Are credit cards widely accepted and safe to use locally? Are ATMs common and do you recommend using them? Are they safe to use?
Some hotels take credit cards, but don't assume that all do! There are ATMs, which I use from time to time, but unless you have a local account, fees are quite high. - Apr 2019
No, just cash a check at the Embassy. - May 2016
Don't use them. Ever. - Dec 2015
Don't do it. - Apr 2014
This is a cash economy. Credit cards are accepted at the hotels if the machines are working. I have heard no complaints about ATMs, but have not used one myself. - Aug 2011
Don't. - Dec 2009
