First timer questions

Hello all, new here and have booked trip for end of Feb at an AI, Iberostar. First time visit to this area.
Question, does one need to carry any pesos, or will USDs suffice for tips, etc. If I need local currency, it would only be for minor snack/gift purchases, probably only a couple of hundred at best. Where would be the best to obtain? I'll assume that at the resort the USD's will be welcome...correct??
Lots of great snorkeling info is already here and elsewhere, my other interest would be in light tackle fishing, (I've spent grueling days fishing deep sea tournament, absolutely no interest in that anymore).
But I haven't seen a lot of info on light tackle half day trips, except a few I thought were really pricey, (but maybe I'm too cheap).
I remember in Turks taking a half day bone fish deal, around $95 at the time I believe. Anyone know of anything comparable in this area??
Thanks to all and this is a great forum!!!
