Don't bother getting local currency, U$ is accepted everywhere.

As per activities you can book it with credit cards.

You may exchange some local currency at the airport for tip purposes.

Allow me to re-frase, lempira is the local currency, but everywhere i went they will tell you the dollar amount, it got really hard for me to figure out the conversion every time! it was just easier to use dollars!!

So, you can use either or!

US Dollars are fine-everything at the resort is priced in them.

You can use USD, but it will be better if you buy lempiras. Of course don't change all at once because the change can be different the next day.

Hotel operates on both types of currency. We kept some of the local money as a souvenir. When you pay in US, they give you change in US.
