The Oficina de Información Turística de los Andes, Málaga’s tourism office, is in the Casa de la Cultura Simón González Reyes (Monday-Friday 8 a.m.-noon, 2-6 p.m. Corner, Calle 13 and Carrera 10). Saturdays and vacation times you can find the staff, composed largely of SENA tourism students, at a booth on the main square, dispensing information about not only Málaga, but also Capitanejo and neighboring villages.

AN ATH, multi-network ATM is at Carrera 8 13-38. There is no place to cash travellers cheques, nor any casas de cambio, nor branches of Western Union or Moneygram.
