Use the ATM to get your currency in Spain, Almuñécar in particular

Check with your bank for the fees associated with withdrawing currency in Spain.  If you are American, you are in luck with the Charles Schwab account, as they reimburse all ATM fees internationally.  Check your home country to see what deals you can find.  It is so much easier to take the money out at a machine, as there aren’t really any money exchange places locally.  You can exchange money in some of the banks, but many times they require you have an account with them.
