3. Don’t take out too much cash: It is important to take some cash to convert, but you don’t need tons of money. Just like in the U.S. you can pay for most things with a credit or debit card. Bring a small amount of cash, and make sure to tell the bank your traveling, so you can use your card.

4. Pack appropriately: Make sure you pack clothing and other items for all types of weather. Even if you look at the weather forecast ahead of time, something might change when you are actually there. Also bring clothing in-case you go out to a formal dinner or are just relaxing for the day.

5. Take advantage of guided tours: It can be exhausting to plan the whole trip by yourself. Plan a couple of guided tours and let the experts show you what the country has to offer.
