Banking and accessing funds are always on the minds of any traveler, but luckily for guests at Pinnacle Resorts, managing spending money for your Puerto Vallarta vacation is easy while you’re enjoying your stay. We have a few “Trip Tips” to help you with some of the practicalities of your travel planning.
- It wasn’t so many years ago that most restaurants in Puerto Vallarta did not accept credit cards, but our little city by the sea has become much more tech-savvy recently. In most restaurants, you can pay by Visa or Mastercard, some may accept American Express, and rarely will they take Diner’s Club, so be prepared with some backup options. But also have some cash on hand, as it is still common practice for casual eateries, taco stands, and some family-owned eateries to only accept cash payments.
- Most stores and restaurants will accept USD in place of Mexican pesos. The Canadian dollar is not a widely accepted currency in our city but can be exchanged for pesos at any of the numerous money exchange offices in the city.
- Many visitors to Puerto Vallarta find using their debit card at local ATMs to be the simplest way to access cash during their visit and several machines do offer USD as a withdrawal option if that is your preference. One thing to note, the ATM conversion rate will always be less advantageous than your bank’s rate. Bank machines function in English and Spanish, so you can simply decline the “Do you accept this rate?” prompt and the machine will still dispense your desired amount using your bank’s exchange rate.
- Traveler’s checks are not accepted in Puerto Vallarta.
