    Using Credit card better? currency conversion rate better?

    Is it true that you get a better currency conversion rate in aruba if you use your credit card versus cash or debit?

    The Aruban Florin is pegged to the U.S. dollar.
    1.79 Afl, (or ƒ.) = $1.00 USD

    Check with your individual credit card companies for exact details, including foreign transaction fees (generally 3%) on transaction posted by the Aruban business, if in Afl.

    As far as I am aware, the only U.S. credit card company NOT charging the 3% transaction fee at this time is Capital One.
