Are Credit Cards accepted in Mal Pais/Santa Teresa

Hi,

I Was wondering how well accepted are credit cards in Mal Pais / Santa Teresa Area?.

I'm Travelling this February for the second time to this beautiful country and I wondered if I can use them in(shops, restaurants, hotels) as we did in Tamarindo.

Thanks a lot for your help!!!

Tours, hotels, and some restaurants will accept cc, but e prepare to hit the ATMs for cash or bring some cash with you. Make sure you ask your hotels and tours if they do ahead of time, or if they offer discount for cash.

...and remember, for each credit card transaction, your bank will likely charge you a 2.8-3% fee
