Are credit cards widely accepted and safe to use locally? Are ATMs common and do you recommend using them? Are they safe to use?

Credit cards are accepted at some hotels and the Diplomatic Duty Free store. ATMs are very common, but are often not functioning for international cards. In my experience they are safe to use, however it is not recommended. - Nov 12, 2017
