    we just ordered ours from our bank of 34 years. They really hose us on the exchange rate but I'm not too comfortable with using the ATM's down there. Perhaps your bank can help you without gouging you

    Did they give, only small? I don’t care about the rate, as long as get 100 pesos and under... maybe a few 200.....

    We have always got pesos from Tesco and I don’t remember having a problem, pretty sure we’ve gone with 50s and 100s before. They may even order them in. Looking forward so seeing you!

    We use Thomas Global Exchange and have always been able to get small denomination notes. Trouble is all there offices seem to be in London but worth doing a search on Glasgow or Edinburgh for them or similar They do good exchange rates as well...…….

    The options were small, large or mixed. We went with mixed but there are no larger the $500 Mexican. Going with all small would require bringing another suitcase lol

    Chase. Got the bills today, not many smaller bills, but an exchange rate of 20:1 guess 20 and 50 bills are practically pointless anyway
