Thanks everybody for advices.So looks like is the best would be to bring some pesos on arrival and have a debit card just in case.

If you are a member, what we do is go to CAA before we leave. They have pre-made packages of pesos in certain amounts. If we want a larger amount of pesos it may take a day or two but the exchange rate is what the current rate is and there is no transaction fee.

We then use our ATM card for additional pesos as required. Never had a problem. (Don't forget, the ATM will tell you the amount in pesos, NOT dollars! The first time I used it I took out $200 wanting that much dollars worth of pesos but got 200 pesos and had to make another withdrawal.)
