Cash or Card?

While establishments across Cartagena do increasingly accept credit and debit cards for payment, many still either only do so nominally or operate on cash alone. Cash will definitely be needed for smaller purchases, especially from street vendors. A relatively high service fee may be charged at some restaurants for card payments, so it's generally a good idea to check with the staff whether this is the case to avoid unpleasant surprises. ATMs are widely available; withdrawal fees will likely depend on your bank and the bank that operates the ATM. When choosing an ATM, go for ones that aren't in isolated locations, and make all your withdrawals during daylight hours.
