    Default Hundred dollar bills

    Are there any problems with breaking a hundred dollar bill on island?
    I am thinking specifically of doing so at a bank.
    Am I better off bringing smaller bills?

    I have used $100 bills many times on Bonaire, no issue, no problem. Going to a bank is not necessary.

    Anymore, a $100 bill doesn't buy you much. Since the founding of our Federal Reserve one hundred years ago the dollar has lost 97.5% of its value, by design.

    I agree. No problem. In fact, when I went to one of the ATM's in Hato, it gave me three crisp $100 bills when I requested $300. Surprised me a bit!

    Default Breaking Hunnert's

    We were on Bonaire a few weeks ago. The folks at the Gio's gelato store had NO problem breaking a hundred--in fact--it seemed as though it was commonplace for them!

    100's are widely circulated and quite common here.

    I left a lot of them on island over the last three weeks.

    LOL, but maybe not as many as diving elsewhere on this planet!
