I am leaving in a few days for my bachelorette in Mexico and I am so excited? Anyone who has travelled there recently? What currency did you bring and what are you currency recommendations? We are staying in cancun for 5 nights.
We were there in March. They accept both US and pesos. Personally I recommend using the Mexican peso as you get a better value, more bang for your buck when you exchange our Canadian $ for Mexican pesos.
Convert your CDN to MX peso. Otherwise you are giving away your money in MX. If you bring USD to MX, they will give you an exchange of $1USD = $10 MX pesos. When in fact $1USD is actually closer to $19 pesos.
That is so exciting. My parents went to Mexico a couple years ago and I only remember them bringing USD. We are also going for our honeymoon and everything I have read says USD is best.
If you are doing an all inclusive I don't think you would need too much, just basically for tipping or if you want to buy things. If you guys are going off the resort have a little bit more just in case
Nope. We just paid for everything in USD (since most things were priced in that). I'm assuming you and your girlfriends are planning on leaving the resort to party? You could change some of your money to pesos but I'd do it sparingly since you probably won't get the same amount back if you need to change it back.
