At today's rate you would get 1218.03 MXN Peso's for every $100 CDN. I would get some from your bank to get you going when you arrive and then use your ATM card for more as you need it when you get down there.

Either home or ATM on arrival you will receive around 12.5 to the buck meaning 8 cents each. If you bring a handful from home changing money won't be an early priority. At best you might bring it down to 7.7 cents at an ATM upon arrival. I'd bring some.

Please consider NOT tipping in US dollars while in Manzanillo. The locals have a very hard time exchanging it.

You'll always get a better echange rate using the ATM to withdraw pesos from you Canadian account, as long as youre withdrawing 4000 or 5000 pesos at a time. Smaller amounts only make sense if your bank gives you free out of country withdrawls on foreign currency.

Why would you bring USD to tip? If you tip in pesos no one will lose exchanging USD to pesos and you won't lose changing CAD to USD. Only the banks lose if you use pesos for everything.

whoops...I was responding while #4 was.
