Why purchase foreign currency while in Puerto Rico?

Purchasing currency at Banco Popular helps you avoid problems upon arrival at the destination. Such as:

  • waste time searching for an exchange outlet or an automated teller machine to have some cash on hand
  • be able to pay tips or bills in places that do not accept credit or debit cards
  • or surprises for excessive charges

The foreign currency purchase or sale the Bank offers is only for tourism purposes and is never intended for investment purposes.
