Cash, credit or debit card?

We're making our 4th trip to PA, not doing the all-inclusive this time, we'll be staying 5 weeks in a condo. Which is best US dollars, credit card or a bank debit card. I'm concerned about bring alot of cash. Any good advice about grocery shopping? Any good advice on things not to forget at home?

We just use our debit card at the ATM's in PA....never been a problem, but check with your bank about any possible international fees. As far as shopping goes, the Super Chedraui just up the road from PA is quite nice. We usually pop in once a week to stock up when we rent a condo.

For the Yucatan Peninsula in general, we just used our debit card to get cash as we went along. It worked out well. We used our credit card for some things too - larger shopping purchases and occasionally in a restaurant. Mostly we used cash though.
