I just used RIA money transfer service. I sent myself $200 and then 10 days later $500. From my U.S. bank account to Caribe Tours, delivered in U.S. dollars. They used a security check a lot like Paypal does. The transfer took about 6 days to complete. The charge for the service was the same for each transfer and is the same for $2000.00. Two bucks per transfer! Yes...two dollars net per transfer. Xoom is fast but I do not need fast.

Ria 43.00
Xoom 42.45 (abusadores)
BAnco popular 43.60

Banco Popular wires cost usd60+300 pesos, so difference is usd58+ 300 pesos (is about 2829 pesos).

2829/0.6 = 4715, so below 4715 wire Ria is cheaper, good find! Most of the time I don't want to wait, but it's defintely an option.

I us3 RIA office in switzerland ( not by internet ). 5chf by transfer up to 2000 chf ( but they give out vouchers for free transfer, a friend of mine that works there gave me 30 + ). Arrives the same day, delievered to the house. Good rates ( cant remember ), but they send you SMS/email for days with good rates.
Even better, I got to know one of the employees. I phone him, he sends the money, I send someone round to pay him a couple of days after.

All in all, best option for me.

Awesome site and the price can't be beat. The only problem is that most of the time when a family member calls they need the money ASAP.

I just checked the site and US$ to us$ is $2 only. My question is if it's from a US Bank account to deposit to a Dom Bank account, still in US$ does it take longer for processing, if anyone knows.
