The Mauritanian Ouguiya (MRO) is the official currency of Mauritania. Euros and US dollars are both fairly easy to exchange and it is necessary to carry wads of cash because credit cards are seldom accepted. It is difficult to find ATMs in Mauritania, even in the capital, and the country is not well connected to the international banking system, which means most credit cards won't work at ATMs. Special international ATMs are available at BNP and Societe Generale in both Nouakchott and Nouadhibou.
