dollars to pesos

What is best for money exchange (dollars to pesos) in Mexico nowadays? Should one exchange at the airport, bank or casa de cambio? And is cash or credit card better? Are banks closed on wkends? Thanks.

NO FEE ATMs for cash (pesos here) and NO FEE CCs are the most favorable internationally.

I used my Cap One ATM at Banamex (ATM) this AM and got 15.2856 pesos/1 USD.

Cambios beat banks and TTs are something from the early '90's.

AMEX just gave me a 14.982 for a purchase on the 4th. Business trip so I had to use it. I always try and use the ATM myself.
