FAQ Details - Currency & Money Exchange

What is the local currency and the exchange rate in the Dominican Republic?

The official currency is the Dominican Peso (RD$) - the actual exchange rate is about 1:37 (1 U$ Dollar = 37.50 Pesos)


Can i pay in U$ Dollars or Euros in the Dominican Republic?

Although the U$ Dollar is not an official currency in the Dominican Republic it is accepted almost everywhere - however you are much better on paying in Dominican Pesos - normally if you pay in U$ Dollars a much worse exchange rate will be applied than the rate you would get at an exchange facility or a bank - same for Euros but even worse exchange rates will be applied


Where should i change U$ Dollars in Dominican Pesos?

You can change at banks or Money Exchange facilities which you will see everywhere especially in Tourist Areas. Actual exchange rate is 1.00 U$ = 38.20 RD$. Do not change money inside the SDQ airport at "Globo Cambio" - they rip you off!

All 15 of us--with multiple arrivals and departures over a two week period and several Dominican Shuttles-organized excursions--could not have been happier with our experience! Our time in Las Terrenas was amazing largely thanks to the reliable, safe services provided by the extremely knowledgeable people at Dominican Shuttles. I would not hesitate for a moment in recommending them to any group, large or small, traveling to the Dominican Republic. Thank you for making our trip so incredible, Thomas and staff!
This was my first trip to the DR and I can say that Thomas at Dominican Shuttles really helped make my trip a very successful one. Yes the service provided was great but it was more than that. If I had questions as far as places to eat or places to stay Thomas was just a quick email away with helpful information. You get much more than just a shuttle or driver when working with these guys. Make sure to talk to Thomas to book your travel. He will absolutely help you out in every way he can. Highly highly recommend.
