We are going to Peurta Vallarta. We have been advised to take cash in US dollars. It does not seem safe. Suggestions.
I travel to PV allot. I always bring a large amount of cash. You can exchange up to $300.00 per day per person at Banorte you must bring a photo copy of your passport every time. There exchange is always the best and they never charge a fee. Lately it has been at about14.3 to 14.5. The bank machine you can withdraw cash on your debit/credit card but keep in mind you will be charged on both ends. The use in Mexico about $50 pesos and the foreign fee on the american side plus exchange. I keep the credit card for emergency situation only or for big purchases at stores. Most restaurants do not take credit cards. about 4 years ago
