How do I exchange money in Cuba?
You will be able to exchange money once you have arrived in Cuba. Be sure to have your passport on hand. Check your receipt for the transaction and count your change.
Do not accept offers to exchange currency from anyone who approaches you on the street. It is illegal and a common scam practiced all over the world to take advantage of travelers, who are unfamiliar with new currencies.
Securely carry your funds in a money belt and leave excess funds behind in your accommodations for safety is also a good idea.
