Default Dollars in PV, Mazatlan, Cabo?

I've traveled in Mexico before and everyone in the tourist places seems to take American dollars. Is that also true in the Mexican Riviera towns, or do we need to get some pesos? We plan to buy from some street vendors, not just cruise ship recommended shops.

We've visited PV, Mazatlan and Cabo the last 3 years and vendors love American dollars. Never had a problem getting change back in American currency either. These are great ports. Enjoy!

We had no problem anywhere using U.S. currency. Some vendors will say they only have change in peso's but with a little proding and the possibility of you walking away from the deal they seem to produce change for you. The only advice I would have for you is to have lots of small bills with you. After PV I made sure that almost all of my money I took to shore was in 1's, 5's, and 10's. If I was going to buy stuff from a store then I used my credit card.
