NZD to Pesos?

Hello fellow travellers!

My husband and I are traveling to Playa del Carmen next month from New Zealand.

What would you reckon as the best way to convert NZD into Pesos?

Using local ATM in Mexico, perhaps? Apparently Travelex does not offer Pesos.

Thanks :)

Yes, I would use ATMs as the simplest way of obtaining local currency. It might be worth calling your bank just to check that your NZ card will definitely work in Mexico (just in case). For extra security you might want to convert 50-100 USD to take as, in that particular part of Mexico, you could spend them in an emergency (e.g. you're tired from your flight and the nearest ATM isn't working!).

Thank you for the comment, SteveMex! I just checked with my bank regarding the procedure and all the fees.

I'm also visiting the states on this occasion so I think spare 100 USD cash would be a great idea!
