Currently, the EURO is the predominant currency in Cuba. However, we suggest you bring cash in both EUROS and US Dollars. U.S. travelers will need to bring sufficient cash for the entire trip. Take into consideration all the extras for which you’ll need cash, such as non-included meals, taxies, souvenirs, and guide and driver tips. Evening shows range in price. More extravagant venues can cost up to $150 with dinner included. Please make sure you bring enough CASH with you for the entire trip. We recommend bringing at least 200 EUROS for local tips and 800 USD per person. You may need even more if you plan to buy original art. Bring cash (EUROS and USD) in smaller denominations so that you can limit the amount of Cuban currency you will receive as change from your purchases.
*We suggest tipping housekeepers on a daily basis, rather than at the end of your stay.
No, credit cards and debit cards issued by U.S. banks cannot be used in Cuba. Due to the official embargo, U.S. issued debit/credit cards are not recognized by Cuba banks. It’s necessary to bring a sufficient amount of cash with you to cover the entire duration of time that you'll be in Cuba.
