In November 2004, the US Dollar was no longer accepted in Cuba and they introduced
the Cuban Convertible Pesos (cuc). It is adviseable to take UK sterling or Euros
as exchanging dollars into cuc will incur you a 10% charge. Credit Cards that are
not issued by an American Institution are accepted widely in Cuba, however it is
strongly recommended to check with your bank before traveling to avoid any disappointment.
Using a Credit Card will mean that you will incur an additional charge of around
11%, therefore it is advisable to take cash.
Currently 25 Cuban Convertible Pesos (cuc) per person and is payable locally before
you depart Cuba.
Cuba has a year round hot tropical temperature. The cooler period tends to be from
November to March when the temperature drops to around 20°c during the daytime.
May to October is usually rainy season, however the temperature is high and it could
be days before you see some rain – and when you do it is quite refreshing. Mid September
to early November is considered to be the hurricane season, but like British weather
it is not always guaranteed.
Your passport must be valid for at least 6 months from the date that you return
to the UK. All clients traveling to Cuba need a Visa (Tourist Card). The Visa is
valid for a month and is required by everyone including Infants. UK and non – Uk
residents can use the Tourist Card, if you have any doubts (non – Uk) please contact
your local Embassy or alternatively you can contact the Cuban Consulate on 0207
All DVD readers and writers including those on a laptop, Walkie Talkies, GPS Systems
and Play Station Consoles are not permitted in Cuba. If you are caught at the airport,
the item will be confiscated and returned when you leave. You will incur a large
fee for release, therefore best advice is not to take it.
We strongly recommend that you purchase Travel Insurance prior to traveling.
