ATM or banks in Montezuma

Are there any banks or ATMs in or near Montezuma. I was told the best place to exchange US currency is in Puntarenas

Best place is Puntarenas (I find that hard to believe)? Never heard such a thing.

There is an ATM in Montezuma. It's often empty (so don't wait until the last minute). There are several in the nearby town of Cobano too.

Get some at the ATM at the airport (there are 2 ATMs by luggage pickup BEFORE you leave through security!) before you even get anywhere. DO the conversion in before you get there 100,000 colones is about $200 (it seems weird when you type it in).

I bring enough American ca$h for a few days (just in case) but use the airport ATM and before it starts to run out I get more. (Use the american cash to pay for hotel). Most everywhere will take US Dollars, but you never know the exchange rate they'll give you.
