You may have to ask your bank to authorise withdrawals before you leave the UK and amounts may be limited. There is only one ATM (2014), beside the airfield on Big Corn, so it is best to bring dollars and córdobas cash with you. Obtain your local currency needs before travelling to the Corn Islands.
