Credit cards in Costa Rica

For those of you who have done the Costa Rica trip, did you find that credit cards were accepted pretty universally? I'm trying to decide how much local currency I should bring. Thanks!

We went to Costa Rica on our own and either paid with a credit card or paid with American dollars. We were there 10 days in various locations and never had any Costa Rican currency.

I can second this...U.S. dollars were widely accepted when we traveled to Costa Rica last summer (not with ABD, though). Bring small bills, $1 $5, $10, $20 because they are wary of higher denominations. We notified our credit card companies of travel plans and were able to use them at hotel check-outs, big restaurants, etc, but we used U.S. dollars whenever we could.
