Will the "new" Canadian $20 Bills be accepted?

Sorry if this is a bit of a silly question, but the last time we went to Cuba (Holguin) we didn't have the new bills yet. We want to make sure we won't have a problem exchanging the new $20 bills at the cadeca/hotel (we are staying at Brisas).

I've heard that they are very fussy on the bills being in good condition in Santa Lucia.

Thanks for your help! :D

Absolutely no problems in Cuba with the new 20, 50 and 100 CDN dollar bills. Plastic is just as fantastic for the Cuban gov't. Yes, they do not want bills with rips or writings on them like the older bills would sometimes get.

I didn't have any problem. We took all new 20's.
