What is the rate of exchange at ATM's right now

I'm interested in how many pesos per USD, not fees or anything else. Thanks in advance.

At the airport on December 10, it was 13 to 1. Not sure anywhere else though and I know it changes almost daily.

Not sure what ATM zsa zsa used but its been a long time since I saw a rate that low. If its a bank ATM , you will get the bank rate. Today I got 12.84.

Yes it does matter. My bank here in Houston (Compass) has been bought by a bank in Spain. And it also owns Bancomer in Mexico. The bank here in Houston stocks pesos in-house at a couple of locations here and I'm trying to find out if it would be worth it to go here and be done with getting dollars to pesos.

A few days ago the rate did hit almost 13. I should have gone that day!

Thanks for everyone's info.

Unless you are making a large withdrawal it's not to much a factor. 12.90 as of Saturday

Chase bank gave me about 12.59 including fees per peso for what I took out at the ATM.

Anytime I travel, I just take money out of a local atm. It works great for me.

I thought our rate was really low this time compared to past as well.. We used (all 3 times) the one in the Oxxo in the alley across from Taco Factory.
