I just went to my local bank, Wells Fargo, and just picked up some Lats for an upcoming trip. Didn't do it through credit card, but they were able to get me them in about a week. Not every branch does it, but your local 1 can point you in the right direction.

Think you must ask this to your bank.

There are plenty of ATM and exchange offices in airport and Riga.

Using an ATM is easy and you can withdraw Lats without problems. Just be sure to tell your bank you'll be in Latvia so they don't block your account for unusual activity. Also if your PIN is a word, learns its numerical equivalent, since most ATMs in Europe only have numbers, not letters.
