well that is good information, if my bank at home knows what they are talking about, they say we can each get $300 (for a 3% surcharge) at the going rate which is $126.35 today. So apparently ?? it might be to my advantage for us each to bring $300 in Jamaican money. My bank here did tell me that I can't request what denominations of JA money I will get. I'll get what they send which will probably be big bills. Thanks for the information!
