I'm spending a week in Negril this month, and there's two issues I'd like advise on...
1) What currency is best to take for spending money?
My Jamaican friend (who is against the use of USD in the country) says to take Jamaican dollars, but just about all of the prices I have seen quoted are in USD, and I'm wondering if that's what most hotels/restaurants/bars etc would prefer.
At the moment I'm considering having a mix of both currencies, but I'm wondering if it would be easier to just get USD here and then change some when we arrive in Jamaica...
2) How much spending money for two people for a week?
I was thinking in the region of £400 between us. We're not all inclusive and would like to do a couple of trips/excursions. We like to eat out and have a few drinks, but not in mega expensive places generally.
Any advice much appreciated!
