Hi does anyone know what the dominican peso is to the pound at the moment ?

And how much spending money do you think we will need going for 2 weeks all inclusive so just for some excursions and presents?

Thanks in advance

The Dominican peso is 65 to the pound at the moment but what you will get at a foreign exchange place in the U.K. won’t be anywhere near that. The rate at our hotel was 57 peso to the pound but every hotel will be different. I would advise taking US dollars as the vast majority of things are priced in dollars. Get yourself a decent fee free credit card (I use the Halifax Clarity which is completely fee free and did give me 65 peso to the pound last week) just in case you go somewhere you can’t pay in dollar (eg supermarkets).

No one can really tell you how much you will need for excursions or presents as only you know if you like to bring one person a fridge magnet or get half a dozen people a t-shirt, bag and bottle of rum. Same with excursions. How many do you want to do? Which do you want to do? It’s best to look at which excursions you want to do and it’s easy enough to find out the prices of them. Add this to how much you want to spend on pressies and this is a good starting point for spending money.
