Credit Cards & ATMs:
ATMs are reliable and found in all of the big cities and most of the small towns. However, charges on foreign cards are expensive, so you’ll want to take a card that doesn’t charge you each time you withdraw. Visa, Maestro, Diners Club, and Cirrus/Mastercard are the most commonly accepted credit cards in the country.
