Water Safety Make certain that sports equipment, including scuba equipment, that you rent or buy meets international safety standards.
If you use a beach without a lifeguard, exercise extreme caution. Drowning is one of the leading causes of death for Americans in the Caribbean.
Do not dive into unknown bodies of water because hidden rocks or shallow depths can cause serious injury or death. In some places, you may need to wear sneakers in the water for protection against sea urchins.
What to wear Strictly casual resort wear, especially during the day. Jackets and ties are almost never needed, but it is customary to dress up for the discos, and most nice restaurants and bars require men to wear shirts and slacks (some allow Bermudas). Bathing suits (particularly for women) are not to be worn away from swimming pools and beach areas. Shorts should never be worn when entering a church.

Though banks and casas de cambio (exchange houses) change most major currencies, US dollars are always easiest to change due to their economic stability on the global market and the proximity of the United States to Mexico.
Casas de cambio usually give exchange rates close to the rate given at banks, and ... more
