This isn't accurate. A new car is easly 100000 CUC. Cinema is only 1 cuban peso per person. Fitness club or gym is around 20 cuc. Cuba is expensive but the positive side with that country is the safety.

Georgetown. , Guyana a pair shoe .of Good quality 50S. Levi jeans 8000 guy dollars. . But cheaper Chinese clothing is available . This is the Good cubans are taking to Cuba. Health care is expensive.
#Anonymous on Dec 26, 2017 :
1 CUC = 1 USD, not Euro
1 domestic beer was 1-1.5 CUC
Casa partuclars (airbnb) can range from 30-120+ per night
Taxi costs need to be negotiated before travelling as they will charge what they want and make tourists pay extra
Avg restaurant meal for 2 will run about 20 CUC
1 of the 3 "nice restaurants" will run about 45-55 for 2 for a large meal with drinks and main/apps/dessert.
#Anonymous on Jan 27, 2017 :

#Martin cz on Jul 01, 2016 :
This statistic is obscure. Normal meal cost 1usd,domestic bus ticket 0.05usd, cofee 0,05usd.. But there is not globalization and western standard of services. Tourist services are much more expensive.
