Fort Myers Overview
Fort Myers, just as the rest of Florida, has a warm climate virtually all year long. Being so close to tropical and subtropical areas, the average year temperature is of about 24ºC (75,2ºF). The coldest months are from November to February and the hottest ones from June to September. There are short, warm winters and a little wet summers with higher temperatures. Summer's also the time with highest rainfall.
US Dollar (USD). You can exchange currency at the airport as well as in hotels, banks and ATMs. Even some public transport stations offer such a service, though usually at a higher rate. Getting some $ before arriving is a good idea to cover for first expenses, just as asking your bank what's the commission when you travel abroad. In many places both in the city and the State you can use a credit card, so that may be your best paying method.
