Money matters

Still a good while left for our hols, but a question regarding money.

Should we use a mix of US & Jamaican dollars? Would it be better to exchange to the Jamaican dollars while in Negril or change it in the US (or even at home).

"Should we use a mix of US & Jamaican dollars? "

What type of dollars you will be spending depends where you will be spending money in Jamaica. See the following

"Would it be better to exchange to the Jamaican dollars while in Negril or change it in the US (or even at home)."

If you determined from reading the reference above that you have a need for Jamaican dollars, do it in Jamaica. If you need to convert a Euro into a Jamaican dollar do it in Jamaica and not in Dublin or the US. For places to change it, and not change it, in Jamaica see the following

I usually exchange about $200 US to JA$ just for fun---most folks take US, even the smaller places on the road. There is an ATM near the roundabout in Negril that you can get JA$.

It is best to do the exchange in Jamaica at a local cambio. You will even get a better rate, also almost everyone takes usd. Another thing is that most people will quote their price in USD to you.
