Tips, tricks, and tools to help guide your trip to Cuba
Traveling to Cuba is EASY!
Change your money to Euros in America, then change it to cuban money (CUC) at the airport in Havana
Take more money than needed! Don't worry you can always change it back when leaving Cuba. (Change it back to dollars in the airport)

Don't get ice in your drink
Don't drink tap water
You can drink their bottled water
Before you buy your plane ticket, double check with the airline to check if you can purchase a visa at the airport.
Bring sunscreen, Advil, and Pepto Bismol just in case.
After you booked your ticket, book your Airbnb and contact the owner for any questions or concerns.
Our AirBnB is called "Havenera Vintage"
Pack plenty snacks! Food in Cuba isn't really good.
If you are in a group, do not pay anything more than 130CUC in total to go to Vinales round trip
Restaurant - Black Rose & La Cathedral were our favorites
People are very friendly but be careful, so you don't get ripped off
Download offline GPS, offline translator, and offline music
Don't bring heels. Theirs no reason to
For nightlife, visit La Fabrica
You do not need to pay to see the canon shoot, it's pointless. Just wait by the Malecon
