Hi, hope you have a fab holiday. went to mexico last year we took all US dollars, they accept both currencies wherever you go. i would check out the exchange rate and get the best deal.

i think i'll get dollars, plus i'll have my card with me for emergencies

when i was there i was told by travel agent to take pesos but when got there all they would take is us dollars so had to get em all changed

thankyou, me and my gf are very excited!! first holiday together and first holiday out of europe!!!!

my maths is not the best so it might be an idea to check with a travel agent but when i was there if something cost 100 peso's then its cost in dollars was 10. at the minute 10 dollars would cost you approx 7.30 but 100 peso'c costs 5.25. so peso's may get you more for your money.

hope you and your gf have a great time the sea is like stepping into the bath,me oh and kids are off to cuba again on the 4th june i cant wait either.

i have heard the average temp of the sea is like 23 degrees which is warm as anything. yeah we really really cant wait. i tan easy as well so i should come bk quite dark! i cant wait to just chill out n also see the sights havent had a holiday for bout 4 years!

When a few years back BK (before kids) I know they preferred dollars then, and especially when you arrive at the airport we had to pay some kind of Tax in dollars. Have Fun. PS If they still do the speedboat and snorkel excursion I highly recommend it.

gonna do the snorkling for sure. and anything else we can do! i know they have a massive coral reef there and dolphins so gonna swim with them too!!! ahhhhhhhhh all this talk makes me want to go so much more!

im pretty sure that the travel agent said US Dollars when we first booked it but i cant remember, i'll pop in and ask em!

you should def do the dolphin swim we did it and its the most amazing experience i have ever had.one ill remember forever, my hubby did loads of snorkelling but he also went scuba diving that really messed up his ears so dont do it the day before you fly home as you will be in agony.
