exchanging money

We are traveling from the UK in June. Is it better to exchange money before traveling or wait until we arrive?

You can use an ATM there. Just let your bank know what you will be doing. If you exchange at home, get pesos right away. Don't do US dollars and pay a double exchange rate.

You should arrive with say 1000 pesos (45GBP) so that getting cash is not your arrival priority. ATM is the way to go.

If you don't have a chance to obtain some pesos before you leave the UK, there are several ATM's in the Puerto Vallarta airport. (Just one more option.)

Plus the RIu will change your money at a good rate (just as good as the Fees with a ATM)

They will NOT change usdollars.
