Cuba is one of the safest countries in the world to visit, however the situation in the country is very uncertain due to a political and economic crisis, as well as the corona pandemic. Until January 1, 2021, the Peso cubano convertible (CUC) was legal tender, now the Cuban peso (CUP) is the only currency in Cuba. At the money exchange offices run by the state you get 24 CUP for 1 USD and 26 CUP for 1 EUR. On the black market, the exchange rate is much more favourable and you can get up to 100 Cuban pesos for 1 USD / 1 EUR (as of February 2022). At Havana Airport there are only official exchange offices with an unfavourable exchange rate. Keep in mind it’s not possible to exchange Cuban pesos for dollars or euros and that you cannot pay with CUP anywhere at the airport.
