Question about tips

Is it ok to bring USD for tips instead of Pesos?

Thanks everyone.

It's better to tip in pesos, but better to tip in USD than not at all.

of course - as long as they are not torn or poor condition - no coins

However $5 cnd bills are much more appreciated

Where in Canada are you from

As I have to exchange my Cnd $ to another currency, I go to my local exchange house and get lots of 20 / 50 peso bills

A 20 peso bill tip is much more appreciated than a $1 US bill

If you are a Tourist, tip in USD, If you are a Traveler, tip in Pesos.....

So it goes ...If you are planning to stay in your resort compound and not leave, tip in dollars. If you plan to be adventerous and see Mexico the way it should be seen and venture out, I suggest getting Pesos at a Bank owned ATM.....

Yes, we have used pesos, but mostly use US and quite honestly any tip is well received.
