Bellagio and I are still posting the daily updates over on TripAdvisor:

For anyone that wants to see the source of this data, you can check the Banco Central website here:
www.bc.gob.cu/Espanol/tipo_cambio_METROPOLITANO.aspTodays rates (Nov. 20/14) for popular currencies are:$100 (CDN) —-> 85.37 CUC£100 ————> 151.47 CUC€100 ————> 121.22 CUC

Thanks Jack, is that the rate generally available at most or all Cadeca exchange offices or just at banks.

Thanks Jack, is that the rate generally available at most or all Cadeca exchange offices or just at banks. That is the bank rate. Cadecas are usually a bit less than that, and hotel front desk rates even a bit lower. I probably should always put that disclaimer on when I post the bank rates.
At the rates listed by the bank for today, November 20, 2014, the three popular currencies will buy:$100 (CDN) —-> 85.66 CUC£100 ————> 152.11 CUC€100 ————> 121.38 CUC

Looks like today Canadian dollar got bit higher so more CUCs for us!

Whilst in Cuba recently I checked the rate daily at my local Cadeca in Banes and it was always the same as the rate at the Bank as shown on the link that CubaJack provided.

Today’s rate: $100 (CDN) will buy 85.15 CUC up from yesterday’s rate of 84.84 CUC.

The rates have been updated on the Banco Central website for today, and, thanks to Bellagio, posted on TA just a little while ago. At today’s bank rates, the three popular currencies will buy:$100 (CDN) —->   84.47 CUC£100 ————> 151.79 CUC€100 ————> 120.10 CUC(As of Thursday, December 11, 2014)
CubaJack:

The Canadian dollar is taking a hammering of late. Sterling isn’t fairing very well either.

That’s right, Ken. The Canadian economy is so dependent on Natural resources that I expect the recent drop in the world price of oil has had a big impact on our dollar.Also, thanks for posting the rates on TA yesterday. To summarize, at today’s bank rates, the three popular currencies will buy:$100 (CDN) —-> 84.02 CUC£100 ————> 151.66 CUC€100 ————> 119.86 CUC(As of Friday, December 12, 2014)

Hey Administrators -Am I permitted to ask if anyone has some CUCs for sale at today’s rate? I’m sure the rate will be lower by Jan. 18

If I am permitted, and someone wants to sell here in Canada, pm me. If I’m not permitted to ask, just post a response here ?, bigjohn

Ask away bigjohn.My local coin shop buys and sells CUC’s for regular customers.I’m thinking $100Cdn buys CUC80 in a local shop that has no expertise to look for fakes, so, I’d buy 1 and 3 CUC notes at best.Terry can tell us but, aren’t there one in 5, CUC20 "USA made fakes" for real, in circulation in Cuba today? What a great reason to replace the notes, eh?

Has anyone else noticed that every CUC20 taken in a shop, gets checked under a light or glasses for fakes?

I was out when today’s rates were posted, and now the rates for tomorrow are available. Thanks to Ken, the rates for tomorrow, Wednesday December 17 are now posted on TA. The three popular currencies will buy:$100 (CDN) —-> 83.27 CUC£100 ————> 152.44 CUC€100 ————> 121.18 CUC
That Canadian dollar is getting weaker by the day. My friend went to the Cadeca in Banes today to change some Sterling I had left her to pay for her and her daughter’s departure tax to the airport for when they fly to stay with me for Christmas next Monday.The Bank exchange rate for today was 1.51143 and she received 1.5115 at the Cadeca showing the rates to be spot on (they always seem to round up to 4 decimal points). I wish she had waited until tomorrow.Incidentally Jack tomorrow, Wednesday, is December 17th!! LOL

Right you are, Ken. I have edited my post to correct that.

With all the excitement over the **new** US policy on Cuba, I almost forgot to transfer today’s currency rates:$100 (CDN) —->   83.19 CUC£100 ————> 151.94 CUC€100 ————> 120.46 CUC(For today, 18/12/14)
At today’s bank rates, the three major currencies will get the following:$100 (CDN) buys 83.36 CUC£100 buys 151.27 CUCand €100 buys 118.68 CUC

At today’s bank rates, major currencies will get the following:Buy for $100 CAD    Buy for $100 US    Buy for £100 Sterling    Buy for €10083.28 CUC               87.07 CUC            151.08 CUC                 118.64 CUC

I have included the US$ rate so that, in case the new détente eventually results in a reduction or elimination of the 10% surcharge, we will be able to see when that happens.

Thanks Jack. It’s good to see the US rate; I’ve been waffling over taking my US money and exchanging it. I think I’m going to try this next time around. We are old hands (in more ways than one) so 95% of the money we take We for tips not for other goods or services. More bang for my buck! And since we haven’t been in the states for many years; may as well start to use it.

If you took $100 US to the bank in Canada today you’d receive $112.26 Cdn. If you took that $112.26 Cdn to Cuba today, you’d get $93.49 CUC, using the exchange rate above.

Thank you SharonAnn: I should rethink this. I could get a good amount of CDN if I went to the bank but I seriously have not stood in line for many years. But I do agree this is the way to go. Thanks again for pointing this out.

No problem. Not a bad time to stand in line and exchange that US money if you have no plans on using it in the future.
