Depends on how much you like to shop and how easily you are persuaded to purchase items from vendors. It also will depend on your bardering skills. I'd say $100 per adult per day would be enough to have a real enjoyable trip. Of course you could get by for less or spend much more.

ckota1, we took $100 in $1 bills for a full week for me and my wife to the Starfish in June.

We started doing this several years ago because when buying something small, or paying a cab, or tipping, it seems that the vendor never has change. While they may be totally honest when saying that, having a fistfull of ones allways does the trick.
