Cuba currency


By Ilona Kauremszky

Q: My girlfriend and I are planning to go to Cuba in early September. Should we be seriously concerned about hurricanes around that time? Also, what kind of currency should we use there Canadian, U.S. or Cuban?

A: Karen Puebla, a representative from the Cuba Tourism Board, says that hurricane season will be around October but "It doesn't mean that there will be hurricanes at that time," she notes. Regarding Canadian currency, you can exchange it for Cuban convertible pesos at any bank, hotel or airport.
