Dollar – Reals Exchange
Something that makes a difference for international travelers is the exchange rate: It is now improved for the internationals coming from USA. The current rate for North Americans is 2.4 Reals to the dollar. Only a year ago it was around 1.8 reals to the dollar. Also, it is not a good idea to assume that you can exchange money in Abadiania as the laws about who is able to perform those exchanges in Brazil is in the process of changing. This is all tied into the economic stresses of the currency markets and the world economy. So, those coming to Abadiania would be safer to bring cash, exchange it in the bank or ATMs in the airport, and not depend on ATM machines or exchange offices in Abadiania.
