I have been travelling to the PV and Bucerias area for 10 years now. Normally my husband and I take USD with us, and while we are in Bucerias we use the bank machine to withdraw pesos if we need more spending money while we are there.
Yes I do know that LOCAL CURRENCY is always wanted, but at the same rate I know that the local people have always accepted USD.
I have heard from friends that have travelled to Mexico, both coasts......PV and Cancun, and people have said that the locals are not accepting USD like they were before. That alot of vendors and restaurants are requesting pesos. If this is the case then I will NOT bring USD. I will get pesos.
I am actually a home based travel agent and there are a group of 12, my friends and I going to the RDC in 45 days. We need to make sure that we have the proper currency with us, and I am the person that needs to have this information.
Thank you so very much
happy travels and viva MEXICO
