Pesos and Exchange Rate
Please budget at least $50 per day. You can exchange USD for MXN pesos at your local bank. I monitor the exchange rate a couple of months before camp. Bring pesos to Yelapa, as there are no ATM's or banks. I suggest 20, 50 or 100 peso note. Debit and credit cards are not accepted for payment, in Yelapa.
Yelapa has a sarong shop on the beach and a small store in the pueblo. There are a couple of beach vendors, who sell jewelry. There will be a Market Night on Tuesday.
