Which currency?

Post by Pj11 » Sun May 12, 2019 10:01 am

Hi,

We are comi g from the UK in 6 weeks. I am just wondering which currency is best to take please?

I have seen some other websites which advocate US dollars then others that say Jamaican dollars.

Thanks in advance

US$ is accepted everywhere on the Island but when vendors/pubs give you change back it will be in Jamaican$ at a less than favorable exchange rate. So since you are changing currency you might as well go Jamaican.
