The money exchange in town near Don Memo's has been closed for two days. There is no change in the posted hours they are just locked up tight. Does anyone know if they will be opening again?

No, I have no idea. You should consider using a bank where you'll get a much better exchange rate.

Both Scotia and Banorte would not exchange our US dollars, no explanation just said only Canadian. We've exchanged at both these banks in the past. Had our passports and everything.

Scotia is not doing Canadian dollars exchange for months now.

Scotia didn't offer an explanation just said they couldn't do it. Banorte said only Canadian.

Sorry to hear all those places are denying you service. I recommend Banco Azteca on Benito Juárez just past the market on the left heading away from the bay. Just take your ID and they'll happily change your bills and even give you a decent rate.

If you are a regular visitor, obtain a debit card from Intercam Banco, now in Zihua and Ixtapa. Scotia Bank does not charge ATM withdrawal fees on Intercam Cards which are paid in pesos. I suspect that Intercam will soon have its own ATM machines, but the Scotia bank machines at the bank on Benito Juarez as well as the one one in the Sorianna location work well with no extra fees.
