Credit Cards

All major credit cards are accepted by hotels, restaurants, and souvenirs. Some taxis will even take credit cards. Be prepared that credit card companies often charge a service charge or percentage as well as deducting for the exchange rate they think is appropriate.

Travelers Checks

U.S. dollar traveler’s checks should be exchanged at banks or exchange offices, as very few businesses will accept them.
