Exchange rate at CRT

Can anyone tell me the exchange rate (pounds to pesos) at CRT? Was going to exchange before we go but I have heard that the rate is better there.

Can't tell you exactly what you need, but we were there middle of May. The exchange rate for US dollars was 10.8 to one US dollar. The rate in Playa del Carmen was around 11.3 to the dollar.

Hopefully some one there now will tell you what you need.

I don't recall ever seeing a rate for "pounds". There were posted rates for euros, $US, and Canadian $'s.

We were warned by our Best Day Travel rep that the exchange rate place in the lobby had horrible rates. We got our money exchanged at home so I can't verify that.

Thanks for the link. Many say the rates are better in Mexico (about 20 per pound) than in England (only about 17).

Thanks. I just want to know what the rate is at CRT and in other places in Mexico itself. Whenever I've been abroad before, I've always regretted getting foreign currency in the UK as the rates have always been better in the destination country, even in the actual hotel itself.
