Customs Costs

In General do Carribean Customs require Cash Money or will Credit Cards or US Checks work. Do I need to bring my Kugerands??? Russ

In the eastern Caribbean, local currency is preferred, although US dollars are generally accepted. Change will be in local currency. I've never seen anyone use credit cards, and as far as I know, US checks are not going to be accepted anywhere for anything.

That's better than US customs. They want the exact amount and won't take anything else. I think my last fee was $23. They wouldn't take $25 even when I said put the two bucks in some charity box. I knew better than to say put it in the coffee fund. Had to walk to a bank and get change.
