Where can I find pesos reliably?

That was one of the questions we often asked when my family first moved here. "Where can I find a safe and reliable ATM or currency exchange".

These machines are frequently refilled and checked for security so rest assured. If you choose to use these machines make sure you decline the exchange rate.

We see an average ATM fee of 50-120 pesos, so if you see the fee is significantly higher consider finding a different machine.
