currency exchange

Visiting st lucia in January. Is it best to exchange my money before I arrive or wait until I get to the island?

Wait until you get to the island. It is a fixed rate (so never changes) exchange of $2.70 EC to $1 US. You probably won't get that rate but it will most likely be very close. You can exchange at the airport, at a bank or at some of the resorts.

you will get $1Us - #2.67 at the banks and $1-$2.50 on the street (local vendors, etc. )

Easiest to change it when you arrive as needed or to change a smaller amount and use the ATM as needed so you are not carrying a large amount of cash around.

There is a bank at the airport so you can change right upon arrival - exchange rates are the same at every bank, all over the island.

Enjoy your visit!
