It seems to be staying right around 12 to 1 for travelers checks/dollars.

thanks for the update....are u in PV now? Just wondering how the "mood" is this year. Last year (we have a timeshare condo right next to the Marnina) we were greeted by bars on the the 1st and 2nd floor because of break-ins. Something that in 25 years of travelling to PV - I have NEVER seen. Shook me up a we also have security on all entrances..but "banditos" scaled the wall of the building!!

13.02 this morning, but it all depends upon where you go. Some years our hotel has the best exchange rate and some years it is the kiosks. We have even run into some of the gift shops that will have a much better rate if you have purchased something there. We did run into a place that would let us cash and extra $200 even though my wife only bought an inexpensive visor. The rate that year was 15 to 1
