawing pesos right here in Mexico from your Cdn bank.

Come and enjoy Zihua and have a wonderful vacation!
