another question.... visa and/or mastercard accepted...

We of course will be bringing cash for the fun smaller stuff, but if we are in a position where we would rather use plastic- can we? If we use travellers checks, when we cash them do we get US $ or Jamaican $ in exchange? How about the ATM's? ( not that we intend to spend all cash brought, but we have read here from many there is much to do while we are there, & we of course need $ for the trip home )

Plastic works fine wherever accepted which, seems to be everywhere. ATMs are costly so avoid them if you can. I like to call my Credit Card Company and let them know I will be in Jamaica. I have had my card declined because they thought thieves stole it and were booking a SCUBA dive for 6 people in Rose Hall Beach. Go figure.

Enjoy your trip,

Mark
