Money & costs
Though the main unit of currency is the Surinamese dollar (SRD), some businesses quote prices in euros. Most banks (7am-2pm Mon-Fri) accept major foreign currencies, but you may run into difficulty trying to change Guyanese dollars and sometimes even Brazilian reais.
Only RBTT Bank ATMs accept foreign cards, and credit cards are accepted (often for a fee) at major hotels and travel agencies but hardly anywhere else. The country is trying to increase credit-card acceptance but has a way to go.
