The currency on Curacao is the Antillean guilder (ANG. or NAfl.), also called florins. The exchange rate is pegged to the U.S. dollar. The dollar is a legally recognized currency in Curacao as well. The change is then, however, usually given in Antillean guilders. Credit cards are accepted in most places - especially well known cards such as Visa, MasterCard and American Express.
