About Money in Fernando de Noronha.

What about ATM's and money needs in Fernando de Noronha?

The isolation of Fernando de Noronha makes it a more expensive island mainland Brazil. Most of the things on the island cost double compared to Brazil. ‘Real’ is the Brazilian currency and is denoted by R$. Foreign visitors need to know that there are no foreign exchange counters on this island.

The only bank on the island doesn’t have the exchange facility. It would be a good idea to carry enough Reais for your trip because not many restaurants or shops accept plastic money. Some island vendors offer to exchange your US dollars but at exorbitant exchange rate, so it’s best to keep away from them, unless it’s an emergency.
