It is basically your own preference, Peso's or US dollars. Myself? I always take and used US, most or all vendors will give you back your change in Peso's which I spend right away in another shop or trip (or give away as tips) because peso's are no good at home, this is why I do not bother with changing a whole lot of money into Peso's, you may not use it all.

I would suggest sticking to the US Dollar.

Have a great trip : )

If you ask for your change in US$s, they will give you your change in US$s. Just make it clear before hand!

If you are planning on going 'off resort' (and I recommend that you do) then take pesos.

There is little, if any advantage to taking US$ from the UK other than entry & exit tax.

Withdraw from an ATM using a Nationwide or HSBC card to get your pesos.

You can pay for trips using your card which *generally* will give you insurance too.
