Money in Jamaica

Jump to last reply

This seems like a simple question, but I'm not finding anything on a search and I haven't traveled in the Caribbean for years. .

We'll be at the new Hyatt Zilara resort (all inclusive) for four nights. Obviously everything there will be covered or charged to our credit card. I'm not sure if we'll even leave the resort, unless we do a day tour or hire a driver or rent a car for one day. Will we need any Jamaican cash at all? We've been told to take lots of US singles for tips at the resort, which always used to go against my grain, preferring to tip in local cash, but I guess US dollars really are preferred there.

So I'm mainly asking, should we get maybe $50 (US) just for any incidentals? ATM at the airport?
