The advantages to going online is many. Not carrying dollars to exchange for pesos. Not carrying a lot of pesos. I can pay for services for vendors like Shari easily. I can, in the case of an emergency, get a hold of more cash than I like to carry while camping.



....if that's all you need,, try using a debit card at banks.

You can keep funds low in your debit account, Etransfer from another account when needed. I kept 2 debit cards,, one or the other always seems to work in Mex.

That works, but US ATM's are not free, do not always work.

The word 'emergency' is the key. After 20 years of hauling pesos, this is a good option to have.

Current exchange rate is 18:1. Haven't hit the Bancomer ATM, maybe Thurday.
