Is there currency exchange at Cienfeugo airport at 12:35am?

We are flying into the airport at 12:35am, from Toronto. Will there be currency exchange booth open at that time?

Or should we try to exchange for CUC from a Canadian bank?

Thanks.

I am not sure the Cadeca will be open that late...?

You can only obtain CUC in Cuba not from a Canadian bank, Ensure you bring CDN funds to exchange...

Oh, cannot exchange at Canadian bank.

So if the currency exchange is not open at the airport at that late hour, we have no choice but to exchange at the resort. Might not get a good rate then.

Do they take Canadian currency if we want to take a trip to Trinidad, for taxi and purchases?

Thanks.

Im not 100% sure it will be closed at the aiport, On my return flight to Havana this past June I arrived to Havana at 2am at the Cadeca was opened...Not so sure on this situation at CFG airport.

If not opened you can exchange money at the hotel you are staying at.. All purchases are made in CUC..

hi there - if you are concerned about having a few CUC's for a tip or to buy a beer - at the airport they will gladly take a 5 dollar bill and give you change - not toonies or loonies. remember to take a few pesos home so you have some with you for the next time you go back !

cheers
