I found that small amounts of local currency was helpful for small purchases , for major purchases most reliable places accepted credit cards. The ship sold Forex at the Bureau (HAís name for Purserís Office).

Donít miss Machu Picchu( and take your altitude meds!); the Amazon is astonishing(if the ship goes there);the great cities are amazing; there is a very special contemporary art museum in the suburb of Hollywood in Montevideo; well there is so much to that great continent. Enjoy!

Hi, an excellent post but what do you mean by altitude meds. I was considering doing machine picchu but was worried about the altitude.
