It dépends a lot... Where will you be staying (Habana and Varadero are more expensive than the rest of the country, touristic places are a lot more expensive, etc). It also dépends on your expectations.

No one can offer an opinion when you give no clue as to your travel style or whether you're going to a resort verses travelling independently.

An experienced hardcore budget backpacker can get by on less than $20/day, a high-end traveller who wants all the western amenities can easily spend $300+/day.

Most independent first timers budget around $100/day and that allows for a very comfortable holiday with money left over. A resort holiday is of course a completely different budget.

Petrol is a standard price throughout Cuba and a litre of 'especial' is 1.40 CUC per litre. A can of Cristal or Bucanero beer will cost a minimum of 1 CUC per can, and a can of lemonade, orange or Tukola will be 50 centavos upwards.
