Currency.


In Cuba two currencies apply: the peso and local peso - CUC. We use only the second and they are unofficially based on the U.S. dollar. However, the currency you should take is the euro or pound. In January 2013, one euro bought 1.28 CUC in exchange offices. You can also take cash from an ATM.

Safety.
 
Cuba is very safe both in terms of crime and health issues. This is one of the last countries where potential criminals fear the police, and not vice versa. Medical service is of a high standard, (the pride of the revolution), and strong emphasis is placed on hygiene, control of sanitary containers, preventive spraying against mosquitoes and other things. It is even safe to drink tap water! Amoeba and malaria are virtually non-existent, and there are no threats from wild animals.
