Do you think they would just take $1USD? I realize it's not exact but it's easier...

TCRH, you will probably get back change or you can always tell the driver to keep it.

Exchange rate today is 12.95 pesos to the dollar.

But then again some drivers may just keep it anyway and not bother with the change.

I agree, not much for a tourist. But to locals who many need to use two buses each way to get to work, the 33 pesos a day roundtrip , seems large.

Yes the VAT rate increase is going from 11% to 16% starting Jan. 2014.

That means it will be reflected in:

1. Payment for your timeshare membership.

2. Your payment for your annual Club Service Fees.

3. All Services, including: Dining, Tours & other purchases.
