Cameroon Currency


The official currency is the Central Africa CFA Franc (XAF), which is divided into 100 centimes. Cash is fairly easy to exchange, and Euros are by far the easiest currency to change for CFA francs. Credit cards have limited acceptance in Cameroon, though most major hotels accept them. Most towns have ATMS; money transfer agencies can be found throughout Cameroon.
