I am sorry to bring this up again, but researching prior answers seems to leave me confused about one thing:
I understand there are ATMs in terminals one and three at SJD airport. I have always used the ATM's around Mexico in CUN and PVR airports because they are regular ATM's that are bank affiliated, so I can land, get pesos at a normal rate, and be on my way. They were not physically attached to a bank but they were santander, banamex, etc. major-bank affiliated.
So, Are the SJD airport ATM's "regular ATMs" affiliated with a known bank or not - I have seen different information on these boards. I generally know to avoid sucker ATM's, (it's the same way in a las vegas casino) but I don't know what the nature of these ones in the airport are.
Problem is I am staying in the corridor - once I leave the airport it could be several days before I can get to either town to go to a bank ATM, and I want to have money for tips, the bus, etc. So I would like to use the airport machines if they are not a total rip-off.
thanks for any clarification from someone who has recently been.
