All about currency in Cuba 73 Written by Wild Caribe

Money exchange questions are common in travelers arranging their journey to Cuba. If you have doubts and questions about the Cuban currency, this is the post you need to read.


What currency is used in cuba? How much is 1 CUC? Where can I get CUCs? Credit cards in Cuba CUC exchange rate What currency is used in cuba? In Cuba there are two currencies: the Cuban peso  (CUP), which is the Cuban currency used by the government to pay the Cubans; and the Cuban convertible peso (CUC) which is used mainly by tourism.

One simple way to differentiate the Cuban currency is by looking at the coin’s head.  The face of different national heroes is shown in the Cuban pesos or CUP, whereas Cuban convertible peso (CUC) banknotes have printed monuments and socialist achievements.

Cuban Convertible peso or CUC always show the words pesos convertibles in both sides of the bill.  Image by Mike Remember as a tourist in Cuba you will use CUCs, therefore if you want to know how are the banknotes for 1, 3, 5, 10, 20, 50 and 100 CUC visit the website of  Bank Note Museum . Since 2001 coins of 5, 10, 25 and 50 cents and 1 convertible peso are also used.

How much is 1 CUC? Although the Cuban convertible peso are under a process of unification with the national currency, currently many products and services in Cuba, including transportation and accommodation in casas particulares are still paid using Cuban convertible peso. For that, you have to know that 1 CUC is equal to 25 Cuban pesos .

Currency exchange for CUC is 1:1 with the US dollar, that is, 1 CUC = 1 USD. However it is important to note that the exchange of US dollars for Cuban convertible peso is subjected to a tax fee of 10% . That is, for 100 USD you get around 87 CUC.

Where can I get CUCs? You can exchange dollars (and other currencies) for Cuban convertible peso in airports, banks, exchange houses (CADECAS), hotels and department stores . Alternatively, you can find people offering exchange but you should be aware that it might be less convenient compared to the exchange rate offered in authorized places since some of them can even try to pay you with CUPs instead of CUCs.

Credit cards in Cuba Although most of the transactions in Cuba are made with cash, travelers can use Visa and Mastercard to withdraw cash from an ATM or to make purchases . However, you have to bear in mind that not every touristic place like some cays or small towns have ATMs .

Please notice that when withdrawing cash from an ATM with your credit card the amount will be converted first to the US Dollar plus 3%. For example, if you want to withdraw 100 CUC, 103.00 USD will be debited from your account.

Until recently, the use of other credit cards in Cuba like Citibank, Capital One, Maestro, MBNA, AMX, Diners or Egg was restricted. The same applied to Visa cards issued in the United States. However, this is expected to change due to the new agreements being signed between Cuba and the United States.

If you are a holder of any of these cards, we recommend that you check with your bank before you include one of these cards in your luggage .

CUC exchange rate Therefore, if you decide to travel to Cuba with cash, the best exchange rates are the ones offered by banks and CADEDAS and it might be more convenient traveling with Canadian dollars, Euros, British pounds or Swiss francs because the exchange rate does not include the 10% fee applied to USD.

You can check the updated exchange rate for Cuban currency against other currencies at the website of the Central Bank of Cuba .

If, after knowing what currency is used in Cuba you are interested in finding accommodation in a private house in Cuba, Wild Caribe , shows the prices with real-time exchange rates from Cuban convertible peso for the main 32 currencies including Euro, Canadian dollar, British Pound, Swiss francs, Japanese Yen and others.
