    Last year I took all USD, all cash.

    This year I'm taking all cash in Pesos. They round up the price in Pesos to get the dollar price.

    MOst hotels give you a safe, so providing you use that having everything in cash shouldn't be an issue.

    I hear for your UK's it might be better to take pesos. that way you odn't loose on the xchange from Uk to USD to Pesos..

    Same with us Canadians..We have to convert twice.

    I would just take cash personally. I can't be bothered to go and get them cashed.

    Read this thread mate.

    You can change travellers cheque's up in most places, would'nt recomend the hotels though as their exchange rate is shite. Personaly speaking ( from experience ) i'd take a few hundred quid in cash and my bank card.

    Enjoy.
