Currency

We are cruising in to Ocho Rios for a family vacation and was wondering about the currency if we should bring all dollars bills or what we notice something says $5.00 dollars in US but it's not the same in Jamaica. Need help to be happy tourists and not get taken. Thanks!

Just got back form Jamaica. Almost everyone wants USD. Don't waste your time exchanging IMO.
