Money

Banco da Africa Ocidental (BAO) near the port is the only bank that reliably exchanges cash (US dollars or, preferably, euros). There are many moneychangers around the Mercado Central. Most are honest, but beware of scammers.

Supermercado Mavegro (201224, 201216; Rua Eduardo Mondlane; 3.30-6pm Mon, 9am-12.30pm & 3-6pm Tue-Fri, 9am-12.30pm Sat) Exchanges travellers cheques and cash, including US dollars.
