I will be sailing around Cuba, visiting several communities. What are good small gifts for the locals?
When I went last Sept Euro's were getting the best rate. USD will always be the worst rate.
Gifts, old clothes or toiletries. almost 10 years agoAnswered by LP via WorldNomads.com
Agree, USD is the worst because of a 10% surcharge. I took CAD the last time I went and did much better. What ever you take, you will have to exchange it for Convertible Pesos (CUC) although Cubans sometimes call them dollars or chavitos.
Here is a link to the exchange rate for CUC to other currencies:
CUCs are worthless outside of Cuba so make sure you don't have a lot left over when you leave the island. Keep in mind you will need $25 CUC for the airport tax when you leave. over 9 years agoAnswered by Wayne via Travellr.com
