AIS, Mastercard, Visa, Unionpay, Oceancard and Transcard credit cards are accepted at banks, CADECAS and ATMs, as long as they have not been issued by US banks or their affiliates. You can withdraw cash from ATMs in national currency, respecting the current exchange rate of the different currencies, according to the fluctuation in the world market.

Bank cards are the safest way to carry money. However, I recommend you bring cash, since the number of establishments in the province that accept debit and credit cards is limited.

You can buy in stores using your cards, through the POS service, applied at the current exchange rate.

If you are staying in private homes, you must have cash as this is the only accepted payment method.
