Isla Holbox tipping


I read on a Yucatan traval sight, that you should bring American 2 dollar bills, as they are speacial to them.

Does any one know if this is true on Isla Holbox and or why.

Thats an old myth I have heard for years but when I tell my Mexican friends they only laugh. They tell me they do the same with 2 dollar bills that they do with all dollars, they exchange for pesos as soon as they can.
