In Cuba, two types of circulating currency, the Cuban peso, or simply "weight" (CUP) and the Cuban convertible peso or "dollar" for Cubans (CUC). The rate of change of these two currencies is as follows: 1 CUC = 24 CUP.
On the island all payments for tourism establishments are in CUC (Cuban convertible pesos), which can be purchased at the Casas de Cambio (CADECA), in banks, at airports or hotels. We encourage our visitors to come to our country will change some of your money to CUC. Then as you need may change the rest.
Another way to get cash is through ATMs. In Cuba, accept credit cards Visa and Master Card, not the American Express cards or affiliated with U.S. banks, for which no function ATMs.
