$100.00 bills

We usually exchange our money at the hotel (Sandals),are $100.00 bills generally accepted or should I switch them to something smaller before we go?

No problem with $100 bills if you are exchanging at a Cadeca. Just make sure they have no writing on them or tears.

No idea on that one. Personally I don't think I'd risk that.

You must show your passport to exchange larger bills, that I learnt the hard way...back to the room to open the safe...back down to the lobby...back to the room to put away passport...

Get my drift?

I have never once had to show a passport to exchange $100 bills anywhere in Cuba. What hotel was asking this?

I wouldn't risk the 500 euro. They are hard enough to exchange in europe.

True. I don't need to show my passport when I exchange money in a Cadeca in a town in Cuba. I do have to show it though at a Bank., as you correctly say.

Had to show our passports at Sol Cayo Largo a couple of years ago to exchange anything bigger than a 50 bill, the first week. The second week they were good with us...

Funny, in my neighbourhood, there is hardly anywhere we can spend a $100 bill, but in Cuba...go for broke. Amusing.
