Are US Dollars widely accepted

Are US Dollars widely accepted in the Maya Riviera?

For example small vendors, taxi's, restaurants, and shopping outside Grand Serenis? Or is it absoultely necessary to have mexican pesos?

Thank you

US dollars are accepted at most tourist places, but if some one does not take them, do not be surprised, you are in Mexico and the currency is Pesos. They take US doolars as a convienience to the tourists.

Take Pesos, you can't go wrong.

As you are from Ontario , you have to exchange our Cnd $ prior to going there (Exchange House or ATM that provides US$ (best way). Or you can get pesos there with an ATM and enjoy their currency/culture
