Just got our pesos from our local currency exchange. Only to find they are mostly 500 notes. Will they change in stores ect. I don't think buses like big notes. ??

Many stores will have change. The buses definitely will NOT. Just use as many large notes as often as you can to get smaller bills.

Have a great trip!

Most resorts have a cash drawer at their front desk to break down big notes into smaller ones.

Last year the banks had worse exchange rates than hotels...Sheraton Bouganvilla had the best rate.
