The CUC is a closed currency so unobtainable outside of Cuba. Take sterling, clean notes with no rips or scribbles.

Also have a read of bellagios article 'All you need to know about Cuban currency' which is linked in the Top Questions on the right hand side of the page.

As the links will tell you just take Sterling. The exchange rate yesterday was at it's highest for years at 1.6488 CUC's to £1.
