7 Countries, to exchange money/currency?

Jump to last reply

Hey everyone!

So I'm off to Central America for 9 weeks!

In that time I will pass through the following 7 countries:
Mexico, Belize, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica & Panama.

The longest time I will spend in any one country is Mexico (about 2-3 weeks) and Panama (2 weeks).

I'm planning on taking 2 Visa cards with me (one credit, one debit) and some USD.

Any tips on managing currencies as I move through the different countries?
I'm assuming if I use USD they would give change in their respective currency.

Any money/safety advice at all really would be appreciated.

Thanks as always! :)

I am on a tour and all accommodation has been previously paid for.
