We're going to St. Martin next month and don't have any clue as to how much cash vs. using our credit cards we should plan on. For example, using round numbers - if we're planning to have $1,000 to spend -- would you get $500.00 cash and plan on using your CC for the other $500 or would you take less cash (maybe only $100) and use your VISA CC for everything else? I've heard some places may not take credit cards ....
Also -- when you go to the beach, pool or snorkling ---- what do you do with your cash/credit cards, camera?
Any advice would be appreciated.
