If you just go down and roam, the the rates are here:

For data, if you are postpaid, that will be about $0.01/Kb which works out to $10.24/MB. A day of just browsing websites could cost you a few hundred or even thousand dollars. If you are watching videos or using data intensive videos,  expect to pay thousands per day.

 

You can also get data (and/or voice and/or text) roaming packs that give you access to somewhat cheaper rates. Data passes are here:

Still very expensive, but less so. I would still recommend you very closely monitor your usage. I would actually recommend you avoid all non-emergency usage in the US and use only wifi when available.
