Don't bother with travellers' checks; a lot of places won't accept them any more (fraud is apparently rampant). Take your credit card instead.

ATMs and credit cards are a better, easier choice. But Traveller's Cheques are still used ... not as common.

Credit card and ATM will do you fine. You'll want to carry some cash to accommodate the small businesses and venders, and the few other places that don't accept credit.
