Ollantaytambo Money Exchange

We are flying into Cusco early on a Saturday morning (7 AM) and plan on heading straight to Ollantaytambo. I will be getting soles at the Lima airport from an ATM but expect that they will be larger bills. Is there a place in Ollantaytambo where I will be able to get smaller bills on a Saturday.? I haven't seen that there is a bank there ...??

You can easily exchange your larger bills for smaller ones at the money exchange desk (cambio) in the airport, just after customs. We did that & they didn't charge. For that matter, you could also bring $$ cash & exchange it there......

Not much in Olly, change before you leave Lima.

Why don't you just bring an ATM card? I found this to be the easiest way to manage money in Peru. There are a lot of cards that have free international ATM...

Just a thought. Carrying cash scares me. At least a card is protected by a PIN and your companies' protections... Cash- when it's gone, it's gone.
