The best way I have found to access funds is to have a credit balance in a Visa or Mastercard. That way you can draw virtually any amount up to the balance you have.
I have sailed all around the Indian Ocean from South Africa to Indonesia and stopped in some really dodgy places (financially speaking) and never ever had a problem drawing local cash.
