How do I prepare for Cuba and what should I see?

I'm going to Cuba for a week at an all-inclusive resort in Varadero, and I'd appreciate practical advice on how to prepare (should I buy pesos or U.S. dollars ahead of time or when I arrive?) and what to see on a day trip to Havana.
A few specific questions:
How much money should I take and in what currency? I'm Canadian. Are pesos or U.S. dollars my best bet? Should I bring traveller's cheques or cash with me on the plane? How much? Will it be impossible to access my bank account once I'm in Cuba?
Also, we're planning on a day trip to Havana. Any tips on what to see when we're there?
Any other tips (best cigars to buy, whatever) are appreciated.
