Only 3 more weeks!! Riu here we come!!

Only 3 more weeks and can you believe after reading every review and message I still have some questions.

If I take US dollars can I just change that in for pesos? I would hate to get there and my ATM not work or something. I know I wont get as good of a rate but at least I would have the cash.

Also does anyone know if Bucerias and Paradise Village are the same or close or are they both neat to visit???? I cant seem to find a very good map of which way things are laid out. I have read good things about both but Im clueless where they are.

Hope to see some of you at the Riu. Im soooooo ready for Paradise!!

The village will be to your left when you leave your resort...this is an actual "town/village" with churchs a market , bartering etc...- mnutes away.

Paradise Village is a Hotel , zoo area , and a shopping mall...this will be to your right about 10 -15 minutes away...

You can exchange your dollar bills to Pesos at the front desk of your hotel...but keep in mind all the restaraunts and beach venodor accept (and like) US dollars...not a problem using them instead of PESOs....
