Cash or Travelers Checks

We are headed RIU TB in less than a month today!! Should we bring all cash or 1/2 in travelers checks. Are traveler checks easy to use there?

Bring both cash & travelers cheques. It is easy to cash travelers cheques & exchange money at either the airport when you first arrive (though the airport is the more costly option) or exchange at one of the many cambios.

U.S. dollars are used frequently, but you will receive change back in Jamaican money which can become costly in the translation/exchange.

We have never taken travelers checks. Just cash and nothing larger than a $20.

When we travel we usually try and bring some cash but really mostly on a debit card. You can use them most anywhere and they usually give you the best exchange rate.
