Toronto is a city of contrasts in every way, even its weather. In Winter the temperatures reach below zero, so you have to be ready when you go to the street and take warm clothes. But luckily they have underground streets that allow you to walk without spending too much time in the cold. During summer the thermometers reach high temperatures due to its proximities with Ontario Lake, which raises sultry air. Rain is a constant in Canada, though the rainy season is in autumn.
Canadian Dollar (CAD). Not to be mistaken with American dollar! Even so, in Toronto most of the stores downtown allow you to pay with American dollars. Most of the stores accept credit cards, although it is recommended to always carry some cash. Remember that prices in Canada are always marked without taxes. In the Ontario area, you must add a 13% to all of expenses. At the airport, hotels and all over the city there are banks and ATMs to get some cash. You’d better contact your bank before traveling so you don’t have problems once you’re there.
