CUC

What fee does Cuba charge to convert Canadian dollars to CUC?

  • Hello vinosma,

    I am not entirely sure. I will ask around for you...

    I do know that Canadian currency does not incur the 10% change fee imposed on the U.S. dollar.

    Hope this helps,

    At the hotel, Canadian Dollars and Euros have about a 5% service fee. In June, with the Euro at 1.25 to the dollar, I got 1.20 CUCs for each Euro from the Conceirge desk on the 8th floor. Across the street from the hotel at Western Union, you will do marginally better in the exchange rate. But the reality is you do not really need any CUCs at all on this trip unless you wish to buy the highly overpriced art.
