The American owner of BB's stopped taking travelers checks last year. He cited in one of his newsletters that the banks in his area stopped accepting them. Don't know why. Its possible the banks in Santo Do might not have this policy but I wouldn't chance it. Its a bit nerve racking to leave mucho cash in your hotel room's safe, I realize. I brought $2000 USD cash with me for my last trip and fretted a bit about that but I was in a safe hotel in Sosua and of course had no concerns with BB's security, but in SDQ I would be somewhat concerned as I haven't been in town for a while and don't know the various chica friendly hotels that are frequently mentioned in earlier posts.Originally Posted by Vincelee76
Let's see what the others have to say about this. Anybody?
