Currency in Cuba can sometimes get a little confusing and a bit daunting for those visiting the country for the first time. This is because it actually has two currencies – the Cuban Peso and the Cuban Convertible Peso. It’s the latter that is the major one and most frequently used by tourists. Cuban currency is not traded internationally, so you will need to exchange your money once you get there. It’s best to take either sterling or Euros as you will be charged 10% commission to exchange US dollars. Alternatively, why not take a look at the Thomas Cook Cash Passport?
