Hello everyone. I know this has been addressed before but its confusing for me because our last couple of trips we stayed in AIs in other areas and didnt really leave the hotel and just tipped in US dollars and used our credit cards. I've been reading in this forum that we should try to use pesos and will get a better deal if we use pesos. That makes sense to me. So the question is where and how do we get pesos? (Im not gonna rob a Mexican bank because the food, not so good in the Mexican jails)
Can we get Pesos in the U.S. before we leave? How? Do we get them at the airport or in Isla at an ATM? How much can you get at one time out of an ATM? Which are the best ATMs to use? I'm worried we wont be able to get enough cash (Pesos) in hand to pay for all the things we need to pay for. Is Isla Mujeres a cash society, or will be able to use normal credit cards to pay for, example, a week's golf cart rental, meals and drinks everyday, excursions, etc. Also, what is the going exchange rate in Isla and how does one figure what the US dollar amount of a given number of Pesos are? Thanks to everyone for helping me figure this out!
