My resort uses peso or Canadian!!  the only things I had to pay in US dollars was the photographer and dolphin excursion.

 

Maybe yours will too? or are they clear it is in US dollars?

 

I also tipped in pesos and just ensured it was what I would have paid in Canadian.  Noone said a word, but probably because you had to force them to take the tip, they didn't want them!

 At least our planning website says the prices with USD beside it :(. I've accepted it now and will have to just account for that when making different decisions

 

Loving the new profile pic by the way ;)

it's stupid, but I'm trying to focus on the fact that the interest rate for our mortgage will be lower, which ends up being more money in the end haha. yay! I guess you can't have everything

At least us Canadians usually receive a free package deal after so many people book with the group rates! I couldn't imagine the extra costs some brides have to pay
I hate having to account for the money conversion lol! What happened to our dollar being on par to even above??
