Getting money from an ATM. That's something that can cost you money. Depending on where you get it. I've seen ATM's that would charge up to 4 dollar if you'd use them. Just ad up the cost you're own bank will charge you for using an ATM outside the country.

Unique Suggestions: If for some reason you really have to take many out of an ATM take a larger sum, because then the overal cost will be less.

Fun Alternatives: You'd be smarter to go to a large shop like K-mart or something and use the cash-back option when buying sometime (for instance some chewing gum :-)). This is free of charge, the only thing you'd pay would be the charges of your own bank. That will save you money you can spend elsewhere.
