Payment Methods Accepted?

The payment methods accepted on island are slightly picky, so I wanted to share. Surprisingly enough, US cash is accepted by just about everyone. In fact, many people prefer it to EC cash. I’ve actually see more locals at the bank depositing US dollar bills than I see students. I’ve even tried to tip in EC and they ask for US.

Below are the payment methods accepted and not accepted on island:

EC currency*** Accepted
US currency*** Accepted
Visa Accepted
MasterCard Accepted
Discover Accepted by most
American Express Not accepted**

** Not accepted at grocery stores or restaurants; AmEx are only accepted at the Marriott, excluding American Express gift cards.

***The Marriott does not accept cash in US or EC; payment methods accepted are only room charge or credit/debit cards.
