Last year we took half and half of dollars and pesos as we werent too sure but everywhere we went was willing to accept either. This year I think we will just get a small amount of pesos just incase we do come across anywhere that doesn't accept dollars.

For non-Americans, the answer is simple--bring Pesos!

For Americans (having followed the peso/dollar debate in these forums) it seems that bringing dollars for tips are more convenient for the traveler as lower denominations of pesos can be tough to come by. For the Mexican that gets dollars as tips, they can still use them but many times have to convert to pesos.

So if you have USD you can bring and use them but wouldnt get any additional USD unless somehow you are making out on exchange rates...

If you're Canadian is it just as easy to get pesos as USD? If you have Canadian dollars why not just exchange them for pesos in Mexico or use your ATM card? I imagine that you would lose some anount in exchanging Canadian for USD...right?

I'm of the mind that the currency of Mexico is the Peso so....Pesos it is!!

if you can use pesos. if you tip in dollars the locals have to spend time in long lines at the bank to convert. More fun to use pesos!!
