Hi blackruby

US travellers checks are accepted here so you should have no problem changing them.

You can also use Visa/Mastercards although only hotels, bigger shops and the more "up market" restaurants will accept them. Most jewellers will accept them. You can also use them (as well as your bank debit card) to draw cash from the many cash machines, most of which are now open 24 hours.

Agree with Rocknrollstar, we always take cash, we lock it in the safe and have never had a problem. We used credit cards in the jewellers with no problem. Whatever you do, do NOT go to a bank to the change the money unless you have about 2 hours to spare, stick to the hotel reception.
