Currency Exchange HouseThey are allocated all over the country and are in most of the cases, the best money exchange option. Some times there are long lines to exchange money, because theses offices are used by locals to buy CUC (Cuban Convertible Pesos) with CUP (Cuban National Pesos) or the opposite.

You can exchange few CUC to CUP at CADECA if you are planning to use local transportation, buy products at fruit markets or simply try local snacks at the street cafeterias or kiosks.

Note: the exchange rate between Cuban Pesos (CUP) and Pesos Convertibles (CUC) is around 24 CUP for 1 CUC.
