    Rates vary between 24 to 25 CUP to one CUC.

    Prices in CUP?

    Things are priced in both cup and cuc now with some places that have prices if you pay with credit card (added charge of about 4 1/2% if I remember correctly).

    With respect to us mongers, well we are sexTURISTS and the girls are the goods and what they provide are the services. Some of us just need to wise up and use more logic than emotion when we make our purchases as TURISTS!
    Hey,

    I have to agree with both Brasil and Rebel about prices when going abroad mongering. After you you go there enough times you get a sense what locals pay for stuff and can are able to navigate the place without overpaying for things.
    Btw, I get in most joints (Casa de la Musica/Don Cancrejo,etc.)paying in CUP instead of CUC, so if you can speak Cubano Espaol one is able to take advantage of lots of places without paying tourist prices. I always exchange CUC's into CUP for this reason also when taking Almendrones (route taxis)

    That's the main reason I hate hiring taxis in Cuba, most try to hustle you on fairs most of the time unless you have set fares like at the airport.

    Mondo.

    ps Hey Brasil, can we count on Brasil to get to the finals in Rusia this time around?

Besides, most of those so called "stupid gringos" are not really the sharpest tool in the shed, just try to deal with real businessmen gringos in a normal business setting and you'll see how stupid they are NOT!

    By the way, "Americanized foreigners" are worst than gringos because on top of it all, we like to pretend that we are what we are NOT: wealthy!

    Just got back from Cuba late last week and thought I post some info for you lucky bastards headed that way, LOL.

    I found a new place to stay this time since my usual apt was not available. This time I stayed at the Focsa, that's the tall building that takes a whole block on 17th and M.

    Owner was pretty cool, we arranged things thru WhatsApp and he sent me photos of the joint. Usually I travel solo but this time a guy I know here when I told him I was headed to Cuba asked me to if he could tag along and we made it over as a team.

    The place is a 2 bedroom apt with share bath and is pretty decent for Cuba, located on the 15th floor with an amazing view of Hotel Nacional and beyond the sea and Morro castle. Seems a lot of USA mongers or maybe not, have cancelled trips since El Trompo put put a warning about Cuba travel.

    Anyway, when we finally got to the apt and started to settle the rent I asked him if any exchange for CUC's was available and without hesitation he told us he could get us 96 CUC! For a 100 USD which is almost par since every country charges a 3% commission when exchanging foreign currency.

    The thing about this building for you mongers that would want to stay here is that the chicas have to show their ID at the desk downstairs, so for most of you that would not work.

    In case someone wants the owner info HMU and I'll send you his contact. Each room goes for $35 a night and is a complete apt with living room, kitchen bathroom and like I said an amazing view.

    One other observation about the exchange rate into CUC's that the owner mentioned was that there is a rumor going around about the Gov finally making a decision to go back to one single currency. And that single currency would be the CUP or peso cubano not the CUC so he said a lot of people are nervous about having to explain to the Gov when exchanging their CUC for CUP where those came from, I think you get it, right?

    Mondo.

    Ha, Yeah I know what a waste. But like I posted before I don't go to Cuba so much for mongering as to try and find a girlfriend who is a regular gal not involved in the pro game.

    I live in Socal and I'm quite satisfied with the mongering scene we have here and quite fond of the Asian variety, so yes while I do partake in Cuba sometimes it's not my main purpose when I travel there. I've thru the years met some nice Cubanas but so far never one which I would call my girl, YET.

    Btw, I had a gal I had met before who I took upstairs and wasn't asked for her ID, but she again is a regular civie and not a pro so I think the people at the front desk were able to tell she's not "working"

    Mondo.
    Thanks for your reply. And good luck with your quest. I think a nice unspoiled Cubana would make a nice long term companion. I just wish my Spanish was better.

    Yes it is a dictatorship of course but the successor (Diaz-Canel) and his generation of party apparatchiks can't wait to throw themselves in the arms of the USA.

    But they will have to as long as Raul and what is left of the compaeros from Sierra Maestra are still alive and kicking.

    Another great thing about Cuba that you didn't mention is that you never (in my experience at least) run into a chica with silicone boobs or ass.
    I also love this about the Cubanas. The only body jobs ever seen was on the LBs and Cuba has it share.
