"Money matters" Rio de Janeiro Favorite Tip by Dabs
Rio de Janeiro General: 267 reviews and 265 photos
Favorite thing: We used both our ATM and credit card (Visa) with no problems in Rio. We found several banks that accepted our ATM card on Av. NS de Copacabana, one street back from Av. Atlantica. I think the closest ones were Banco Popular and HSBC, not every machine at those locations accepted our card so look for the machines that have your cards logo on it.
I've seen suggestions that you not carry large sums of cash in Rio, we only took out R$200 at a time and I put my larger bills in a separate location from the smaller bills so that I was not flashing a large wad of cash. A lot of places can't make change so try to break larger bills at places like the supermarket or larger restaurants when you have the opportunity.
