Exchange

In the USA I go to my local Wells Fargo bank and purchase pesos. No limit. I do have to make the request online with bank and use particular branches. And this last trip down I had Wells Fargo FedEx the peso’s to my home address in USA before I flew down. When I run out…I will do a direct wire transfer from my Wells Fargo account to Santander. per agreement between those banks. . Best exchange rate possible at the time of the transfer. WF allows $800 USD per transaction. No ZIH bank account required. Transaction # from WF to Santander required. Also Passport and local address and/or phone number requested by the Teller at pick up.
Beats ATM rates. Requires lining up at the bank.

Well what did you get for an exchange rate? Remember to check your account a week later for charges beyond $800. Personally I would never bank at WF.
