You should have time to exchange $ at the airport. I tipped in CUC. When returning home, we were approached by workers wanting to change their Canadian COINS for paper money. I was able to help 3 people. Coins really are useless to them but what happens (imo) is coins are given as tips from those arriving to the country without any Cuban Pesos. The question then is....tip with coins if that is all you have or do not tip at all?
