What is the currency in the The Bahamas and do I need to exchange my money?

0

The legal tender is the Bahamian dollar (B$1), which is equivalent in value to the U.S. dollar. Both U.S. and Bahamian dollars are accepted interchangeably throughout the islands. Some Bahamian currency and coins are are considered novelties and make good souvenirs such as the square 15ยข coin and the $3.00 bill. Note: The casinos and most shopkeepers will not exchange currency. If you pay in US dollars, you will usually get US change. If you pay in Bahamian dollars, you will get Bahamian currency in return. If you have a large amount of Bahamian money near the end of your stay it would be wise to exchange it at a local bank, or your hotel.
