Three of us will be traveling to the Puerto Ayora in July for a week. Through my research, I have come across conflicting information regarding the ability to use credit cards, Atm's and traveler's checks.
We are flying into Guayaquil for 2 days before our trip to the Galapagos. There is a fair amount of information regarding recent crime and am not to comfortable carrying enough cash to pay for 3 adults in Ecuador for 10 days.
Some reports say that it is difficult to use traveler's checks, that you can't rely on ATM in Puerto Ayora and that if you do find a merchant/ restaurant that accepts CC, that they will charge you an extra 10%.
Can anybody give me the real scoop?
