Travelers may be used to paying with credit cards everywhere. In Bogota, it is very important to take into account that this way of travelling may not apply.

Most of stores, museums, restaurants do not take credit cards, so you may want to carry cash with you.

Some stores take credit cards, but only for the exact amount of the sale or for a minimum purchase amount. Only in hotels or high level restaurants take credit card, but you have to ask or look for the sign with the visa or mastercard on the show window of each business.

Make sure you know your options before your purchase.
