What is the current currency rate pesos/us$? Is it 10/1us or 11/1us. It was 11 pesos/1us 2 yrs ago in Cabo. Either way, why would you have 15000 pesos left from a trip??? How much do you take on vacation Bevoz???

If you like beer, you have enough for four beers at the airport bar.

No pesos left for our last trip. I spent what I had left in Mexican currency at the Jimmy Buffet bar at the airport.

It's not nessary since US dollars are accepted in several businesses. You get a better rate if your ATM card a a machine.

I know I don't have many pesos left from last summer, but I can raid Christian's Mexican wallet. He's like the Scotia Bank!

Just dug it out yesterday when I gathered our passports. We’ve got $300 pesos and some odd change. Hopefully enough to get us to the ferry from the Cozumel airport and maybe buy a few cervesas while we wait!
