Just saw online - it seems to change by the minute or by website

$1cnd for $0.95 cuc

Best place to exchange your money I find is at the Airport - hotel exchange tends to give you less and line up tends to be crazy busy there

That website is not very accurate and is overly generous with it's rates. You will never get the rate that is stated on their site.

bc.gov.cu/Espanol/tipo_cambio_METROPOLITANO.…

Current rate is 10.00 cdn buys 93.95 CUC

That site is useless. As the CUC is not traded on the world market, that at best an a incorrect figure. The best sites for exchange rates to the CUC is:

bc.gov.cu/Espanol/tipo_cambio_METROPOLITANO.…

tripadvisor.ca/ShowTopic-g147270-i91-k489088…

The later is updated daily by Bellagio or CubaJack.

It costs 1.0644 CDN to buy 1 CUC.

So divide 1 CUC by 1.0644 =.9394 cdn or .94

The xe site is giving the mid-market rate - so that is ignoring commission/exchange margin.

In practice, all currencies exchanges are going to involve some margin.

Make sure whatever you do... Call your credit card company!! Last trip a young lady had hers confiscated because she didn't let them know she was gonna be out of the country. I ended up lending her money(which she mailed me repayment when she got home) but watching her trying to get into the cadacea booth at sol was not funny!
