Do hotels and dive shops take Visa, or do yo need to bring cash? And are USD accepted everywhere?

We just returned from CC a few days ago. Although a lot of places accept credit cards, a lot also charge a 5% fee for using credit. Everyone accepts Traveler's checks and cash at a 2 to 1 exchange.

Don't bring to many bills over $20, it will be easier to get change and you won't have a pocket full of BZ.

To avoid the 5% credit card fee, Atlantic Bank here on Caye Caulker will do cash advances on your Visa or Mastercard for a $3bz charge per transaction, no matter how large the cash advance is.
Also, many businesses are struggling to get their merchant accounts, its not as easy or simple as it is in the U.S.
