Saint Kitts and Nevis Favorites: 17 reviews and 31 photos
Favorite thing: The official currency in Saint Kitts and Nevis is the Eastern Caribbean Dollar (EC$). This currency is used on almost all (former) English islands in the Eastern Caribbean:
- Antigua and Barbuda
- Saint Lucia
- Saint Kitts and Nevis
- Saint Vincent and Grenadines
Eight territories and countries use this currency, although they only have a total population of 600.000 people. Queen Victoria of England is still shown on the coins and notes of the EC$ as well as some nice images on the notes. Popular sights of the islands are highlighted on the back of the bills like the Trafalgar Falls of Dominica and the Brimstone Hill Fortress of Saint Kitts. Also, there is a small map on the back so you can see on which islands you can use the currency.
It is easier to use to EC$ when visiting Saint Kitts, but not necessary: the US Dollar is accepted everywhere as well. But of course the rates are always better when you pay in the official currency.
