Default Cozumel - US dollars or pesos

My husband and I are traveling to Cozumel on the Conquest the first week of March. We plan to take a cab to a beach club for snorkeling then return to town for refreshments and a little sight-seeing. Should we take pesos for these activities or will US currency take care of cabs, food/drink and a little shopping?
Thanks !

U.S. dollars are accepted there. You will have no problems using U.S. currency anywhere in Mexico. I would reccomend that you have plenty of small bills, as sometimes cabbies seem to have no change.

I second that! Those people will try to scam you out of extra money. At the beach they'll tell you a bucket of beer is $15 but if you use a credit card it's $20 and then because of some phenomenon only occuring in Cozumel, Mexico at the time your suppose to return to the ship all credit card machines stop working.

And then when you get back to the ship the cab driver will not have change for a $20 despite the fact he's carried passengers for cash all day long.

Regards,
Thomas

I consider myself warned! We'll take lots of $1.00 and $5.00 bills.
Thanks
