The cadeca in the commercial centre is already there (on the left if you are looking straight ahead to the Centre). You can look through the window - at present there is nothing there except a concrete counter. So, it might take a while:)

Ah that's what I was asking about thanks carribean_breeze - so it's not that the Bank near the Clínica is/was closed but an additional one being built elsewhere.

That's a shame to hear that the hotel Cadeca's charge an additional 3%.

An official Cadeca SHOULD be line ball with a bank.

Conchesdojump - so is it a Cadeca or a bank (as c_b posted)?

Dan we were able to change money, we just had to be patient :-) If you feel more comfortable changing it at the airport then I would do that ... however we never do LOL.

Have a good holiday!!

The cadeca in the commercial center is where the "mercado" was last year but still not open. The mercado is now across from the cadeca.
