I had no problema getting $7k NP at the BBVA ATM inside the San Yisidro crossing building next to the first bank window. Received at 18.73 after all fees.

Yeah, eff the Vizcaino Bancomer. No rhyme or reason on whether it will work with US cards. Worked for us once in late January (6k), then didn't in work at all the whole month of February (requiring two trips to Guerrero), despite trying both Wells Fargo and BofA cards.

Wasn't a money shortage as plenty of locals were getting cash as we were there. Oh well.

Some bank bureaucrat has a bright idea and then is 'surprised' by the fallout and consequences.

Free enterprise is the best system around but it does need regulating. The larger retailers will feel this too and b-tch to their representative and suddenly it will all go away. Meanwhile the local rug seller goes hungry. The rolling merchants servicing the playas aren't making enough to pay for the gas. Consequences.

I'm as paranoid as anyone and that's one of the scenarios I've considered. Of course numero uno has been that it's is all directed at ME!

(Loud laughter from the distaff side.)

A conderation in my musings has been that we've had no problem getting cash back from local merchants on our regular credit card. Of course they charge 30p per 1000p and our bank nails us $7.00 each time. And we transfer funds to keep the card balance at zero within the hour. But it does stave off starvation and night sweats.
