Some general questions, Staying at Fond Doux in March!

Hi Everyone!

My husband and I are staying at Fond Doux in March and will be renting a car to get around. I am curious about what we will need cash for... I assume that most restaurants will take credit but will watersports and things of that nature take them as well? What should we be preparing to pay for in cash? Also- should we convert our USD at the airport to ECD?

Since we are going to be driving we will need to get our licenses to drive around the island. Is that something we should do at the airport when we arrive? Red Tiger is picking us up at the airport so I was wondering if we need to give ourselves some extra time to do that stuff.

Thanks for helping- these forums really help since we have never traveled out of the country before!

The bigger, nicer restaurants will all take credit, but the smaller, local places probably won't. If you stop by a vendor on the road, make sure you have cash. Some of the watersports are just locals coming by and not attached to the hotel, so you will probably need cash for those as well.

I would use EC, so that means you could either exchange at the airport, or it is easy to hit an ATM and withdraw EC from your home account.
