Information about Cuban money
Visitors arriving from the US will no longer have to convert their US dollars to Cuban Pesos, you will be able to use US dollars for purchases. Updated: January 27, 2023.
U.S. credit cards are generally not accepted in Cuba, and even so, you would not be able to use them in many places (it is an evolving situation). Cuba is still a cash economy, we recommend that you bring all the money you will need for your trip in cash. Bring a credit card for emergencies only. In some government shops, in major hotel chains, and in some of the more upscale paladares you should be able to use a credit card if the Internet is working.
