Ohhh I understand now, just looked at how many £ a Peso actually is and it's all made sense!! £500 is 11,000 Pesos! Can see how it gets confusing!

I shall take your advice and take mainly Pesos then with a couple hundred in Dollars as I assume that will come in handy when trying to pick up supplies at the events!

@Dirk Bigler thank's for the tips but we already have a nice hotel booked about 30 minutes down the road. We are mainly there for the Zamna & Day Zero events but obviously going to do touristy stuff as well, have some friends staying directly in Tulum so will venture down there a lot I'm sure
The hotel waiter told me that they charge you less for supplies if your a local.

Get your Mexican impressions practiced!

The peso is one of the few currencies that the pound has strengthened against so deffo get pesos...you'll get worse value on the conversion into dollars and then ypui'll get the same on the conversion from USD to pesos once you are there anyway as they won't convert using the current rate....

Taking USD into countries where that is not the currency is very odd. My mates tried to persuade me to do it when we went to Russia + Moldova but he basically got ripped off with terrible exchange rates all the time.

Cheers people! I shall take the Pesos then! Might write down the basic conversions into notes i.e £5=, £10=, £50=, £100= etc

Anyone who has been to Tulum do you advise on changing my money up to Dollars or Pesos? Have had a search on google and it doesn't really help!

At events will prices be in Dollars or Pesos and likewise what would be the predominant currency for purchasing party pieces be?
At events at Zamna it was all cashless and you loaded up using credit card ... I recommend the Halifax Clarity card as you get proper exchange rate and you can also withdraw cash (pesos) from cash points ... We did this and yon end up paying about 1% 12% per annum divide by 12 in interest if you pay it back within the month)

Already have one of those cards! And got a Monzo as well so using my cards abroad is no problem at all! I’m sure all the info for events and payment will come out in advance so can budget between cash and card accordingly then. Thanks!
