Currently it is not possible to use the credit and debit cards of the United States in Cuba, (only for payments of medical services ON LINE) so it is important to carry enough cash for your out-of-pocket expenses. You can exchange US dollars for Cuban Pesos at the airport, hotels, or exchange houses.
