Current exchange rate at GBP

Just wondering if its worth it for me to drive to the Currency Exchange place on Saturday to get Pesos or if I should just go to the bank (which is way more convenient) and get USD and exchange it at the hotel. Does anyone know the current rate of exchange there this week.

We are arriving next Monday.

Thanks!

they exchange Canadian at Bahia - usually the same rate

Why not use the ATM In the Hacienda?

DO NOT use the lobby atms that give out US $ as the fees are very high

Really? Canadian at the same rate??? Hmmmm never heard that. I thought I read that there was some people that said the ATM rates were not good. I take it the one at the Hacienda is different? I hate having to be there and figuring out all the exchange rates and fees and then being at the mercy of whatever it is because you have no cash...lol.

Maybe I will just bring Canadian and take the risk. I do have about 300 Canadian worth of Pesos from my last trip so I should be ok to start.

Thanks for your reply

Are you sure you read that "atm rates are not good?" It's very hard to do better...

If you use the ones that give you US$ in the Lobbies, you get extra fees / double exchange rates

True enough, but I don't think that' what the OP was asking about...

I'm sure it's just a temporary thing, but the ATM at the Hacienda was out of order when we were there the other night.
