ATMs are widely available in all major towns and cities. Major restaurants, shops, and hotels accept Visa, MasterCard, and EuroCard. However, credit cards are not widely accepted, particularly in remote areas and smaller establishments. Outside the main cities, it is advisable to carry a supply of local currency.
