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

Generally not recommended to use credit cards, and most stores won't have a card reader anyway. There are a few ATMs, but they won't always have cash. - Aug 2020

Don't even think about using a credit card. Maybe at one or two hotels. Get your cash at the hotel or bank. - Apr 2014

Ha hah ahahahahhah hahah hah ha ha.. oh that's a good one *wipes tear from eye* Umm, there are none. Other than Air France, no one takes credit cards here. Even if they did, your number would be out the door before you were. - Nov 2006
