There are limits being introduced such as not being able to exchange more than 1,500 USD cash per person per month, no individual transaction payable with more than 100 USD cash and so on. Many banks continue to refuse dollars because of their self-imposed regulations. Coming from the UK you are best using pesos anyway.
