how much to exchange - 03/04/06 07:34 AM

Does anyone have a suggestion of how much money to exchange? We are traveling from Belize City straight to Flores and then Tikal for one night. How many Quetzals(?) would you suggest we get for Guat.? When we leave Guat, we are then traveling to San Ignacio for one night and the Jaguar Paw Lodge for 2 and would like to stop at the Belize Zoo on the way back to the airport for our flight to San Pedro. How many Belize $ would you suggest we get? Can we use US $ in San Pedro? Thanks in advance for your wonderful advice!!!!!!!!!!!

If you're only going to the ruins while in Guatemala I wouldn't exchange more than $30 US, that should cover food and drinks. I changed two or three times that and ended up with a pocketful of Quetzals when I came back to Belize. The few shops I stopped in along the route from San Ignacio to Tikal all took the US dollar, and at a more favorable rate than the Quetzal.
