Perhaps you may be aware of this, but until 2014, as a US citizen, you could visit Cuba only on an escorted tour. You may have heard of things like Cubans do not get along well with Americans or the other way around. But, in 2014, President Obama took a trip there. He was the first American president to visit Cuba since 1928 when Coolidge took a trip there. He managed to lift some of the embargo between the two countries, enough so that US citizens can travel to Cuba for tourism purposes, on their own. As a result, in 2016, more than 4 million Americans visited the beautiful country. When you think of Cuba, all you imagine are the white sandy beaches, the blue of the Caribbean, the smell of cigars, and let’s not forget the charm Havana has. The narrow streets lined by baroque architecture and the salsa music will surely enchant you, but there are a few other things you should probably be aware of before departing. The first one is that you need a tourist card. You cannot enter Cuba without such a document. Lucky for you, you can get that at airports and online. The requirements are simple to meet, and you should get the card in just a few days at most. It is also cheap. You may have some difficulties in finding accommodation there, but nowadays, the internet can solve virtually any problem. Even so, do not forget that you need some documentation to get on a plane. Before you leave, make sure that you have travel insurance. It is true that most countries will ask for proof of medical coverage, but the fact of the matter is that you could be denied entry if you do not have insurance. You may or may not be required to present the policy at immigration, but if you are asked, do you really want to take that chance? Most people do not. And after all, travel insurance can actually come in handy. You never know what could happen. Knock on wood, but accidents do happen, and you do not want to be on foreign soil without insurance, do you? When you get to Cuba, it would be preferable to have cash on you. ATMs are available, but you may want to avoid the withdrawal fees and exchange fees. Some people go there with Euros and GBP because Cubans have excellent exchange rates for them, but the US dollar is close to a scam. Under no circumstance should you go to Cuba with Australian dollars because they have no idea what to do with them. Plus, there are two currencies in Cuba. First, there is the CUC, or the Cuban dollar, which is pretty much the same with the US dollar. And then there is the CUP, the Cuban national peso. One CUC is about 22 CUP. Lastly, if you do plan on withdrawing money from an ATM in Cuba, you should let your bank know about your trip. Since fraud happens, you may find your accounts blocked if you do not notify your bank about your trip. Being in a foreign country with no money is not something you want. When it comes to food in Cuba, you should not expect much. The country may offer plenty to see and experience, but the food is not one of them. Trade is not their best advantage, and their food is a bit bland. Even so, you can fix that by taking some salt in your luggage. It is silly, we know, but unless you want to eat meh food on your trip, salt is your best option. You should also be aware of the fact that the internet is a commodity in Cuba. It has not really taken off, so to speak so you may want to learn how to get around without it. Lucky for you, there are apps that you can download, and they work excellently offline. Getting lost is not an issue, at least not as before, but you still want to stay away from over-crowded places. For example, Havana can be stacked with people during their most busy season, and not all of us appreciate the noise. The point is that you can get around pretty well without internet, but make sure to have at least some maps that work offline. Cuba is one of those countries where you need to worry about drinkable water. You should never drink tap water, but only bottled water. There is a catch, however. Local vendors are very aware of the fact that tourist will not drink tap water, which is why they will try to sell you a bottle of water at a price three times higher than it actually is. So just for reference, a bottle of water should not cost more than 0.70 CUC. But vendors will try to sell it to you for 2. As long as you know the real value of water, and you let them know that you know, you will drink water at a decent price. As for when it is the best time to visit Cuba, it depends on your preferences. Most people like to go to Cuba from November to March because that is the coolest and driest season. However, if you do not like crowded places, you should choose another period. May through June I the wet season so you may be soaked pretty much all the time. July through November is a ‘NO-NO’ period because that is the hurricane season. We all know what happened last year, and you do not want to be around that. Even if there are mild phenomena, it is still pretty windy, and it may ruin your vacation. Overall, Cuba is a country worth visiting. They may be a little behind from all points of views, but it has a particular charm that will attract you like a moth to the flame. The street musicians playing salsa, the very well dressed people (go figure), and the surroundings will give you unforgettable memories. Sure, there is some effort in finding accommodation and whatnot, but it is worth it.
