Peso rate from ATM at GP for British Travellers?

I know it's a long shot but would any British travellers know the rate that they got when using the ATM at the GP recently? I have called our bank who will charge 2.75% on every withdrawal. We would like to use the ATMs in the lobby's but wondered what the rates would be? We can get 17.97 pesos to the £1 at the moment getting small notes in the UK so would the rate be much lower from the ATMs? I would prefer to take half of our cash with us and leave half safe in the bank account until we need it. Any help would be appreciated :-)

The ATMs at the Palladium have very good rates and vary depending upon the daily rate at the Banco Santander Serfin.

If this is an ATM affiliated with a bank, then the exchange rate will be the interbank rate for that day. This is the rate published on finance.yahoo.com and other similar sites. It changes day by day, but you can always look it up.

I'm pretty sure the atm doesn't care which country you are from - as n-moon already said, the rate is the rate. But you might look around for a card that will charge you less than 2.75%. Many of us use ones that don't charge tthat fee, but I have no idea if they are available to you.
