          Price for the card should be 1.50 CUC/1 hour. Don't forget to log out if you finish before your time is up. You can use whatever is left over on any unused time on your card at the airport.

          Hi, we've been to Cuba few years back and this year we decided to go again. We used to tip 1 CUC each meal or in the room for the maids every day. At dinner time we used to give 2 CUC (at buffet). I read some of the reviews some tourists say that if you don't tip 5 CUC and up the staff give you hard time. It's hard for me to believe this. Did anyone experienced such issue? Thanks.
