Visiting again soon.... a couple of questions

We'll be back in PDC in January.
What is the current exchange rate CAD$ or US$ ?
Are we better to pre-book private transfer or grab a cab upon arrival?
What can we expect to pay from airport to PDC?
We're staying near calle 25 & Ave 30.

Thanks!

If there are 4 or more of you then private transfer for sure. It ends up being not much more then the ADO bus and then the taxi required to your condo or hotel and is just an easy and a nice way to go. If it if just 2 of you then the ADO bus and a cab from the station on Juarez is the least expensive and will likely run you about 420 pesos ($29 CDN) for 2 of you.
Private transfer will cost you about $75.00 CDN one way or $135 return. (plus tip)
What is best depends on you and your budget.

I bring my peso's. In Toronto there is a polish money exchange called Kantor and they have the most competitive rates. Might be something comparable in Montreal. Also for my transportation I use Canada Transfers. Google them. I highly recommend them. On time even if your plane isn't. Clean vehicles and English speaking drivers. Price about $110.00 Canadian return.
