I won’t be there until later this week, but on past trips, I have found the $C:$M local exchange rate to not be an important consideration. I withdraw my pesos from my Canadian account using an ATM (ScotiaBank in my case).

When prompted whether I accept the exchange rate quoted, I say no.

My pesos are then dispensed, using my Canadian bank’s exchange rate that has typically been better than the rate quoted on the ATM screen.

Going by Rob's link for the banks, Intercam is showing an exchange rate of 16.16 pesos for the CDN$ and CityBanamex is showing a rate of 16.67. 2 years ago, Intercam was the second best for exchanging CDN$ to pesos and the best exchange rate in a bank was just over 14/1. If that rate sticks around or gets better, this is good news for Canadians.
