Oh and also, I have been to Cancun for the last 3 years on the spin and EVERYWHERE takes US dollars. Mexicans look generally disappointed if you give them paseos as the US exchange is better for them. Especially in taxi's and for tips too. Hope that is some help?
Starting to panic that I havent done enough!
We had a letter from our travel agent saying about the peso/dollar thing, but i think we'll take dollars anyway and see what happens... (Credit card in the pocket too just incase) x

Hey ladies just checking in and saw a couple of points might be able to help you with:
1. They still accept peso and dollars like they always have done. If u use your credit card that will be calculated in dollars.
2. For those of you flying with Thomson we took our letter with us when we checked in about the additional luggage and there were no quibbles over anything but be warned.... You have to spread your extra 10kgs each over 2 bags ie; you will end up taking 6 bags if you use all your allowance and the 2 additional bags to your suitcase have to weigh exactly 5kgs each I cannot tell u how many times I rearranged our bags.
3. You WILL be charged for anything you are over on the way back.
4. The dolpins is a complete rip off compared to what it was when we went 3 years ago - you no longer can pay to have the photos they take printed off - they only put them on a CD and charge about $30 per photo. Its about $150 for an adult and thats if you go direct obviously more with the tour operator - our hotel was a stones throw from the marina at Puerto Aventuras so the rest of our guests booked direct. We didnt swim with them this time. They also do too many things now to try and cash in on the photos rather than swimming etc with them.
Thanks Josie...... Great help xxx Glad to see you popping back on now and agan xx
