Everything is charged in US Dollars as Darryl rightly states. You only really need these for staff tips or day trips to inhabited islands if you intend purchasing souvenirs though. The rest of your expenses whilst on your island will be charged to your room and generally paid by credit card at the end of your stay.

Cheers

Rob

Reading some of the reviews you have to pay for snacks. What else is not included in the All Inclusive please?
