There are 2 currencies in Cuba. The national money is the Cuban peso which is about 25 pesos per 1 US Dollar. Cubans are paid mostly in these pesos, and partly in the CUC or convertible peso ( chavito ), which is tied to the US dollar. The currency you would receive as a tourist is the conver…tible peso or CUC. The CUC is tied to the US Dollar and is used for luxury items and tourist purchases in so-called "dollar shops."

In Havana you can go to the aquarium, circus, zoo..., in Varadero you can obviously go to the beach and the wonderful places they have there. It really depends where, so you should specify.
