If you would talk to your bank before you left , they would have told you to take cash and not use your card.

Usually small shops don't accept credit cards. And some of the other shops ask for a minimum purchase before accepting a credit charge. It always pays to bring cash with you. Thanks for posting your first review here.
Thank you for posting your review.
As for currency issues, we take currency from the various countries to which we plan travel. With all the skimmers and readers about, be sure to have a combination of currency and credit. As an aside, purchase an RFID blocking wallet.
I purchase a RFID wallet for my husband and me to take on the trip on 06/13/2015. He liked it so much he is still using the wallet. When it comes to my money, I will do anything to keep it safe.
