Money exchange

Pre covid we were able to exchange our money at the bank, is that not an option anymore?

You probably mean at a Cadeca?

Yes you still can but you will get appalling rates.

Much better to change in the street.

Here is a link for the daily exchange rates. It changes every day, so it's good to keep up to date. You most likely won't get exactly that amount. But if you're within 10 CUP then you're doing okay.

It's up to 360 CUP now for a US $... I'm usually pretty successful with getting within 5 CUP of whatever the going street rate is at the time. Back when the cambio was completely out of control and going up by 5 CUP weekly, and sometimes daily, my Cuban wife there was actually getting MORE than what the elTOQUE rate of exchange was reporting. Until the bubble burst, of course! After that, it was the other way around. jaja
