Default Currency Exchange for Mexican Riviera Cruise?

Hi, all!
Well, it's getting closer - sailing next month! Anway, DH was wondering about getting some money exchanged into pesos. Where do you all recommend doing that? Airport (San Diego), on board (if possible - rates??), or in port (rates??)?

Thanks as always! Happy Holidays!
Marilyn

I would not bother exchanging as the dollar is universally accepted at fair exchange and in most cases, much preferred.

Agreed. No need to exchange. They may give you some coins in local currency if they don't have the US coins.
Be mindful of any large purchases when using a credit card. That decimal point can be tricky!

Same here. Have been to Mexico dozens of times on cruises and never exchanged money. They are quite happy to take ours!
