Money & costs


At the time of writing there were no ATMs in Guinea-Bissau, and credit cards are not accepted anywhere. Euros are the easiest currency to exchange. US dollars are more difficult, especially outside Bissau.

The unit of currency is the West African CFA franc. The principal bank of Guinea-Bissau is the Banco da Africa Ocidental (BAO).

Tipping is optional.
