I have to disagree. In my experience you should exchange. You get charged more whether it's by the chicas or by any of the businesses if you use us$. Generally it's always cheaper in pesos.

It would be an interesting test case... Negotiating in USD vs RD

But pretty sure if you asked a chica how much she wants in USD the first thing out of her mouth will be $100.

Exchange your dollars, or get cash from a bank machine. You should get somewhere between 46.50 and 48.50 or the way i work... I call it near enough "50".

A 50RD note is (near enough) a buck. 1000RD is (near enough) $20US.

A beer is between 100 and 200RD. Between (near enough) 2 and 4 bucks.

It really is not complicated. Except late, when the beer goggles are on, and you can't easily tell the dif between a 100 and 1000 note.

But its ok... Everyone will be VERY helpful if you give a 100 note by mistake.

Exchange your money

You are going to be quoted in RD so pay in RD

You will very likely get shorted on change if you try to pay everything with US dollars over RD

Trying to pay in US immediately marks you to be taken advantage of

You will pay the entrance fee of $10 in US and can pay the taxi from the airport in US as that is what they will quote you and most hotels will have quoted your rate in US so you can pay in US as well but everything else pay in RD

Solid advice. Those are the only things I ever pay in U.S. dollars. Everything else is pesos.

Of course U.S.Dollars is best for the girls and not for you...When in D.R. use D.R. pesos....Always pay in D.R. money (Pesos)....Don't exchange your money at Airport you get the worst rates there....

It's less expensive when you pay in PESOS...

Its almost always best to exchange into pesos. Sometimes you can make a better deal in dollars but I rarely find this.

Some people have to pay certain things in dollars. They will take their pesos to the exchange house or bank and buy dollars with their pesos in these cases. If you can find the value of buying dollars with pesos for the day sometimes you can make a slightly better deal with people who need to buy dollars to pay a bill or something that requires dollars.

These cases do come up but are rare and most tourists will not come across it.

It's the 200 bill that has a similar pinkish color to the 1000 bill...

Dealing with money is simple

Put your big bills 1,000 and 500 in one pocket  (I hate the 2,000 bills and won't take them unless they make me)

and the smaller 100, 200 and 50 in another pocket.

That way you will never mix them up

I always wear shorts with zippered pockets
