    3. Where should I buy my booze? (beer, wine, hard liquor)

    every place takes us $$
    sometimes the change they give you is in FLORINS
    bring that change with your receipt to the custoer service booth and they gladly exchange it back to US $
    (Ling, Certified, Hong King, )

    all price tags on all goods in the grocery stores are priced in FLORINS
    and the conversion is done at check out

    I love the whole island, so it's hard to choose, but if I have to then I would say baby beach & the natural bridge area
