    Anything left over gets spent on tequila at the duty free shop.

    A lot! But most time we bring most home. We don't want to use our credit card unless we just absolutely have too.

    we always take $500.00. We take $300.00 in ones, and the rest in 5s and 10s, and no big bills. Smaller bills always are nice for spending and tips. Every year, we run into people who are out of 1s, because it is their first trip, and didnt know any better.

    We were there for 4 nights and took about $250...$100 of which was in ones. The omelette lady looked like I'd made her day when I'd give her $3 each day the wife and I had omelettes made. She was awesome.
