    There dollar is much higher then Canadas.


    Canada = 83. cents out of the dollar.
    So I would be losing .17 cents for every dollar out of 200. :ohnoes:


    give or take a few cents.

    you'll have about $160 american
    you won't "lose" much, as it's still has similar buying power to $200...lol

    the only amount you'll lose is teh difference between the trading value and the banks rate(yes the bank makes money off exchanging money for you)

    see my above post.
    you can convert back any money you have left over.
    you do not "lose" any money, in fact your american money will have MORE buying power then any canadian money you have with you.

    No. The banks all charge a percentage of the money you convert.

    it means you'll blow through $200 cdn very quickly.
    you also don't HAVE to use your bank, call around, see who gives the best rates

    I've never been down south, so I figured 200$ should be fine.

    prem alcohol tends to add up
    it's so tasty to get good expensive tequila for like $3 a shot.
    tips, incedentials, etc.
    you should get off the resort for at least a day experience the place where your going. Other wise why spend so much money for somethign you can do in the summer at home.
