    Many people on here will speak to the contrary about credit cards... but I don't find them useful for small purchases. Going out to dinner and/or a big Walmart run would be places I would use it.

    but for the markets, clubs, convenience stores, tipping, etc.. cash is king.

    I'm not even close to an expert.

    Hell, I've never even been to Cancun.













    But I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night.

    I bring a couple hundred bucks and take out a couple thousands of pesos from the ATM. I carry a little of each when I go out. Most places will accept both. I look at the exchange rate they use and decide which currency to use. Right now $1 = $10.75 pesos. So if the club promoter asks for 30 dollars or 300 pesos for the entrance, I give him pesos. If MickyD charges 5 dollars or 55 pesos for big mac meal, I pay in dollars.
