    You'll probably get charged your usual international rate..call your bank or check their website...

    There's a 'Wet n' Wild' waterpark in Cancun It was closed last year i think but this year should be back open (Can anyone confirm?)

    Depends on your bank.

    I still bank mainly in the UK and have been using my maestro crad at the ATM's for 2 1/2 years. You'll get a better rate and if your bank doesnt charge too much it will work out better, but check on their charges. I bank with HSBC and Abbey National btw and both are fine on charges.

    dont use the cash machines...

    i stupidly left all my dollars at home last year (what a tw*t!)
    so had to withdraw pesos at the ATMs in cancun, i worked out i lost
    just over £100 in the exchange and the withdrawal each time as there is
    a maximum you can get out each day. was bollocks!

    and yeah there is a waterpark. its not the best though, compared to
    ones you get in europe and spain and stuff.
    and it was dead when we went. but we got to watch a sea lion show!!! :D
