Using a debit card (that pays all fees) at any bank ATM machine.

I don't know of any physical building that has an exchange in the area. If there are some I am sure the rate will be pretty bad.

Even an ATM card with fees will most likely be a lot better rate.

If you have US Dollars you can change them for Pesos at a Bank or a Casa de Cambio for the 2nd best rate. They both will tell you what their exchange rate is. You can also change US Dollars at most places of business. That rate will be less but they will also tell you what rate they exchange at.

As stated above the best exchange rate you can get is to use your ATM card at an ATM machine. (It will pay you the exact exchange rate for that moment in time minus a small fee) If your ATM bank charges you a transaction fee that will cut into your rate.

The current rate is +18P to 1D.

As for myself, I have always accepted Mexico as an Amusement Park. Pay to play.

You can also exchange dollars for pesos at the Pemex at Plaza Arricefes.  They post the exchange rate above the attendant station.  It's very convenient.
