1. Re: Currency

If you're buying currency before you travel, then US$ are usually the easiest. If you're buying on island (bank or ATM - resorts give an appalling rate), then EC$. You'll get change in EC$ either way. If you're staying AI and just paying for the odd trip or souvenir, US are fine. Credit and debit cards are widely accepted.

i found it easiest to use ec, less time needed to figure out what things cost and ec is excepted everywhere. good tip is to go to a bank for exchange, just went at the end of april/begining of may and exchange was 2.67 per us dollar

To all:

I am going next Saturday. Is there any ATM or office in the airport ( upon arrival) in where I can exchange dollars or do I have to go to a bank? I read that the banks not open on week -ends........still the case?

Thanks,

There is an ATM at the airport, and the Coolidge branch of ECAB (by the airport exit) is open until 11.30 am on a Saturday if you're arriving early.

Where are you staying? There may be an ATM on the way.

Otherwise, just bring some US cash, which is universally accepted.
