You are always going to come out ahead by paying for things in pesos. The rates here fluctuate daily. Numerous websites to check rates as well, check your bank. You can change your money at the banks (9am to 1pm only), money exchange but the best rate will be using your ATM card where you will only get pesos. Then, you won��t have to bring large amounts of $$ with you!

I am going on my 3rd trip down to Mexico! Advice is...take Canadian travelers cheques...and convert there! It's really easy to do! As well, you do get a better rate from the ATM machines! I would convert about $100 Canadian up here, just to get you through the first day or so! Our dollar is doing great...it's a really good time to go down south for us! Hope this helps!
