Depending on where you are using it. Not all businesses give 10:1 exchange. :)

Pesos are easier because you aren't having to figure out what exchange rate you are getting but just to clarify you can use USD in PV.

Not meaning to be snarky, honest, but why would anyone ask this question? Mexico is an independant, soverign, proud country with its own monatary system. Maybe time to get over latent ethnocentrism?

As above posters Pesos is the way to go.

When you use USD you'll be paying appx.25%more for your purchase.
