This isn't so much a question as it is a comment. I've been an annual visitor to PV for many, many years and I noticed a trend this year that I'd thought I'd mention because it seems like a lot of people are caught unprepared. It seems to me that more and more restaurants/bars/businesses are no longer taking credit cards. I think it's a common expectation among visitors to popular tourist destinations that "every place" accepts credit cards. This is no longer true. For whatever reason, I'm guessing it's the fees that the credit card companies charge businesses, more businesses are on a "cash only" basis - even some higher end places. Smart to check in advance of going out or carry a peso stash just in case. Even if a business takes credit cards, they'd rather have cash.
