Hello all! This board has been very helpful! I'm planning for a one week trip to SP next month.

How should I carry money? Should I just bring a hundred and get the rest as I need it from an ATM? Or should I rely on my credit cards?

Is it safe to leave the money in the hotel safe? In my room? Carry it?

I usually bring $300-400 USD, then use credit cards when that runs out. You have options there, most places accept credit cards.

I'll let someone else answer that one but I will say, there is no need to bring ANYTHING of value aside from passports and money/credit cards. The dress is casual anywhere you go.

"No Shoes, no problem" I love that one!

I'm staying at BananaBeach I email them and they told me they would cash my traveler's checks so that the way I'm going will cash a few every day as needed.
