Fly to Cuba – what can I bring back?
We’ll immediately warn the gullible traveler: you can’t buy souvenirs in Cuba everywhere. The reason lies in local laws: the goods you purchase must be accompanied by an export license. If it is not there, money is wasted.
Shopping is best done in licensed stores, which are usually attached to hotels. It is also worth trusting large shopping centers.
Now about the payment methods.
In Cuba, there are two monetary units – the peso and the dollar.
Usually in large stores “green friends” of strangers are used, and in markets and in small souvenir shops – pesos.

Do not forget to bargain – here it is accepted.
