Below is an excerpt from RIU Palace Riveria Maya's website. I don't remember this law being in place last year. Anyone know why this change took place?
"Currency exchange: due to new goverment legislation all Riu Hotels Resorts in Mexico will be unable to receive cash payments in US dollars. All payments are now required in Mexican pesos in order to be received in the resort.The new regulation also indicates that it won´t be possible to provide currency exchange services in USD within the resort anymore. This new regulation will not affect transactions in other currencies. ATM available in the hotel to withdraw Mexican Pesos"
