    Just checked online, as of right now its 10.475 pesos to 1 USD, supprising, because approx 3 1/2 years ago it was approx 12 to 1. You can thank that jackass in the White House for that one! :finger:

    Yes the US$ has weakened against the peso in the last 6 months or so, as it has most other currencies. The peso runs quite close to the dollar though so it's not as big a change as the US$ to the pound or euro.

    Have your fun blaming George for everything - we will see how well the next jackass does and I am sure you will notice no one satisfies everyone. Well... maybe Lalo. LOL

    A little note about the US dollar, and Steve is correct, the Peso runs against the dollar and Mexico bases their value off of the US dollar, and that's why it the difference hasn't changed a ton. As of right now, the majority of the world basis their value off of our dollar. Here's the problem and a huge one for us in the US, because our economy is tanking, many countries are considering changing and using the Euro for valuing their dollar instead of the US dollar because of how strong the Euro is. Without going into a ton of detail.....this is a bad thing and will de-value our dollar even more if this starts happening.

    We've been going to BBG/TTR since 2004 and I am pretty sure that the exchange rate at the resort has been the same on every trip (6 trips).

    Last November when we went we thought the Canadian dollar may have a better exchange rate than the USD since our dollar was worth more. No such luck. The USD was still higher in Cancun.

    For the last 6 years that we have been going to cancun the dollar/peso has been 10/1 to 11/1. i think that wont change much, BUT what i have seen lately was the prices go up.
    i remember when u could get a taxi from BBg to sr frogs for 65 pesos last trip it was 90 pesos. besides that the drinks in the bars havent gone up too much to make a difference.
