As Cubakid said but make sure they are clean, no writing on the bills and no rips either.

Then you are good to go also they have no problem with our new bills.

So lucky Janet-Mike. Have a great & wonderful vacation. We have always (in several different countries) exchanged money at the hotel desk.

Really important .......... remember that bills can be changed but coins cannot even the loonies or toonie are not changeable at the banks. SO do not tip with any Canadian coins as the only way the person can get the money is to beg another CDN traveller.

Quite often, the hotel front desk gives a lot worse exchange rate than a bank or cadeca. But some may consider that worth the convenience.

True beardocubauk but for us it was worth the convience of not standing in huge lineups at the bank or the trouble of going into town & finding a bank. Most however were pretty darn close in their exchange rates.

Ye it's been that way for some tie, you can buy Convertible Pesos CUCs at cadecas, exchange offices at airports, most resorts and banks.I say most resorts mainly because the last one I visited Don Lino,Rafael Freyre area near Holguin didn't offer exchange facilities although all the other resorts I have visited in Cuba offered that service. Check the very approximate rate below.

Personally I find the XE site misleading as it does not reflect the tourist rates you will receive when exchanging any foreign currency for CUC's.

The only true accurate rate is found at this link:

tripadvisor.co.uk/…59920449

which is updated by myself or CubaJack as soon as the information is posted on this site:
