    Default Writing Checks At A Casa de Cambio...

    Who has done this and how easy is it. I live in Santiago and if anyone know of a Cambio where I might try my luck at cashing checks, I would appreciate knowing about it. I am running out of dollars and I soon will have to either use the Check Cards and Visas or find a place that will take my checks.

    Also, I have heard that there are ATM machines here that will pay in dollars...is that possible.

    Thanks.

    Exclamation mmmm

    I havent being on your situation but i suggest that you. to ...

    Try making all your transactions in one of the banks around the city
    (BHD,LEON,Progreso, or Santa Cruz)... if u need a "Casa de Cambio" look for one in the Yellow pages with international background ( like Vimenca Western Union)

    and go take a look at it ... you need confidence first ... that's what i would do ..

    There are casas de cambio in Santo Domingo that cash checks. I use two and was refered by a Dominican business person to both. I'm not sure if that is a prerequisite.

    Default Process...

    Can you elaborate on your experience. For example, did they take your check and immediately give you pesos at the daily rate? Did they charge you a fee for processing the check? One in Santiago would be great to hear about.
