Well visiting Jamaica are you better off taking American currency or Canadian currency with you?

    Hi Robby,

    American currency is much more widely accepted in Jamaica.

    The exchange rate is also greater for the US dollar.
  • The Canadian currency has a higher value now than the US but less widely accepted. In any case you should on arrival go to a cambio and convert your currency to Jamaican dollars, as that is the best way to get the most spend per dollar.
