What is a good amount and the best/ safest way to bring funds on to the island? I have read through the faq's and it is only mentioned that I should have immediate funds on me for purchasing necessities and to arrange housing with the apartment landlords. Cashier's check, international money order, cash?? I plan on finding an apartment when I arrive in Dominica (which is about a week before new student orientation). I know a lot of new September students, like myself, are concerned about this. Please help. Thanks in advance!
