Hola, am heading back to beeeeuteeful Bucerias soon and am wondering what you are getting for Cdn.$$ to pesos these days

You can check out www.xe.com for currency rates. Today's rate is almost 12.5 pesos to the Canadian $, a little over the rate for USD.

You'll be able to get the best rate of exchange at ATM's, rather than at exchange windows.

Have a great trip and have a margarita for me!

The xe.com rate will be a little higher than what you actually get, but gives a good guideline.

Usually, but not always, ATM's get you the best rate, casas de cambio the next best, and hotels usually the worst rate.

My wife and i are going in two weeks. I have read that the best way to convert your money is through the ATM s. This will be the first time i travel that way. Do i have to notify my bank that i will be in mexico to use my ATM card. Thank you.

beachesmontreal. It is much safer for you if you notify your bank you will be in Mexico and WILL be using your card. I've never experienced our bank from Canada refusing a withdrawal down here, however, I have heard that it has happened to people in the past when they did NOT tell their bank. It is better to be safe than sorry.

Have a great trip!

Make sure you notify your bank AND your credit card company and also

give them a time frame a couple of days over your departure...... I went

to use my credit card on my last day in Neuvo Vallarta in March and it

was declined!!! Thank goodness I had cash! When I returned home I

called my credit card co. and gave them whatfor and they said it was

for my own protection that they did that! An oversight on their part I'm

sure, but as I said, give your return date at a couple of days more, just

in case. Both are getting very sticky, at least in Canada about fraud.

Hope this helps,

Happy Travels

Converting 8.09 Canadian Dollars to Mexican Pesos will yield 100.00 Mexican Pesos.

(Derived rate = 12.3609)

This is what my bank shows for exchanging here before I go.

Of course since Mexico is a new destination for us I will have to do a bit of research to see what is the appr amount to tip in pesos and what roughly i would need to exchange.

Be safe, inform your bank that you will be using your ATM card in Mexico and it doesn't hurt to inform your credit cards as well. In 9 years, only a couple of problems, my son wasn't able to use his ATM - he told them and hasn't had a problem since. My Visa refused me once after I had told them I would be in Mexico, we had a nice chat and it hasn't happened since.

ALWAYS--ALWAYS--ALWAYS!!! Phone your bank (debit card) and ALL credit card companies (if you're taking their card, of course). Tell them when you're leaving and returning, and the area you're visiting. Also, ask them to notify your account AND YOUR FILE. Once, we didn't realize we were talking to q new employee qt Visa. She did NOT flag the file that we were in Mexico. We got into some trouble over that one. Have a great trip!!

Another tip, make photocopies of all of your cards and passports so in case yopu lose them or ?- you have the card info and phone numbers to call to report them lost or stolen.
