Eight out of the nine eastern Caribbean states use the XCD as their legal currency. The East Caribbean Dollar is pegged to the US Dollar at a rate of $1 XCD = $2.7 USD. In many cases where a currency is pegged to the US Dollar it is often advantageous to take US Dollars as these are often better value than the local currency. With East Caribbean Dollars this is not the case. Although the US Dollar is widely accepted in hotels and restaurants, the exchange rate used is often so poor you are better off using the local currency. Many travellers have reported that Euros are also widely accepted.
