ATM / money problems in Guatemala

Jump to last reply

I mentioned this on my last minute' thread but thought it warrented reposting.

Two banks in Guatemala have collapse - a third may follow according to the owner of the B&B I'm staying at in Antigua. Quetzals are in short supply in certain areas - ATMs aren't working - bank lines are long. Travelers checks were recommend by the B&B owner. Check Lonely Planet Thorn Tree. Here's the latest post:

"...There is alot of problems in Guatemala with money. Apparently the banks called in all the old notes to replace them but did not have the pàper to print new ones. So the ATM machines are regularly empty and in some banks they are limiting the amount you can draw at any one time. So take TRavellers cheques in US dollars. If you carry alot of cash you are a walking target ! The locals are getting aware that gringos need money and if there is none in the banks then they must be carrying alot!..."
