I know on Dutch SXM you dont need the Antillean Guilder, but what about the ABCs? Do they all take the USD for everything cabs, food, drinks or will I need to get any of these Guilders?

Thanks in advance.

You would need Guilders for the ABC Islands.

No, they accept US dollars. Some will give you change back in Guilders but US dollars is accepted. We always used US dollars in Curacao and Aruba. I believe it is the same in Bonaire.

We used USD in both Aruba and Curacao without any problem. USD widely accepted. But as noted above, you may receive change back in guilders, which isn't a big deal. They actually came in handy for parking meters downtown and beach bathrooms. thumbsup
