Stop worrying and bring a bank card. ATM's are great!

We always bring lots of $1.00 bills for tipping, like $100.00 worth. It is hard to get change for a $20.00 bill!!! We bring cash for all the extras, but the ATM card idea sounds like a good idea too. Do they have them in the hotels or at the banks???...Do debit cards work down there?

Yes, debit cards work just fine. In fact we rely on ours for all of our needs for pesos. Just be sure to use them at a bank when it is open so that in the event of a malfunction there is someone to help.

Banks usually give the best rate of exchange also.
