It is depending where you are. One thing is sure, never change your currency at Hotel or restaurant, unless exchange ratio (cost to you) is not a problem and convert no more than 75% of cash you think you need. Otherwise at the end of trip, may have large sum of foreign currency leftover, and you want to convert back to $, you will pay again for conversion. Other is use CC, let merchants pay for the conversion fee.
