How the pesos pile up

The peso has been the official currency of the Dominican Republic for over 150 years. Every peso is made up of 100 centavos (the Spanish word for ‘cent’), but coins for any value below 1 peso are not typically used as a result of inflation.

It is a good idea to keep a small collection of coins with you to be used for tipping; this way, you can be sure your tip will go directly to your waiter or waitress. A tip of around 10% is the usual etiquette and this may sometimes be added directly onto your bill.

Commonly used banknotes

The notes you’re likely to use the most are for the value of: 50, 100, 200, 500 and 1,000 Dominican pesos. Notes for 2,000 pesos have been in circulation since 2000. As recently as ten years ago, the USD (American dollar) was also accepted in the Dominican Republic, but this is no longer the case. Even if you could use your dollars last time you were here, make sure you don’t bring any with you this time.
