Favorite thing: Use Mexican pesos for your purchasing whenever you can. 10 pesos is worth approximately $1 USD. Pesos are easy to use, exchange, and are just as convenient as U.S .dollars. (The exchange rate at the Cancun airport is actually quite good.) The use of foreign U.S. dollars for trade can lead to a catastrophic economic collapse of a country as it did in Argentina and Turkey. Using the local currency of a poorer country helps build confidence in that country's money and in the long run helps everyone who lives there.
