American dollars spend just as well in Mexico, probably even better tbh. I think the workers prefer the USD as its exchange rate is always getting better.
Word of warning:
1) if you make purchases in Mexico using USD, they are required to provide you will your change in pesos. So bring a lot of smaller bills to avoid acquiring a ton of extra pesos.
2) the ATM machines on the property only give out pesos. We had a bunch of guests who were not able to locate an ATM that dispensed US Dollars.
3) if you get stuck with a bunch of pesos at the end of the week, give them out as tips, or there is a window at the Cancun airport to exchange them.
4) the people at the font desk will sometimes be able to break a $20 bill USD for you if you need it, but don't count on it.
