ATM problems in Uruguay

Jump to last reply

We arrived in Uruguay and tried to get money from ATMs in the Redbanc and Redbrou networks. We tried varying amounts from 1000 pesos - about $50 - to 5000. No luck at machines in bank lobbies, grocery stores, or even the casino in Punta del Este (we figured those would take anything, even from foreign banks.). I read online that the Citibank machines would take cards from the US, but they didn't have any machines. We finally gave up and got a Visa cash advance when the Pesos we obtained with US dollars ran out. Any advice, other than to carry dollars when traveling in Uruguay?
