10 Things You Need to Know Before Traveling to Cuba

2.Bring cash and don’t rely on your credit cards

Only a few establishments will accept credit/debit cards in Cuba, so cash will be vital for your trip. Customs regulations allow import of up to 5,000 dollars. Any amount larger than that will be subject to declaration upon arrival. It’s advisable to exchange US dollars to another of the currencies accepted by Cuban money exchange offices, and bring that instead. Cuba imposes a special tax on US dollar exchange, and you’ll be charged an extra 10% on top of the going exchange rate (Cuban hard currency, CUC, is artificially valued at a dollar, meaning that for every 100 dollars you’ll get 100 CUC). You’ll need Cuban money (mainly CUC, CUP—the other type of Cuban pesos—is less useful to tourists) to pay for services and products, as foreign currency is not accepted as a form of payment anywhere.
