I'm assuming you can pay DT for wedding stuff with a credit card, right?
Also- can you cash travellers checks at DT. Does anybody know?
THANKS! I'm leaving on Saturday early and trying to get all my payments to all my vendors organized!!! yahoo!!
Yes to payment by CC. But note that they will charge you in mexican pesos (so they take the quoted American amount, convert to pesos, and then your credit card converts it back from pesos to American dollars. So you may get charged more with the double conversions)
Yes to travellers cheques. You can use them directly for the package in US$. If you want to exchange them for cash, you can only get pesos, not US cash for them at the front desk (well likely anywhere for that matter. If they gave you US$ they would have to give it to you at par and would make no profit, which is why they insist on giving it to you in pesos so they can make a bit of money off the exchange rate).

Approx 45 mins. You can take the collectivo (public van/bus) for 2$ which will take longer obviously, or a cab (I forget the cost but I think may have quoted it in my review, otherwise it's in my newsletter) or one of the tour companies' organized party bus nightly trips which will be more expensive since it includes cover at the bars.
