EC dollars or East Carribean Dollars


The EURO is accepted everywhere on the island but the official currency is the EC $ (East Caribbean Dollar.)

1 euro is equivalent to between EC$3.30 and EC$3.70. This is the most suitable currency to use for daily shopping for items such as fruit, vegetables and fish.

You will find it difficult to obtain EC$ in Europe and we don't recommend bringing US dollars either. However, there is a Bureau de Change at Lamentin airport in Martinique and there are also cashpoints (ATMs) in the Grenadines (Béquia, Union and Saint Vincent) and in Sainte-Lucie (Rodney Bay and Marigot Bay).
