Exchange into Local Currency and Bring Lots of Change
Tourists from the United States can use their own US Dollars, but it is better to change into the local currency. Also, it is better to have lots of change in both cases. The US Dollar and the Jamaican Dollar are both accepted, but small bills and changes are always necessary.
If you see the prices in US Dollars, it would be better to reconsider staying there. This just means they are charging a bit more than other places. In case you think the services are not worth it, it is better to leave.
