 Currency:
The official currency of Dutch St. Maarten is the Netherlands Antilles florin or guilder (NAF). On French St. Martin the official currency is now the Euro. The US Dollar is also widely accepted on both sides and there is usually no need to exchange your dollars. Yahoo! has a page for currency exchange rates - note that you won't receive rates as good as you see there - you should expect to lose a few percent in any exchange.
