Anyone who has experience backpacking in cuba?

CUba Resorts
biogirl asked:

I am thinking about a trip to cuba this winter, and was wondering what experiences others have had. We would be traveling independently, no guide and no resorts. My main questions are:

Average cost of hotels
Easy in getting money (atms, exchange, ect)
attitude towards americans

Thanks for your imput

PS- Only people who have actually been to cuba, please!
oops- meant “ease of getting money” (probably should proof read=)
