Cuban Currency

The Cuban monetary system is that Cuba uses two official currencies: the CUP (Cuban Peso) and the CUC (Cuban Convertible Peso). As a not resident, you’ll use the CUC.
The value of the CUC is pinned to the U.S. dollar so that 1 CUC will always equal 1 U.S. dollar. However, there are some exchange and bank fees that you will have to cover.

Cuban money is not available for exchange outside of Cuba, so you have to stop by a currency exchange office once you arrive (and don’t forget to exchange your extra Cuban currency before you leave!).
You can exchange your currency at banks, hotels, and government currency exchange centers (CADECA). CADECA offices are located in airports, hotels, resorts, and shopping centers. CADECA offices are the safest and most reliable places to exchange currency.

The exchange rate for international currencies will vary depending on whether you use U.S. dollars or non-American currency.
For international exchange purposes, 1 CUC = 1 USD, but converting American money into Cuba money will incur a 10% fee. On top of that, you have to add another 3% of bank commissions. You will end up paying 1.13 USD for 1 CUC.
Other international currencies, like the Euro and Canadian dollar, are not subject to a pinned rate or an exchange fee. Instead, their value against the Cuban peso is determined by the international exchange rate.
