    Here is a site that shows you allw hat the Mexican money is like..

    Also...
    Do not accept torn or damaged pesos bills. Mexican currency, damaged in any way will not be accepted by any merchants, money exchanges or banks. If somebody offers you a damaged bill, refuse to accept it.

    ATM machines are all over Cancun hotel zone and there are a few in downtown Cancun City.

    ATM receipts are in pesos.

    It is advisable to carry lots of small bills and change because merchants never have change.

    i would hate to travel this way but when i earn the british pound everywhere else...

    if i exchange only £700 i get just under $1400....for two weeks... that should be enough!

    also another tip, dont exchange all at once, only exchange for amounts in which you need at that time!

    Well I would budget for around 50-60 USD for the clubs...You will need around 40 bucks depending on the club, and then money for the bus, and money for tipping each night
