Exchange Rate
 
I see that the dollar is very strong right now, highest we've seen it in years. Has the area adjusted prices because of this or will we be getting lots of "good deals"??

I would guess a bit of both. Probably more good deals at less touristy places.

Nothing noticeable unless you buy USA beef.
Then it's super noticeable.

It sure does....assuming you are taking it out and paying in pesos.
The number of people I witnessed paying in USD and getting brutal exchanges this past trip was mind blowing.

I know right!!! I tried to tell a guy one time that he should pay with peso's and not dollars as you got more value with the exchange rate. He replied, "I dont trust peso's".....I just walked away, how can you argue with logic like that!:joker:

Just tell him to give you all of those 'useless' pesos - you'll find something to do with them, eventually

Can't argue with stupid.. Best exchange I have ever seen for USA

People don't seem to be charging more, just not adjusting their exchange rate for paying in USD. They are making a killing. i.e. Tequila Barrel gives 11 pesos per dollar.
