Banks and Exchange Services

The official currency is the Jamaican dollar, but few Americans bother to exchange money, since U.S. dollars are widely accepted. At this writing, an American dollar is worth roughly 90 Jamaican dollars. Most ATMs in Jamaica accept American ATM cards and will dispense either U.S. or Jamaican dollars. Major credit cards are widely accepted, although cash is often required at gas stations, in markets, and in many small stores.
