I'll be landing in SAP enroute to a small village in Cortes later this week for an eight day mission trip. From what I've been told, the "best" way to exchange your money is with the guys standing on the street corner outside the airport. Supposedly they are all licensed by the government and all charge the same rate, Up until a few weeks ago, the lempira was fixed against the dollar, but now I understand they have cut it loose and it floats.
Does anyone know what a good exchange rate is and the best way to go about this before I leave their airport?.
Unfortunately, where I'll be staying does not have an ATM and the nearest bank is not open at reliable times. Most of the stores and sodas are little mom and pop affairs and either don't want to or won't take credti cards. Others who have gone on similar trips say cash is about your only alternative. So it looks like I'm stuck exchanging dollars for lempira and visa versa on the way back. Any suggestions are much appreciated.
