Thread: USD or JMD?

  1. #1

    Default USD or JMD?

    The last time I was in Jamaica was 15 years ago and we used USD for all our transactions. Even in the craft market in Ocho.

    Is that still the case?

    Arrive next Thursday!!!!

    Hi, of course you can still use USD. Or you can charge things to your room and pay by credit card or USD on departure.

    Yes, US$ is used. Pricing is also in US$ unless you go to a grocery store.

    US dollars are accepted everywhere. Off resort you will get slightly better deals using jamaican dollars (for cabs, crafts restaurants bars etc.) They tend to round up if you us US dollars.
