Once you arrive in Cuba, your passport will no longer be required and you should keep it in the security box in your hotel room and keep with you a color copy of your passport.

What if I am a Cuban born?
Cuban-born U.S. citizens fall into one of two categories for travel to Cuba. Those who departed Cuba prior to December 31, 1970 will require either a HE-11 visa (which can take six weeks to process, is valid for a one-time entry for 30 days, and expires within 90 days of issue), or a Cuban passport; the choice is up to the traveler. Those who left Cuba after January 1, 1971 will require a Cuban passport.
All travelers must have either a United States passport or residency card that is valid at least six months after the planned travel date.
If you are a Cuban born, please contact our office before make any travel arrangements.

A regular tip for a guide is about 5.00 CUC daily per person and for a driver about 3.00 CUC per person. At the restaurants a good tip is about 5.00 CUC per person.
You will be expected to pay for everything in Convertible Pesos known as CUCs. You will need to convert your U.S. dollars into CUC at the hotel lobby. There is a standard fee included when exchanging currency. If you exchange $100 USD, you will receive 87 CUC. If you have CUC remaining in your wallet at the end of you time in Cuba, you may convert them back to U.S. dollars at the airport. Some people will tell you that you should convert your USD to Euros or Canadian Dollars prior to your trip to obtain a better exchange fee in Cuba. This option is your choice completely as it really ends up to be the nearly the same after the conversion fees.
It is mostly 110 volts though most hotel rooms will have a 220-volt outlet as well. If you take a power board to suit your own electrical devices you can get away with one converter.
