At foreign exchange outlets CADECA, you can buy/sell Cuban convertible pesos (CUC).There are CADECAs all over the country for changing foreign currency into Cuban convertible pesos. Most hotels have a currency exchange office too. US dollars are no longer in circulation, for CADECA US dollar is 10 percent tax when exchanging it for Cuban currency.
 Bacal, Transcard, Visa and MasterCard credit cards are accepted as long as they are not issued by American banks.
Cuba is primarily a cash economy. Wherever you go, you have to pay in cash. Credit cards are only accepted in hotels.
If you bring euros the official exchange varied, at the present is approximate 1 euro x 1.06 CUC in CADECAs.
