Cuban Money

In Cuba there are two different currencies: The new official peso is worth one dollar.

You will however get by much easier, money, by using the old cuban peso, that cubans use. It can only be obtained by getting it back in change from vendors.

The ratio of the old peso to the new peso is $25 old pesos = 1 national peso (1 U.S. Dollar)

There' s no getting around them trying to charge you more in cabs. They'll know you're not cuban. Cab rides should be around 1 dollar, maybe less, maybe 2, depending on where you're going.

Yes, US citizens are forbidden to travel to Cuba unless they have permission from the State Department. I did not travel to Cuba, my brother did. I posted this for Karlah, because she is going to be travelling there soon.

You have already been to Cuba! Aren't US citizens forbidden to visit Cuba?
