It is a common question of prospective travelers to Cuba from the US, whether they will be able to use their debit or credit cards there.
Cuba says. Yes you can use credit cards, as long as they are not issued in American banks. But American Express is not accepted.
There are however limitations regarding debit cards and lots of them are either not accepted or work in ATM machines.
But there are plenty of ATMs and banks, especially in the big tourist areas like Havana, Varadero and Trinidad where you can withdraw money free of charge.
