Question: How do i ensure i don’t get cheated when changing money at José Martí International Airport Cadeca? I am arriving from London Gatwick with around £1000. Should i change them all at once? Into small notes?
Answer: Here is the site for the latest average exchange rates at CADECA. http://www.cubacurrency.com/exchange_rates.html
The rate may be a little bit less at the airport so the best is to change a small amount there and the rest at one of the many Cadeca money exchanges facilities in the city. For easier spending you can ask for 20 CUC notes. The CUC is the Cuban convertible currency.
