Important tips for your Holidays to Cuba.

May 18, 2008
In this piece of writing you can come across answers to some of the questions you have regarding your Cuba holidays. Along many years I have been given suggestion to customers wanting to visit Cuba so I decided to recap some of them. I hope you find them helpful.

Health service in Cuba is free but not for tourists so make sure you are properly insured before you travel to Cuba otherwise you will have to fork out a good amount of money from your own pocket if you require medical attention. I have to add that the health service in Cuba is of a very high standard.

Leave all your important documents in the safe box of your hotel room. Most hotels in Cuba offer this service included in the room price and a very few will charge extra 2.00 CUC per night for the use of the safe box. Keep your passport there as there is no need to carry them while in the streets.

Bring lots of repellent for mosquitoes. It could be very annoying especially in beach resorts like Cayo Santa Maria, Cayo Levisa, Cayo Las Brujas, Cayo Coco, Cayo Guillermo, Guardalavaca and Varadero. It is not likely to find mosquitoes in the cities.

If possible stay at least three nights in Havana. There is so much to do and see that if you stay less than what is recommended you will miss what this vibrant city is really about.

If you are thinking of buying cigars get them from a government shop their quality is supreme but they are a bit expensive. Prices are from 100.00 CUC to 400.00 CUC for a box of 25 cigars. If you buy them in the black market you can find the same boxes fro 25.00 CUC to 100 CUC but most of them are cigars rejected by the quality control of the factories.

If you want to book a sight seeing trip around Havana the best tour guides are employed by San Cristobal Company. These tours can be organized collective or privately. You can even have a horse and carriage ride along the old streets of Havana Vieja (Old Town).

If you want to visit Tropicana Cabaret in Havana try to book well in advance this place although is huge it is always fully booked. The tickets are expensive but the show is worth every penny of your money.

If your tour operator has an office in Cuba which offer representation to their clients try to be contacted on the lobby of your Hotel or if necessary you can visit their offices. There have been cases of scam in which tourists are contacted on the streets and taken to a bar for an information meeting in which you might end to buying few excursions thinking you are dealing with an employee of your tour operator.
