They take us dollars everywhere, sometimes in the grocery stores they will give you change in florins but will convert, for you, at the desk infont of the stores.

Exactly what Sharon said above. No need to convert money - just be aware that sometimes prices are in Florins but the stores will convert to U.S. Dollars for you. Also some restaurants will have both prices listed on your bill so make sure you're paying the correct amount for Dollars.

Do you get a better rate paying with Florins?

The official rate at which banks accept US dollar is Awg. 1,77 (Florins) and checks at Awg. 1,78. The rate of exchange granted by shops and hotels ranges from Awg. 1,75 to Awg. 1,80 per US dollar. The difference is very small and the rate is "fixed" so there's no need to change money.
