A tax of 25 Cuban convertible pesos, per person, is payable at the airport at time of departure.

TIPPING:

Tourism Cuban workers rely on tips to survive. People entitle to $1 tip include tour guides, hotel guards, bus drivers, attentive restaurant staff or anyone in the tourism sector which goes beyond the call of duty. Tipping can create opportunities or arrange situations.
