Sterling to pesos

I have read the other threads about currency exchange but nothing really refers to sterling to pesos exchange.Will the banks on isla easily change sterling to pesos. I incur very high charges for ATM usage abroad so that's not really an option. Any advice about sterling exchange would be appreciated.

Banks and cambios will exchange. Larger hotels will..though you will be hosed on the rate. Many Brits come over and use ATMs. Perhaps you should post asking which banks they use and what rates they get. I know in the US it varies from bank to bank and even amongst customers of the same bank. Are the rates your bank charges fixed?

Determine your budget and then get pesos at home

Then bring backup sterling to exchange if you run low
