Canadian $

Travelling to Los Cocos for our 1st time Apr 4-11, 14. Should we exchange our Canadian dollars or does the resort accept Canadian funds?

Take pesos easiest and most cost effective as you get better rate exchanging in Canada over exchanging at hotel

Or use your ATM card. There are plenty machines around. I'd bring Pesos from home to make cash less of an arrival priority. http://www.vbce.ca/ will courier Pesos to Merritt.

Yes, pesos in Mexico and there's ATMs abound. Just make sure you have a 4 digit pin.

Have fun!!

I always buy pesos in Canada before I leave for Mexico - we have lots of options for exchange in the Vancouver area and rates tend to be competitive. However, you can exchange Canadian dollars at the front desk at Los Cocos. Last time I was there, they were offering $1 Cdn = 11 pesos. That was February 2014.

Lots of ATMs in the area and that seems to be the preferred way for most people.
