Exchange rates may vary slightly at stores and hotels. You can find daily exchange rate information at one of our local banks.
Euros are accepted at some hotels and restaurants, but unlike U.S. dollars, they do not circulate freely. Exchange rates for other currencies are posted at banks and listed in the daily papers.
Major credit cards are accepted almost everywhere on the island.
ATM machines can be found all over the island at major population centers and at the airport. To recognize an ATM machine, look for the signs “Bankomatico” or “Geldautomaat.” Most ATM ‘s offer the option to withdraw in local currency or US dollars.
