MORE TO SEE:

ELECTRICITY:

110V, 60Hz. US plug. Hotels sometimes have the 220 V. It is recommended to bring an adapter.

CURRENCY:

All purchases must be made only with the Cuban convertible peso (which is at par with the American dollar). The Canadian dollar can be exchanged for Cuban convertible pesos without the 10% premium being charged such as the US dollar. Credit cards and travelers checks are also accepted, as long as they are not issued by US banks. Usually hotels will exchange your currency, but you can get a better rate in exchange offices. 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.
