Hello everyone, I have a friend that says you get more for your buck with Pesos then you do with US Dollars. So carry both just to make sure. First check the currency rate, because they can change on a daily bases.
Hi Doreen! Look forward to seeing you! Neykia's not coming this time (sad face, real sad face) but I know I'm still going to have a blast cause so many of the Cancun crew are coming to the DR. :-)
Oh and if the DR is anything like Mexico, I noticed that at the shops they always charged more when you paid with US Dollars by really inflating the exchange rate (i.e. $10 in USD but only $8 in USD if you used pesos). So if you are going to be shopping with the street vendors, I think it would be a good idea to at least have pesos on hand.
All depends on what you want to buy...anything you purchase at the resort will be charged to your account and you pay that with a Credit Card at the end
If you just want spending money for if you go into town...most take US $...but usually you'll get pesos as changesometimes pesos will get you a better deal...but not always
