My wife and her friend visited the Island late June and 1st week of July. While there, they used their Visa Card at The Pirates Nest, at Divi Phoenix Sunset Restaurant and at the perfume store in the main building in Oranjestad.
This past week the statement arrived with over $3000 of fraudulent charges! The charges were made after they left the island at the following locations, neither of which they visited. Seasons Fashion II and Busters Garage.....there were 5 charges for Busters.....
Again this shows that "Cash is King" or Travellers cheques may be the way to go
