ylw-text.gif While Visa and Mastercard are accepted in some parts of Cuba, it is rare and mostly found in hotels and other businesses that service tourism. Since Americans are not allowed to "spend money" in Cuba, credit cards issued by American banks don't work there. Americans going to Cuba must take cash. (They also don't accept traveler's checks.)
