Take out money. We recommend around $75 US dollars per day per person , while your trip indeed includes all meals, admissions, transportation etc. this money can be used for alcoholic drinks, souvenirs, tipping/gratuities, as well as any other activities you would like to do outside of scheduled itinerary that permits. *Note: Yes - USD is widely accepted currently in Cuba. Your cards however will not work in Cuba, nor will any ATM's so it is better to be safe then sorry. Also please bring new bills, and lots of small bills ($1's, $5's, $10's) as not all places will have change. We do not recommend bringing bills any larger than $20.
