Can You Use U.S. Dollars in the Caribbean?
If you're an American planning a cruise to the Caribbean, you may be wondering if you need to exchange money or if U.S. dollars will work on the various islands you'll visit. Since each port you'll stop in is in a different country, it would certainly get confusing trying to exchange dollars for all those different kinds of currencies.
The good news is that U.S. dollars are accepted throughout most of the Caribbean.
You can also use traveler's checks and credit cards in most places. So there's really no need to change your money for the island's currency unless you want some colorful souvenir bills to bring back home.
