ATM's in tourist areas - Isla Verde

I would imagine that there are ATM's in the tourist area, specifically Isla Verde (Howard Johnson is where we are staying). I read that the hotel has the safe at the front desk and then on another webstie we read that there are safes in the room. On the off chance that the safes aren't in the room, we won't bring so much cash and get it as we need it.

When traveling, it is always recommended to use ATMs rather than bring tons of cash to exchange. The exchange will always be better at the ATM, plus is much safer. Just try to anticipate how much you need so you only end up taking money out a few times. There are plenty of cash machines around. Credit cards are accepted everywhere.

There is a Bank (Banco Popular) 3 minute walk from the Howard Johnson's that has an ATM. The hotel area of the Intercontinental/El San Juan also has numerous ATM's.

PR uses the US banking system. So they are plentiful, You can use credit cards most everywhere. I find I don't need much cash at all.

Thanks everyone. Just want to be sure we can get access to money when we need it.
