    What do you guys think of bringing travelers checks to Cancun? Is it worth it? Or is it better to just bring US dollars?

    Well u change them up to cash.

    Its cash basically just the benifit if they get lost/stolen u get em back and as they dont cost any extra i recomend them

    Well I guess for safetly concerns they would be better ie. if they get stolen. But I would find that cash is your best bet. You could always plsit it down the middle and bring some of each. But I think cash is more accessible

    ya, I have seen places in cancun that wouldnt except travelers checks! I am guessing because its a hassel for them! Thats why I stopped bringing them. All cash for me but I use my safe in the room and only take out what I need.
